One Perfect Endless Moment - #1 Dream
From Sandman #64 comes this two page sample of a "Week in the life being" of Morpheus, the Oneiromancer, the Prince of Stories, also known as the Sandman...
To me this highlights the true nature of Dream; strange, alien, arrogant, a touch pretentious and (and this is the important part) neither necessarily a nice being, nor always on our side. (Compare and contrast with how Death is presented, and she's next in the series of these I have planned)
I just love the way Gaiman can throw enough ideas out in two pages to keep a short story writer dribbling happily for months (I was tempted to use as my moment the scene where Dream curses a writer with a madness inducing, neverending stream of imaginative stories, as punishment for kidnapping the muse Calliope, but I thought I'd keep use this one because it's not as well known.) And little things like the pilot of the boat being an Easter Island statue with a body.
