The Sandman Volume 8: World's End 30th Anniversary Edition by Neil Gaiman
Reminiscent of the legendary Canterbury Tales, The Sandman: World's End is a wonderful potpourri of engrossing tales and masterly storytelling. Improbably caught in a June blizzard, two wayward compatriots stumble upon a mysterious inn and learn that they are in the middle of a reality storm. Now surrounded by a menagerie of people and creatures from different times and realities, the two stranded travellers are entertained by mesmerizing myths of infamous sea creatures, dreaming cities, ancient kings, astonishing funeral rituals and moralistic hangmen. Collects The Sandman #51-56.
