Ten Sandman stories:

  1. "Men of Good Fortune" (The Sandman #13)
  2. "Fear of Falling" (Vertigo Preview #1)
  3. "Ramadan" (The Sandman #50)
  4. "Hob's Leviathan" (The Sandman #53)
  5. "In Which the Dead Return; and Charles Rowland Concludes His Education" (The Sandman #24)
  6. "The Heart of a Star" (The Sandman: Endless Nights)
  7. "Exiles" (The Sandman #74)
  8. "The Sound of Her Wings" (The Sandman #8)
  9. "A Dream of a Thousand Cats" (The Sandman #18)
  10. "The Song of Orpheus" (The Sandman Special)

I think my favorite of these is "Hob's Leviathan." For one thing, I love the character of Hob Gadling. And the art (by Michael Zulli and Dick Giordano) is incredible, especially that two-page spread. You know the one I mean. And if you don't know, get thee hence to a bookshop or library and find yourself a copy of The Sandman: Worlds' End.
