Not all comic books are about spandex-wearing super heros punching villains and throwing cars, and Neil Gaiman makes that point very clear with his epic Sandman series. The story follows Morpheus, the god of dreams, on a journey to recover his powers and find how he fits into the universe. It's a beautifully written and drawn horror and fantasy story, and right now it's free for Amazon's Kindle ebook reader and the iPad Kindle app. Other issues in the series are US$1.99, so this is your chance to get a taste of Sandman for free.
