From the mind of New York Times #1 bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a new world filled with dreams, nightmares and wonderful characters living together in a shared universe for a new story unlike anything we've ever seen before.

A rift between worlds has opened, revealing a space beyond the Dreaming. Meanwhile, a book from Lucien's library is discovered by a group of children in the waking world where it should not exist. Lucien calls for Matthew the Raven to seek out their master, Daniel, Lord of Dreams.

As Matthew flies across the Waking World and others, he finds a young boy named Timothy Hunter who, in his dreams, has become the world's most powerful magician-but in his nightmares he is the world's greatest villain. A new House has appeared in the realm of the Dreaming: the House of Whispers, with its proprietor, a fortune-teller called Erzulie. And elsewhere, Lucifer has fallen again, only this time he might be trapped in a Hell of his own design.

Spiraling out of this special issue will be four all-new series set in the Sandman Universe. It all starts here!

Equal part The Fifth Element and Philip K Dick, RELAY is an exploration of monoculture, identity and the deceptive nature of legend set in a thriving future where humanity forcibly assimilates new worlds.

The one wish of the Relay has been fulfilled but what secrets does Hank Donaldson's world hide? And just how far will the mysterious interstellar savior go to keep them?

Written by Zac Thompson (Cable, The Dregs, HER INFERNAL DESCENT) with art by Andy Clarke (REPLICA, Batman) and a story conceived by Zac Thompson, Eric Bromberg (PESTILENCE) and Donny Cates (BABYTEETH, Doctor Strange, Thanos, Venom, God Country), this is a powerhouse of a series that could only be told at AfterShock.
