In the fourth volume of The Sandman we discuss awkward family gatherings, another visit to Hell, political intrigue in the Dreaming, a troubling interlude in a boarding school, and then return to our theme of how badly Dream behaves.
Content Note: The Sandman series deals with and features some particularly dark and troubling subject matters and we have discussed them briefly and in depth in this podcast.
Here is a list of some of the subjects that feature in Book 4, Season of Mists:
Extreme violence, including graphic depictions of blood and dead bodies.
Child abuse and neglect, including bullying.
A brief reference to sexual assault.
If you would like more information about the subjects that feature in the comics and in the podcast (we can provide time codes if you wish to skip over these sections) then please feel free to email us:
