Sandman Mystery Theatre is a comic book series published by Vertigo, the mature-readers imprint of DC Comics

Sandman Mystery Theatre is a comic book series published by Vertigo, the mature-readers imprint of DC Comics. It ran for 70 issues between 1993 and 1999 and retells the adventures of the Sandman, a vigilante whose main weapon is a gun that fires sleeping gas, originally created by DC in the Golden Age of Comic Books. In a similar vein to Batman, the Sandman possesses no superhuman powers and relies on his detective skills and inventions.

Sandman Mystery Theatre, Vol. 7 book . Somehow, Matt Wagner and Guy Davis were the perfect team to bring the original Sandman back. The books are often more than a little heavy-handed, reminding me more than a little of Mad Men in the way in which they throw the bigotry of the past in their audiences faces, but the more modern touches (the violence and sex in particular) effectively counter-balance any high-handed moralism.

The 90s were a strange time for mainstream comics, and in the midst of shoulder pads, belt pouches and big ass guns, DC's Vertigo imprint was quietly creating some interesting stuff. Matt Wagner, Steven T Seagle and Guy Davis produced 70 issues of a favorite of mine, Sandman Mystery Theatre.

Every volume of this series is an outstanding period crime drama, deliciously noir-ish and pulp-y. Both Wesley Dodds and Dian Belmont are great characters on their own and their relationship is as real and believable as anything in world of masked vigilantes and science criminals possibly could be. What is truly amazing is how Wagner, Seagle and Davis serve multiple masters...in addition to character-rich, gritty detective stories, the book manages to seemlessly tie in Golden Age origins and continuity and even small nods to Neil Gaiman's more fantasy-oriented Sandman series that was published just before it.

This volume contains two stories that are perfect examples of what makes this such a classic series. "The Mist" is a gangster tale that serves as the origin for a super-villain, evolves Wesley and Dian's relationship and explores racial tensions in the U.S. immigrant community during the first half of Hitler's European campaigns. "The Phantom of the Fair" discusses sexual orientation and its place in an idealized future in a thriller centered on how abuse can lead to self-loathing and worse while giving Wesley a human flaw and a hint of supernatural "dream" abilities.

Great stuff through and through. Start with volume 1 and join in the push to get & keep this series in publication.

Any fan of the golden age of comics, or any fan of 1930's themselves should love this book.
Wagner and Seagle continue this outstanding run with two more story arcs highlighting not just the Sandman, but his supporting cast, and the time when the greatest generation was growing up.
There are a few JSA cameo appearances that brought a huge smile to my face. Wesley's relationship with Dian Belmont is the most fleshed out and developed that I've encountered in comics.
I can't say enough about this excellent series. Easily one of my favorite books anywhere.
Strangers to this series probably would like to start with The Tarantula (Sandman Mystery Theater, Book 1)

This book contains two storylines. To me, the first one, "The Mist", was the only good one of this book. It is about a scientist who makes a machine that can rip molecules apart in metals, therefore creating a catastraphe for aircraft and buildings. I won't say anything else, except that the story ends in a twist for the evil scientist. The second story, "The Phantom of the Fair" was a bore for me. It is plainly about a psycho who goes around killing homosexuals. In the first story, Wesley Dodds, or the "Sandman", invents a new gas mask that is less flimsy (It looks just like the one on the cover that Amazon shows).
