    Books of Magic #21 is once again the best thing to come out of the Sandman Universe. Sure, most of the titles are ending, this one included, but that does not mean that this book is not simply spectacular. Barnett has set up a three part epic to end the run at issue #23 and while, I am saddened to know that Tim's time will come to an end, I am thrilled that the story will be worthy. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 29, 2020

    The mini-Glastonbury arc was fun and it delved into some amusing magic and all but this installment is delivering what I've been craving for this run. The venture into the Dreaming is big and the final page teaser is even more delicious. It's unfortunate that all of it is coming at the end of the run of the series and I can't see these characters getting used again for a while because that's usually what happens when books are canceled like this. I'm eager to see where it goes next as the creative team is firing on all cylinders here and the reveals could be quite fantastic. There's a lot to like here for Sandman Universe fans and I'm definitely curious to see if we'll get a big reveal with Izzy before all is said and done. Read Full Review
