    Books of Magic #23 concludes what has been the absolute part of the rebooted Sandman Universe. Kat Howard, David Barnett, Tom Fowler, Craig Taillefer, Marissa Louise, Todd Klein and cover artist Kai Carpenter are all to be applauded for showing us how to tell a human story in the middle of such crazy times for both Tim and us.
