Art is fabulous. Writing, eh. Robert Venditti is massaging the Sandman character to fit his plot, not his plot to fit the Sandman character. To those who love the Sandman Wesley Dodds, the overall story concept is interesting, but massaging the Sandman character to make the plot fit is jarring. The idea about using sleep gas to put masses of foreign military troops is ludicrous. It just is, and no more

I hear you about old-school Wesley as seen in Adventure Comics, but when he was reinvigorated in Matt Wagner's Sandman Mystery Theatre, pacifist was a pretty good way to describe Wesley Dodds. Venditti is clearly leaning hard into the SMT run here, and it makes for very good storytelling.
