Sandman has a number of publications devoted to its annotation thus far, including the online annotations by Ralf Hildebrandt, the ongoing, official Vertigo publication of Annotated Sandman by Leslie Klinger (2012-?), a number of official commentaries including The Sandman Companion (2000) and scholarly works including Sandman Papers (2006).

The present annotations, for the moment, seek only to record my own independent impressions. In the future it could, if anyone wanted it to, serve to unite the various commentaries as a living document.
