Abstract:

"Finally re-collected in its entirety is the first graphic novel from writer Matt Wagner's acclaimed reimagination of the original Golden Age Sandman, SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE! In this noir detective tale of intrigue, bigotry and incest, millionaire Wesley Dodds takes on the costumed persona of the Sandman to put and end to crime and corruption in 1930s New York. Donning a gas mask, fedora, business suit and cape, Dodds goes after the worst criminals the city has to offer, including the Tarantula, a brutal kidnapper who is mercilessly preying upon the women of high society and The Brute, a man whose gross sensual appetites for lust and violence are rivaled only by his wealth. These critically acclaimed, award-winning tales are finally available again in SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE BOOK 1. Collects issues #1-12"--
