Dream (aka The Sandman) has recently escaped decades of imprisonment, and won the battles necessary to reclaim his lost tools. Still despondent over his lost time and the injustices done to him, he mopes about, following his sister, Death, as she makes her rounds on a typical day in London. Inspired by what he sees of the people she touches, Dream is ready to move on with his life.
This variant has an editorial by Karen Berger with an illustration by Mike Dringenberg, "The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of...", and a next issue teaser on the inside covers instead of the DC promotional material found in the regular edition. 600+ copies were printed.
