A Father's Day Book For The Fantasy-Loving Dad
The Sandman Book 1 by Neil Gaiman
If your fantasy-loving dad hasn't met the Sandman yet, introduce him! This soon-to-be Netflixed series spawned one of the best sibling pairings in graphic novel history— the Titular Dream a.k.a The Sandman and his sister, Death. This book (or the outstanding Audible series featuring James McAvoy as Dream and Kat Dennings as Death) is a great intro to this dark, moody classic series. It ain't Star Wars or Marvel, but maybe it's time dad upgraded his taste to "adult." Get the drop on the Sandman before all the normies catch it on Netflix.
