The Sandman is a mythical creature who is said to sprinkle sand into the eyes of children at night. This sand induces pleasant dreams and a good night’s sleep. But much like the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus, the Sandman has sometimes taken on a darker, more mysterious character in recent days. As script and book writers, alike, have pulled him from his innocently set disposition into a whole new ominous environment, the Sandman’s character has evolved. My piece casts light on both the traditional and contemporary standpoints of the Sandman.
