Writers Matt Wagner and Steven T. Seagle and artists Guy Davis and Vince Locke continue their masterly exploration of the pulp detective genre with this fifth collection of SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE as Wesley Dodds is driven by his dreams to fight injustice in the dark of night. Donning a gas mask, fedora, business suit and cape, Dodds goes after evildoers as the vigilante known only as The Sandman.
DR. DEATH AND THE NIGHT OF THE BUTCHER follows Wesley Dodds through two new cases of serial murderers, each more grisly than the last. But the real challenge for The Sandman will be holding on to his paramour, Dian Belmont, once she finally uncovers his secret career.

In these two stories from the pulp-inspired spinoff of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, millionaire socialite Wesley Dodds, in his trenchcoat-garbed guise of the Sandman, tracks down two grisly serial murderers in 1930s Manhattan. Dr. Death is a self-styled mercy killer who dispatches past-their-prime public figures, and the Butcher is a possibly cannibalistic maniac who leaves parts of corpses throughout the city. Meanwhile, Wesley's relationship with Dian Belmont reaches a crucial juncture when she learns of his nocturnal crime fighting. Writers Wagner and Seagle provide a sophisticated, R-rated update of crude-but-potent thirties pulp fiction, and artist Guy Davis expertly evokes the pen-and-ink accoutrements of those slam-bang stories.
