During the speculator boom in the 1990s comic book market, publishers enhanced comic covers to increase sales. These gimmicks included shiny foil, holograms and even pop-ups! But, one of the coolest enhancements was the glow in the dark cover. Let’s shed some light on the subject, shall we?

Two years after Neil Gaiman started his legendary Sandman, DC Comics released this Sandman Special. It featured an all-new story by Gaiman and also included characters pin-ups by well-regarded artists including Barry Windsor-Smith, Peter Craig Russell, Simon Bisley, Kent Williams, Dave McKean and Sergio Aragones. To celebrate this first in a long line of Sandman spin-offs, we were treated to a glow in the dark cover that reveals a special message from Morpheus: “In Dreams I Walk With U.”
