Bryan Talbot provides guest art on this stand-alone story starring a Roman Emperor who heavily disguises himself in order to spend a day, unnoticed, among his people. Through discussion with a servant, the Emperor reveals a stirring connection he shared with Morpheus, the Dream King.

In this story, we follow Augustus Caesar and another man as they spend a day as beggars.

One of the Best Stand-Alone Stories 0

A spectacular stand alone story. Also a great introduction to ancient Rome.Dream appears only briefly in it, but he is the driving force of the story. We see Neil Gaimen's personal take on some of the most interesting charcters in human history. Julius and Augustus Caesar. As an amatuer historian and a lover of ancient Rome, I really enjoyed this story....
