From Goodreads:
Volume Four of New York Times best selling author Neil Gaiman's acclaimed creation, with updated coloring and new trade dress. Ten thousand years ago, Morpheus condemned a woman who loved him to Hell. Now the other members of his immortal family, The Endless, have convinced the Dream King that this was an injustice. To make it right, Morpheus must return to Hell to rescue his banished love - and Hell's ruler, the fallen angel Lucifer, has already sworn to destroy him.

In this volume:
A Season of Mists: Prologue ~ Nice! Got to meet the other Endless: Destiny, Delirium and Despair. Death and Desire had already been in other volumes. Well, except for Destruction who has left his siblings for parts unknown.

A Season of Mists: Chapter 1 ~ Dream prepares for his journey to Hell and possible battle with Lucifer.
A Season of Mists: Chapter 2 ~ Dream enters Hell and is surprised by what he finds.
A Season of Mists: Chapter 3 ~ Others find out what Lucifer gave to Dream and they make plans of their own.
A Season of Mists: Chapter 4 ~ I have no idea what this is about.
A Season of Mists: Chapter 5 ~ A banquet and sneaky goings on in Dream’s castle.
A Season of Mists: Chapter 6 ~ Dream makes his decision.
A Season of Mists: Epilogue ~ Tying up lose ends.

An interesting time for Dream. I enjoyed the story arc and I still love the artwork.
