Is it just me, or does that look like a big, blue birth canal?

In any case, Jill finds herself in the lair of Bobcat Goldthwait, soon to be identified as the Sandman, of “And Other Tales” fame.

Jill finds the Sandman’s special sleeping powders, along with a giant hourglass. When she approaches the hourglass, the Sandman totally freaks out (though, it’s hard to tell, seeing as how Bobcat delivers all his lines like he’s totally freaking out) and screams at her to stay away from it.

He explains that Jill is in the Land of Nod, where everyone goes to dream. You know, as in, nodding off? So it’s a good thing she didn’t end up in the Land of Jack.
