About The Sandman
 
Chronicling the tale of Dream, the lord and embodiment of all dreams and stories, Neil

Gaiman’s The Sandman reinvigorated comic book storytelling with its surreal backdrop
and introspective plot. From its inception in 1988, The Sandman became a cult success

for DC Comics and attracted an audience unlike that of mainstream comic books, even
outselling DC’s flagship titles such as Batman and Superman by its conclusion in 1996.


About Nucleus
Since October of 2004, Nucleus has strived to be a welcoming gathering place for the art

loving community by offering quality art, art related goods, and rarities. Focusing primarily

on gallery exhibits, we have also had benefit auctions, product signings, music events, and


artist lectures. After three and a half years, we moved one block east to a much larger and

more dynamic space. Still in the heart of quaint downtown Alhambra, we reopened

in March of 2008 with over 2000 square feet of open gallery space, 1000 square feet of

shop/boutique, and over 3000 square feet of studio/production space. Having exhibited

both local artists and artists from abroad, and catering to an international customer base,

we offer an extensive collection of original contemporary, illustrated, graphic, commercial,

and narrative art all of which are carefully catalogued on our website
