There is an error variant of Sandman Comics #19.

Two of the pages were printed in reverse order, spoiling the story flow. The error variant is not much more valuable than the normal version.

The comic appears the same from the outside. You have to open the comic and check pages 18 and 19 to see if they are correct.

Sandman #19 Error
