Breadcrumb: A great Cain story

For those of you who are still interested in the Cain story, and specifically about what happens to Cain after he's cursed by God, resources abound. He's been part of popular culture for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. My favourite story is a recent one, from Neil Gaiman's Sandman graphic novels. Issue 21 (the first issue of Season of Mists) features Cain and his mark as important plot points.

Yeah, I noted at some point that Cain and Eve don't get their deaths or lifespans mentioned. I'm guessing Gaiman noticed as well, thus their taking live refuge in the Dreaming. (Though going by a later issue, they aren't actually related in his world.)
