About ‘The Sandman’

“The Sandman” began as a comic book series, first introduced by author Neil Gaiman in 1989. It offers a fascinating blend of horror and mythology, using anthropomorphized versions of concepts like Death and Despair as characters in its haunting narrative. Fans determined to spoil the series for themselves can pick up the graphic novels, though — as with all adaptations — there will certainly be differences from the source material.

August 5, 2022

After years of imprisonment, Morpheus — the King of Dreams — embarks on a journey across worlds to find what was stolen from him and restore his power.

The series has seen several attempted adaptations before, but nothing has been successfully developed so far. The most recent attempt at a feature-length movie was scuttled in 2016 when Joseph Gordon-Levitt left the film.

That’s just fine by the creator, whose main focus has always been getting the adaptation right. In an interview with Tudum, Gaiman said, “For well over 30 years, my part in Sandman adaptations was just to try and stop bad ones from happening. And fortunately, I was always successful in this.”
