Neil Gaiman’s iconic comic book series “The Sandman” finally gets the series adaptation treatment as it begins streaming on Netflix Aug. 5. Tom Sturridge stars as Dream, aka Morpheus, aka The Sandman. He controls all dreams, but must travel through time and space to restore his kingdom after 105 years of upheaval. Kirby Howell-Baptiste stars as his sister, the Grim Reaper.

Also based on a popular graphic novel, fantasy series “Locke & Key” is back for its third and final season beginning on Aug. 10. The show unspools a mystery that unfolds in a Massachusetts home that is filled with keys that magically open various doors.

Sticking with the comic-book theme, coming to the streamer in August is director Sam Raimi’s trilogy including “Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man 2,” and “Spider-Man 3.” Spidey faces off against the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, and more, with Tobey Maguire as the Queens high-school student with a knack for webbing and fighting villains.

On Aug. 12, coming-of-age comedy series “Never Have I Ever” returns for its third season. Created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, the show follows Devi (played by Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) as she navigates the grief of losing her father with the awkwardness of being a teenager.

Original family show “Super Giant Robot Brothers” will debut its first season on Netflix on Aug. 4 as well. In the animated series, once the squabbling stops, the battling begins! Robot siblings Shiny and Thunder and their whiz inventor must defend Earth when space monsters attack.
