Neil Gaiman's Sandman series redefined comics. A big part of what made them so fantastic, aside from Neil's brilliant writing, of course, are those striking Dave McKean covers. But did you know what they looked like before they got the photoshop treatment?
When you're successful, you get a lot of pitches from other people who want to be successful. A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin has been selling books for decades, so it's no surprise he's been approached by lots of folks wanting to get in on the action. Apparently, one of those wanna-be writers was a young Neil Gaiman.
These days it seems like we'll never see a film adaptation based on Neil Gaiman's acclaimed comic series Sandman (though a TV series isn't out of the question), but back in the '90s, Warner Bros. tried and tried again to get the comic to the big screen. At one point, Gaiman himself even recruited friend and Sandman artist Jill Thompson to craft some gorgeous concept art.
It seems the rumors were true. A quarter century after debuting his iconic comic book series Sandman, Neil Gaiman will return to the character for an all-new prequel miniseries with DC Comics artist J. H. Williams III.
It's been 16 years since fantasy icon Neil Gaiman ended his landmark comic book series Sandman, but it remains required reading for every new comics fan. Reprints, special issues and spinoff series by other writers have kept the Sandman world alive, and word around the San Diego Comic-Con this week is that Gaiman might be returning to the story for the first time in nearly a decade.
For each comic book film that's hit the cineplex over the last several years, there are a gazillion more that never managed to escape development hell.
Quite frankly, no one loves pop culture the way sci-fi fans love pop culture. And the most committed of sci-fi fans will take that love to a whole new level: by commemorating that passion in ink. A couple of years back we showed you 25 sci-fi tattoos from Star Wars, Star Trek and more, but here are 22 additional tattoos to remind us just how unworthy we really are.
You know that report that the proposed Sandman TV series is dead in the water? Well, it may be premature, says one of the head honchos at DC Comics.
Remember that possible Sandman TV series we told you about last September, the one in development from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke? Neil Gaiman wasn't going to be involved in the project, but still, we were pumped. Now it's time to get unpumped.
Why the award-winning writer's return to his popular character fell apart.
