Just when it looked like things had finally gotten on track for Neil Gaiman’s Sandman to finally reach the big screen, the troubled production goes and loses its star and director. Will this movie ever get made?
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.
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.
Neil Gaiman returned to one of his seminal works this past year, putting together a gorgeous six-issue prequel comic to Sandman. So, what’s it like returning to this freaky world a full 25 years later?
