More Sandman Coming from Neil Gaiman in 2013 – Comic News

Hope you all saw this. Neil Gaiman is going to be returning to his spectacular Sandman series in November 2013, joined by J.H. Williams III, celebrating the 25th Anniversary with a prequel…

Gaiman — who wrote 75 issues of The Sandman from 1988 to 1996 (all collected in “graphic novel” form), producing one of the most celebrated and most erudite comic book series ever — will team with artist J. H. Williams III (Promethea, Batwoman) for a mini-series that’s set prior to the events in Sandman #1. In that story, an English occult leader inadvertently summoned Dream using a black magic ritual involving rat claws and angel wings on June 10, 1916 and held him captive for 72 years.

He says of the story needing be told: “When I finished writing The Sandman, there was one tale still untold: The story of what had happened to Morpheus to allow him to be so easily captured in The Sandman #1, and why he was returned from far away, exhausted beyond imagining, and dressed for war,” Gaiman said in a statement provided by DC Entertainment. “It was a story that we discussed telling for Sandman‘s 20th anniversary… but the time got away from us. And now, with Sandman‘s 25th anniversary year coming up, I’m delighted, and nervous, that that story is finally going to be told.”


Here is his video announcement of the big news, and his thoughts about the Sandman series!
