SDCC: Holy @#$%, Neil Gaiman’s Doing a New Sandman Comic


With art by Batwoman‘s J.H. Williams III. Holy shit. It’s only a miniseries, set before the events of the first Sandman comic published in 1988 — actually, let’s let Gaiman explain:

“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,” said Gaiman in the official statement. “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.”
Sounds groovy to me, and it’ll certainly be one of the biggest comics of next year. It’s kind of like Before Watchmen, except no creator is being screwed! I don’t have to feel bad if I purchase it! Yay! (Via The Mary Sue)
