Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is often referred to as one of the best, if not even the best, comic series of all time. Now, after a long time waiting, we are getting our first look at Netflix’s adaptation of Gaiman’s magnum opus, and we just can’t get enough of it.
At today’s TUDUM event, Gaiman, together with Tom Sturridge (Dream) and Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Death), showed us the first look at what we can expect from The Sandman TV show. Without revealing too much, check it out below.
Comics begin while Dream is imprisoned and after he manages to space, he has to regain artifacts to get his powers back, but that is just the beginning of something much bigger. We will meet one of the best mythologies developed in comics, beliefs and forces that will guide us on an unforgettable journey.
Check out the official synopsis for The Sandman TV show below:
A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
