The Lord of Dreams has been summoned, and captured, by mortal men. Once free from his captivity, this eternal ruler of Dreams will realize that his troubles are only just beginning.

The Sandman is a Netflix series based on the groundbreaking comic book series created for DC by Neil Gaiman. The series is Executive Produced by Neil Gaiman, Allan Heinberg, & David S. Goyer.

Neil Gaiman is not for everyone and the Sandman universe is huge, told in broken parts over many books. I’ll be interested to see if this crosses over from the intense fans to the regular folk. In any case, expect a lot of OG book/comic book peeps to snub their noses at the people that just watch the series.
