The dream of a live-action Sandman series is getting closer to reality with Netflix’s casting announcements for the upcoming adaptation of the Neil Gaiman classic.
In preparation for their big screen MCU debut (sometime in the near future. Hey, they are “eternal”, they can wait), Marvel is launching a brand new series based on Jack Kirby’s even “newer gods”, The Eternals in November.
As Neil Gaiman fans eagerly await the debut of Audible’s radio drama adaptation of the initial story arcs of The Sandman, the writer is promising that both Audible’s presentation and the upcoming Netflix television series will be appropriately updated for the 21st century.
Much to the delight of fans everywhere, The Audible Original adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning comic book The Sandman is only a few weeks away (the old-school radio drama debuts on July 15).
Hot on the heels of the second story arc of Dark Horse Comics’ adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods entitled “My Ainsel”, we were able to interview series artist Scott Hampton about his work on the project, the challenges in adapting a novel to a comic book, and his previous work with Clive Barker.
