Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman gained a place in the canon of critically acclaimed comic books thanks to its complex characters and stunning dark fantasy universe.
“For well over 30 years, my part in Sandman adaptations was just to try and stop bad ones from happening,” Gaiman told Tudum. “And fortunately, I was always successful in this.”
The graphic books will now be brought to life on Netflix on August 5th, with a series accurate enough to satisfy fans while also inviting newcomers to the realm of the Dreaming. We’ve created a primer to introduce you to the show, its characters and producers, and the rich mythology created by Gaiman.

The Sandman Plot
The dream is one of the seven godlike siblings – Death, Desire, Delirium, Despair, Destruction, and Destiny – who each represent a different trait, and Dream is in trouble. Death is one of the seven godlike siblings, and Dream is in trouble. He is being held captive by evil but extremely powerful sorcerer who wishes to keep him in captivity.
Every one of our possible dreams and stories is personified in a single godlike human being, and this is what the dream is all about.
The dream has been attempting to elude capture for more than a century. Eventually, he is able to escape, and when he does, the first place he goes is his homeland, which is known as the Land of the Dream.
The Sandman Season 1 will be based on the first two volumes of the comic series, Preludes & Nocturnes and The Doll’s House, which will air in the fall of 2018.
The Sandman comics are currently available for purchase online and in stores for those who wish to read them before the film’s release. The book is also available in audiobook format, with narration provided by an all-star cast if you want to get the full experience.
