And yes, we should all be excited.
Neil Gaiman the writer of the original run of the Sandman has passed the reins to a new team of writers and artists to add to an already rich and engaging universe for its sequel, the Sandman Universe #1. Story by the Legend himself, Neil Gaiman, with art by Bilquis Evely, Dominike “Domo” Stanton, Max Fiumara, Seba Fiumara and Tom Fowler, and colors by Mat Lopes, lettering by Simon Bowland and cover by Jae Lee.
This mega issue will showcase four brand new series: The Dreaming by Si Spurrier (2000AD and Suicide Squad). House of Whispers by Nalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring, Midnight Robber, New Moon’s Arms). Both of which debut in September. Followed by Lucifer by Dan Watters (Limbo, and the Assassin’s Creed comic series), and Books of Magic by Kat Howard (Roses and Rot, and An Unkindness of Magicians) which begin their runs in October.
It looks like a promising start to this beloved series that old fans and newcomers alike can enjoy. Be on the lookout for the Sandman Universe #1 when it graces shelves, August 8th, 2018.
