DC made a big splash on the first day of ComicCon with news that Neil Gaiman will return to his popular Sandman universe.
At the Vertigo panel, DC revealed that Gaiman is teaming with Batwoman artist J.H. Williams III for a new miniseries.
“When I finished writing The Sandman, there was one tale still untold. The story of what had happened to Morpheus to allow him to be so easily captured in The Sandman No. 1, and why he was returned from far away, exhausted beyond imagining, and dressed for war,” Gaiman said in a statement.
“It was a story that we discussed telling for Sandman‘s 20th anniversary, but the time got away from us. And now, withSandman‘s 25th anniversary year coming up, I’m delighted, and nervous, that that story is finally going to be told.”
The original Sandman ran for 75 issues before it ended.
