The Sandman is a comic book series written by Neil Gaiman and published by DC Comics. Artists include Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg, Jill Thompson, Shawn McManus, Marc Hempel and Michael Zulli, lettering by Todd Klein, and covers by Dave McKean. It chronicles the adventures of Dream (of the Endless), who rules over the world of dreams. It ran for 75 issues from January 1989 until March 1996. Gaiman's contract stipulated that the series would end when he left it.
Joseph Gordon Levitt confirmed to star and direct Neil Gaimans The Sandman Movie.
The use of the "Prelude" hashtag is of some interest as it suggests that Goyer's script might focus on the series' first collection, "Preludes and Nocturnes," which detail the earthly imprisonment of Dream, his escape and his reclamation of various objects of power.
