Announced this morning on Entertainment Weekly, and seemingly tied to the advent of Emerald City Comic Con, Neil Gaiman will be curating a line of “Sandman Universe” comics, spin-offs from the famous property, at DC Comics.
This news has been in the works for years, and seems to have faced delays in the past, but it’s finally coming to print, and the first release will be The Sandman Universe one-shot special, coming in August 2018.
The Sandman Universe #1 will be “plotted” by Gaiman but written by Nalo Hopkinson, Kat Howard, Si Spurrier, and Dan Watters, with art by Bilquis Everly and a cover by Jae Lee.
The special will then branch out into four separate series by these creators: House of Whispers, Books of Magic,The Dreaming, and Lucifer.
Artists on these series have yet to be announced.
