Neil Gaiman announces new Sandman Universe line of comics

DC Comics and Neil Gaiman will celebrate 30 years of the Dreaming when they launch The Sandman Universe in late-2018, a line of four different comics based on the writer's critically and fan acclaimed Sandman series.

While fans might wish for Gaiman to be writing more of this new Sandman content himself, he seems to have assembled an impressive team to assist him. Gaiman will oversee the line and contribute to the Sandman Universe one-shot that sets the stage for the new titles. So for me, the joy is just sitting with smart writers who love the material and saying, "Let's go play".

The four titles will be written by creators hand-picked by Gaiman, with editorial oversight by the executive editor of DC's Vertigo imprint, Mark Doyle. The artists for each title will be announced at a later date.

The fun starts August 8 with The Sandman Universe #1, a one-shot plotted out by Gaiman and written by the four new writers of the four new monthly series - Si Spurrier (2000AD, Suicide Squad), Nalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring, Midnight Robber), Dan Watters (Limbo, Assassin's Creed), and Kat Howard (Roses and Rot, An Unkindness of Magicians) - with art by Bilquis Everly and a cover by Jae Lee. The issue will reintroduce the Sandman Universe and its characters, while establishing conflicts that will be examined in the monthly comic books., THE DREAMING and HOUSE OF WHISPERS will debut in September with LUCIFER and BOOKS OF MAGIC hitting shelves in October. Using the Book of Whispers, they mistakenly steal the essence of Erzulie, a deity of voodoo mythology.

In the one-shot, Dream goes missing, sending the Dreaming into disarray.

The updated snow and ice warning predicts blizzard conditions tonight and tomorrow for the two provinces as Storm Emma approaches. She said: "Today has been an ice day because nowhere in Ireland saw the temperature rise above zero".

Spurrier will write "The Dreaming", which will follow The Sandman's supporting characters "like Lucien the Librarian and Matthew the Raven". But it's a huge sandbox with so many wonderful toys that nobody's getting to play with right now. I liked the idea of getting the toys played with again, reminding people how much fun this is, and also getting the opportunity to work with some fantastic writers.

Dan Watters (Limbo, Assassin's Creed) details in Lucifer how the devil, who disappeared a number of years ago, ended up a blind, poor old man shacked up in a boarding house in a odd town that no one can leave.

Books of Magic, which will feature the new adventures of Tim Hunter, will be scripted by Cat Howard.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You've done Sandman prequels before, like Overture.

We'll have more on this later today. People will ask, 'Can we do this?' and I'll be like, 'No.' Some of that is because one day I will want to go there and tell those stories, even if it's not for another 5 or 10 years.
