The Sandman: How the Netflix Series Was Born

Sandman
August 1, 2022

In May of 2019, David S. Goyer made my deepest, wildest fanboy dream come true by asking if I wanted to adapt Neil Gaiman’s award-winning, best-selling The Sandman into a streaming series.

Naturally, I said no.

That’s not entirely true. First, I said, “May I have 24 hours to re-read the books?” Then, after re-reading, I said no.

Not because I didn’t want the job, but because this was The Sandman. The universally beloved masterpiece written by Neil Gaiman, one of the most intimidatingly brilliant writers of our time.
