The Sandman Trailer Breakdown: Which Stories From the DC Comics Are Being Adapted?

Sandman trailer breakdown
August 3, 2022

In its original 75-issue run from 1989-1996, the DC Comics series The Sandman weaved a massive story about the return and downfall of Morpheus the Dream Lord. Written by Neil Gaiman, with pencils by legends such as Charles Vess and Sam Keith, The Sandman often functioned like an anthology series, focusing on the various characters who interacted with Dream and his family, whether they be a house cat who remembers a world of rodent-sized humans or William Shakespeare himself.

The upcoming Netflix series — developed by Gaiman, Batman Begins screenwriter David S. Goyer, and Young Avengers creator Allan Heinberg — seems to follow the same approach. As confirmed at the SDCC Sandman panel, each of the 10 episodes in season one will tell a different story from the Sandman universe.

Attendees of the panel received a glimpse of those worlds, with clips from three episodes. The rest of us all received a look at the trailer, which gives more insight on the characters and tales from Gaiman’s run that are coming to our screens…
