CONFIRMED: Neil Gaiman And J.H Williams III To Work On New SANDMAN Prequel Series
Neil Gaiman has officially announced plans to return to the world of Sandman with a prequel series which focuses on the early adventures of Morpheus. Check out the first piece of artwork from J.H Williams III and details on the release date after the jump.
Perhaps the most exciting piece of news for comic book lovers to come out of this year's San Diego Comic-Con is the fact that Neil Gaiman will team-up with J.H Williams III for a prequel to Sandman. Rumours of this first surfaced earlier today, but this makes Gaiman's return to the universe (25 years after the first issue was published) official. Below is a video statement from the writer (with just a small part of it transcribed) as well as some stunning artwork from the series.
"In November, 2013, it will have been 25 years since Sandman #1 was published, which means that 2013 seems like a particularly good year to tell that story; to get together with one of the finest artists in comics today to actually explain what Morpheus had been doing before Sandman #1 had began. And I'll be telling that story. So, the as yet untitled (or if it's titled, it's definitely unannounced) new Sandman that's going to be coming out in 2013, I'm incredibly excited to say it's going to be drawn by J.H. Williams."
