NEIL GAIMAN Launches New SANDMAN Line of Titles at DC COMICS
Sandman co-creator Neil Gaiman will oversee four new series set in continuity with his classic series, starting with a one-shot titled Sandman Universe, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The one-shot will bring new creators to Sandman, including writers Nalo Hopkinson, Kat Howard, Si Spurrier, and Dan Watters, who will all contribute to the one-shot, which is plotted by Gaiman, before each authoring their own spin-off series. Bilquis Evely will draw the Sandman Universe one-shot, which features a cover from Jae Lee.
Howard will write a new volume of Books of Magic, which follows young wizard Tim Hunter. Spurrier's The Dreaming will follow supporting characters such as Matthew the Raven and Cain & Abel. Howard's House of Whispers will visit the origin of the titular house. And finally, Watters will write Lucifer based on the eponymous demon.
No artists for the books have been announced. Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive gallery of the series' covers. No launch date for the line was announced.
