Neil Gaiman announces Sandman prequel

Neil Gaiman announced this week at the San Diego Comic-Con that he’s been working on a prequel to his acclaimed comic book The Sandman and that it would be released next year.

The Independent’s Nick Clark:

The story will follow the build-up to the initial issue when Morpheus is captured and kept prisoner by occultists.

Gaiman said: “When I finished writing The Sandman, there was one tale still untold: the story of what had happened to Morpheus to allow him to be so easily captured in The Sandman #1.”

The British author said he had wanted to write the prequel to commemorate the 20th anniversary of The Sandman’s first issue “but the time got away from us”.
