Neil Gaiman returns to Sandman

Neil Gaiman has penned the prequel to his acclaimed comic Sandman. The new series comes out in October and is drawn by JH Williams III.

From The Guardian:

The storyline describes what happened to Dream before the events of the first ever comic, in which he was imprisoned by an Aleister Crowley-ish Satanist, Roderick Burgess, in the cellar of his tumbledown English mansion at Wych Cross.

Gaiman said: “This is the one story that we never got to tell. In Sandman #1 Morpheus is captured somehow. Later on in the series, you learn he was returning from somewhere far, far away ? but we never got to the story of what he was doing and what had happened. This is our chance to tell that story, and JH Williams III is drawing it. It’s the most beautiful thing in the world.”
