Comic-Con: Neil Gaiman Announces SANDMAN Prequel
Every so often, Comic-Con is still about comic books. Cross-platform author Neil Gaiman (Coraline) is legendary in the comic world and crosses over into novels, short fiction and films. Unfortunately he couldn’t be here with us in San Diego, but he did record a message for his fans. Gaiman talks to us from Vertigo’s office and shares some quotes from previous Sandman stories before announcing that he’ll be releasing The Sandman, a prequel to his wildly successful graphic novel. The new mini-series will be released in 2013 for the franchise’s 25th anniversary. Fans will be happy to hear that Gaiman’s as-of-yet untitled (or at least unannounced) project will be drawn by J.H. Williams III. Hit the jump to check out the video message from Gaiman along with details on The Sandman.
Check out the video from Gaiman himself along with the full press release for The Sandman mini-series:
