Big news from Comic Con as Neil Gaiman has announced the return of the Sandman!

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the esteemed book, Gaiman will be teaming with J.H. Williams III for a six-issue miniseries.

The most interesting aspect of the announcement is that the series is actually going to be a prequel. Fans who’re familiar with the first volume may remember that before Morpheus was captured and imprisoned, he was returning for a confrontation dressed for war and carrying powerful equipment. What exactly he was doing beforehand will be what Gaiman and Williams explore.
