Neil Gaiman is writing a prequel to Sandman next year

Last night at Comic Con, during a DC Comics panel that focused on its Vertigo imprint, it was casually mentioned that Neil Gaiman would debut a prequel to his Sandman series in November 2013. In a prerecorded message, he provided the following quote:

"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, and why he was returned from far away, exhausted beyond imagining, and dressed for war."

  1. Hurrah!

    I’m still curious about what exactly happened to the first…that is, the previous Despair.

    1. First thing that popped in my mind was ‘please have something in there about the other Despair’! I need to know!!

      But regardless of that, yay all around!!
