My husband just found this news that Neil Gaiman's Sandman may end up as a TV series! According to the article, Warner Bros. TV is in the process of attaining the television rights to the series and Supernatural creator Sam Kripke may be involved.
Sandman holds a special place in my heart for a couple of reasons. It was the first graphic novel series I read, and it convinced me that storytelling in that format could be just as good or better than a novel. The creativity and epic scope of Sandman makes it my favorite of any work by Gaiman I've read, and it's really exciting to think it could end up as a TV series.
