Sandman Returns

Neil Gaiman will be writing a new Sandman mini-series. That's really, all I should have to say about such a thing, but I'll go on. From the man himself:
"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," said Gaiman in the official statement. "It was a story that we discussed telling for Sandman's 20th anniversary... but the time got away from us. And now, with Sandman's 25th anniversary year coming up, I'm delighted, and nervous, that that story is finally going to be told."
Kevin Smith touched lightly on this subject when he brought Green Arrow back from the dead, but that was Kevin Smith writing Green Arrow, and this is Neil Gaiman writing Sandman, so I think you know which side I'm coming down on.

Art will be handled by Batwoman artist JH Williams, who I'm going to admit, I haven't taken to. There is a feeling that whenever anything is so different from the norm, it has to be good. Sometimes this is true. And Williams is clearly gifted, I've just never thought that his style fit the world of the Bat family. I do think his style will be right at home in the world of the Undying, and cannot wait for this title to be released.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
