The plot of The Sandman:
The Sandman is a fantasy epic for mature audiences focused primarily on Dream, one of the seven Endless beings whose existence predates the gods.
Season 1 of the Netflix series is going to be focused on the first two graphic novels in the series: Preludes & Nocturnes and The Doll’s House.
In Preludes & Nocturnes, Dream escapes from captivity under the Burgess family of occultists and goes on a journey to recover his three symbols of power: his ruby, his helm, and his pouch of sand.
In The Doll’s House, Dream tracks down creations that have gone missing from his realm, including the nightmare being known as The Corinthian, and cross paths with Rose Walker, a woman whose search for her brother leads her to a convention for serial killers.
Dream’s imprisonment now lasts 105 years instead of 75 years to avoid messing heavily with the historical timeline.
In addition, some characters have been reimagined in a more diverse manner to reflect how Gaiman would approach creating them today.
Will The Sandman be Worth watching?
Being the first time the episodic series is being adapted into a live-action format, there’s no telling how the show will turn out. The Sandman could be worth watching.
