Neil Gaiman’s Twisted Dreams Are Alive in Netflix’s ‘The Sandman’

When something has such a long history, like the world that Neil Gaiman built with The Sandman, it can feel daunting to jump in without knowing what is going on. Now that Netflix is bringing the comic book story to life, fans of Gaiman’s work might feel overwhelmed at the idea of jumping into the story if they don’t know of Dream and his quest for his stolen belongings and righting the world after being captured.

But the new Netflix series from showrunner Allan Heinberg doesn’t shy away from being an introduction into the story of Tom Sturridge’s Master of Dreams. It’s a story that is laid out before us, as the audience, that keeps us on the edge of our seats through Boyd Holbrook’s Cortinthian and his nightmare-fueled quest to destroy Dream.
