Wiser words have never been spoken.
Enter the Sandman
Empire Online shared an official image of Sandman from the Netflix series of the same name. In the article the photo is featured in, creator Neil Gaiman, provided a description of the series,” You watch Episode 1 and think,” Oh, I get this thing: it’s like Downton Abbey, but with magic'” he says.”Then you’ll be wondering,” What the hell is this” by Episode 2 when you’re meeting Gregory The Gargoyle in The Dreaming. Episode 5 is about as dark and traumatic as anything will ever get. You’ve reached Episode 6, which is probably the most feel-good of all the episodes” It’s a notion that looks set to differentiate The Sandman from all the other lavish fantasy adaptations out there.“If you didn’t like an episode of Game Of Thrones, you probably wouldn’t want any other episode of Game Of Thrones,” reasons Gaiman.”With Sandman, it’s all about surprising you. It’s all about reinventing itself. It’s all about taking you on a journey you’ve not been on before.”
That sounds pretty confusing to us but we like it! The series is slated to be released later this year.
