Comic book rumor site, Bleeding Cool, posted a news titbit today stating that there is possibility of a new Sandman series in the works from DC Comics with Gaiman writing and J.H. Williams III as the artist. This is a rumor, and no announcements have been made, but according to the site, DC approached Gaiman last night at SDCC and seemed to have a successful interaction. DC asked Gaiman to do a new “Sandman” series a few years back, called “Sandman Zero” that would explore what Dream was up to while captured by the humans. Stay tuned for any more news on the series.
Bleeding Cool says, “Now, seemingly in the light of Before Watchmen, DC have approached Neil Gaiman again. And based on the bar talk at San Diego last night, we can presume that this time, if it is indeed the same Sandman premise and not something new, negotiations have been more successful.”
There is word of a special announcement from Williams III on a new DC project, so who knows.
