Neil Gaiman is heading back to his seminal work — The Sandman.
The new book launches from Vertigo in 2013, the 25th anniversary of the first issue of Sandman. J.H. Williams III of Batgirl fame is slated for art chores, a pairing Gaiman says he’s really excited about.
The plot is set to focus on the one story Gaiman felt he never really got to tell: the journey that had made Morpheus weak enough to be captured in an occult ritual in the first issue.
