:lol:

 

I was deep in to The Cure, Cocteaus, Sisters, Depeche etc in the 80s so that may account for my love of these stories.

 

Personally, I was heavily into Nick Cave when I read Sandman in the 90s. They're inextricably linked in my mind.:wub:

Charles Vess is the quintessential Sandman artist to me, the Midsummer Nights Dream issue is a gorgeous thing.

You've made me realise they could make the soundtrack to this a goth delight. 

 

My flat mate in the early 90s was obsessed with Gaiman and made me a Sandman comp tape which I may still have somewhere. Bauhaus, Xmal Deutschland, Christian Death, Aliens Sex Fiend, Rosetta Stone. There was a lot of terrible shit on it. Basically anybody with spikey hair and black eyeliner was Sandman music.

I know this is travesty but I partly blame studying Midsummer Nights Dream for GCSE but I didn't enjoy it. I never liked the story even though and yeah not much has since changed since then. Except maybe hints of Morpheus getting jiggy with Titania, and talking of women Morpheus behaviour was abhorrent in his relationships.

I enjoyed Doom Patrol alot, but Sandman I dunno. Ideally I wish Sandman to be animated.

 

J. M. DeMatteis wrote an animated DC Showcase: Death short, which is on the Wonder Woman: Bloodlines BluRay. (And there's currently a copy on YouTube, split into four parts.)

 

It's not great, but it's miles better than the main feature. And it's noteworthy because if the Lucifer TV series counts as the first on-screen adaptation of a character related to Sandman, then that Death short is the first on-screen adaptation of something involving the Endless.

I've never seen that and J.M. wrote Moonshadow which I also highly recommend to anyone whose read and enjoyed sandman. Though it is a bit more Douglas Adams than Gaiman.

Yeah  remember buying an issue of Moonshadow and was blown away by  Jon J Muth artwork, for me its the only thing I remember from that series. Another great artist who drew some beautiful interiors for Sandman as well.

I highly recommend it and there was a lovely Dark Horse Hardcover that came out last year.  Quick there's one left on Amazon and boy is it cheaper than what I paid for it.

Didn't think anyone else would remember Moonshadow. I loved it, though I remember the cursive lettering absolutely doing my eyes in at several points.

Yeah it's a lot better than the original comics but still hard work even in the hardcover format.

Though I counted many goths and cureheads among my friends, I was never remotely that way inclined aesthetically. If you were to tell me the premise of Sandman, I would have been actively disinterested. But I read it anyway, and though I remember almost nothing about it, I do remember absolutely loving it. Gaiman is just a great writer, when he can squeeze it between being a talking head on documentaries. Not sure it will translate to TV, but i'll give it a go.
