The Sandman Audio Production Comes to Life With New Art and...

“I am moving through your dreams…”

We’re just over a week away from the debut of Audible’s ambitious new audio production of The Sandman and as if we weren’t already too excited to sleep (sorry, Morpheus!), we now have the official cover art and an enticing new trailer to share with all of you.

Just to recap, in case you missed the news when we announced it earlier this year, Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed series of graphic novels will soon be available as an Audible Original adapted and directed by visionary audio producer Dirk Maggs. Gaiman is intimately involved as the project’s Creative Director, Executive Producer and Narrator. Actor James McAvoy will lead the impressive cast as Morpheus along with Kat Dennings as Death, Michael Sheen as Lucifer, Taron Egerton as John Constantine and many, many more. We’ve already gotten one trailer for The Sandman’s audio production, but Audible has released a brand new one, which features some dramatic, dreamlike visuals along with our first taste of McAvoy in the starring role.

As if this wasn’t great enough, we also have our first look at the production’s cover art. Fans of both the original Vertigo comic series and the bestselling graphic novel collections that followed know that cover art is pretty important when it comes to The Sandman, so it’s great to see this latest take step up with a breathtakingly cosmic cover image that appropriately reflects the mythic nature of Gaiman’s tale.

Audible’s The Sandman adapts the first three graphic novels in Gaiman’s series and is due to be released on July 15, 2020. That gives you just enough time to pre-order it at Audible.com/TheSandman and to binge read your copies of the books.

That is, provided the Corinthian doesn’t get you…
