Neil Gaiman is one of my favourite authors ever, and The Sandman series he did for Vertigo Comics is his masterpiece. That said, he has many masterpieces in his repertoire. However, The Sandman books are easily his most famous.
Other great works of his include American Gods, which was also turned into a TV series, Coraline, which was turned into a brilliant animated movie, The Graveyard Book, Stardust (also turned into a film), and my personal favourite, The Ocean At The End Of The Lane. I truly love that book.
The Sandman series is happening at Netflix and Neil Gaiman is very proud of it
I'm proud of all involved. https://t.co/v6GDI78Fqv

Gaiman’s tweet was in response to a question about the series and the fact that there’s been a lack of information about it, despite the fact it’s been filming for two months already. Gaiman responded to a tweet which read: “The Sandman has been filming for almost two months now and we have yet to see any leaks or casting news. The curiosity is killing me.”
Gaiman’s response was short, sweet and to the point. He said: “I’m proud of all involved.” It sounds like things are going very well behind the scenes, even though we haven’t heard any casting news for the show, which is quite strange.
There had been a movie in the works a while back with Joseph Gordon Levitt involved. However, it seems like he won’t be involved in the Netflix series, which is a shame. That said, I’m pretty sure they’ve got some very good actors, writers and directors involved in the show. Netflix is good at doing these sorts of shows.
