Indeed.I wondered the same thing, but about Tori Amos and Delirium.
The casting looks pretty remarkable - Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer is a great choice, for example. Regardless, I'm wary - The Sandman is an all-time favourite and I think its strengths play well to a comic and not any other medium. I think it'll have to change too much to work as a series.
It’s not a series you need to read all of to enjoy, so you’d be fine to dip your toe in with a couple that sound interesting and take it from there.I have also never read the complete Sandman series. The Sandman series is a little daunting because its 10 (?) trade paper backs and a lot of side stories. I've read a few of the side story graphic novels.
Watching random people in the Internet complain to Neil Gaiman doesn't get his characters (or that he has sold out to SJWs) because Desire's actor is non-binary and Death's is black is funny and depressing at the same time.
Good to know. I may check out a few volumes of Sandman proper (numbered books). I have read and enjoyed a lot of Gaiman's children's books (Coraline, the Graveyard Book, and Ocean at the End of the Lane), but I have not gone much into Sandman proper.It’s not a series you need to read all of to enjoy, so you’d be fine to dip your toe in with a couple that sound interesting and take it from there.
I read the books out of order and didn’t realize I was doing so until halfway through, and didn’t feel like my experience was at all compromised. They work well as individual graphic novels.
Watched the first episode. It's decent, but FX feels a bit like watching an early episode of NuWho. Adaptation is decent, they have changed some stuff to up the drama or to consolidate plot beats, which is A Good Thing. I'm honestly baffled they decided to start with the original arc since it the least interesting part of Sandman and if I didn't know how good it could get I don't know if it would have hooked me yet. But I can't wait to get to The Sound of Her Wings so I'll go on.So, this is out. Has anyone watched it yet?
You can mess with religion all you want, but you mess with copyright laws at your own peril.Neil Gaiman did get a persistent creator credit at the start of every episode, though, which I always found amusing. If we want to get dedicatedly atheistic, wasn't "Lucifer" created by a writer a couple thousand years before Neil?
