When I got the call from Dirk Maggs to be in the ensemble of his adaptation of The Sandman by Neil Gaiman, I really did think I was dreaming. Such a wonderful cast, and all of it based on Neil Gaiman’s epic books, that have meant so much to me since I was a teenager.
Torn from his realm, The Sandman – Morpheus, the immortal king of dreams, stories and the imagination – was imprisoned on earth for decades. On escaping he must restore his power, descend into hell to face Lucifer, chase rogue nightmares, visit a serial killer convention and cross paths with characters from DC comic books, ancient myths, and real-world history.
Audible and DC present the first in a series of audio adaptations of Neil Gaiman’s best-selling graphic novels, adapted and directed by multi-award-winner Dirk Maggs, performed by an ensemble cast with James McAvoy (X-Men; It) in the title role, and accompanied by an original score by James Hannigan. As narrator, Neil Gaiman will lead you through this dark, literary world in a twisting fantasy journey of myth, imagination and terror.
