Warner Bros. is looking to bring Neil Gaiman’s Vertigo comic The Sandman to a TV near you. Executives are also considering to bring on Eric Kripke, creator of Supernatural, to be the showrunner.
Published in 1989 with a 75 issue run, The Sandman was one of the most intellectual comics to hit the stands. The series focused on Dream and his siblings known as the Endless, Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny. There have always been rumors of an adaptation but this is the first time a known executive producer is attached to bring it to fruition. Personally I think Kripke would do a great job with Supernatural being the best example how he handled a genre show. What do you think?
