“The Sandman,” the Neil Gaiman-penned comic book series considered a seminal work in the medium, is in the early stages of being developed into a TV series.

Warner Bros. TV is in the midst of acquiring television rights from sister company DC Entertainment and in talks with several writer-producers about adapting the 1990s comic. At the top of the list is Eric Kripke, creator of the CW’s horror-tinged “Supernatural.”

“Sandman” told the tale of Morpheus, the Lord of the Dreaming, a deity who personifies dreams. The book began in the horror realm but quickly made its mark in fantasy and mythology as Gaiman introduced the Endless, a group of powerful brothers and sisters named Destiny, Death, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium (as well as Dream).

The author is not involved in the new developments, though since it is early in the process, that may change.

  3. Neil Gaiman’s Snow Glass Apples and Murder Mysteries, A Play For Voices.

    Now available for all e-readers.

    Includes the original full color text as well as all the original illustrations released with the hand made limited edition.

    In Heaven’s City of Angels before the fall, the first crime has been committed: an Angel has been murdered.
    While the Angelic Hosts labor to create the universe, one of their number is mysteriously slain by one of their own. Raguel, Angel of Vengeance, is commanded to discover both motive and murderer…
    While in contemporary Los Angeles, an Englishman learns a dark story of love and consequences.

    A young princess … her skin as white as snow … her hair as black as coal … her lips as red as blood … an innocent young girl victimized by her evil stepmother.

    Or is she?

    Neil Gaiman’s “Snow, Glass, Apples” turns the traditional “Snow White” fairytale on its head and tells the story from the point of view of the “wicked” stepmother, who knows the truth about this less-than-innocent girl and attempts to save the kingdom from her unnatural and monstrous stepdaughter.
