1989 Sandman #1 NM $120
It has been announced that David S. Goyer will be producing a film adaptation of the graphic novel, alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Neil Gaiman. Jack Thorne has been hired to write the script. The film is scheduled for a December 2016 release.
Hillary Goldstein of IGN praised the comic book, saying that it “is truly the cream of the crop when it comes to Vertigo books. Neil Gaiman’s work on the series is considered legendary for a reason. This story, in its entirety, is every bit as good as Watchman and of equal (if not greater) literary merit. Were I to list the 100 best single comic-book issues I have ever read, three would come from this collection. Whether you have read The Sandman before or are a first timer, this is the one book you need to buy this fall. The stories within are magnificent and the care taken in reproducing Gaiman’s work is the same you’d expect for any great work of literature.”
