The Sandman follows Morpheus the Dream King, and the effects he brings to people and places. Gaiman sums up the story with this brief sentence: “The Lord of Dreams learns that one must change or die, and makes his choice.”
Audible will release its first installment on July 15. This will cover the first three volumes of the graphic novels.
Just last year, DC also announced the coming of a live-action adaptation of The Sandman to be released on Netflix.
