‘The Sandman’: Ending Explained and Season 1 Breakdown

Finally, after more than 30 years, the epic adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman we’ve been dreaming about is finally here.

The series’ first season is now streaming Netflix. It contains 10 episodes and introduces us to Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), the living embodiment of dreams, along with other members of his family, The Endless. Various filmmakers spent decades trying to adapt the comics to no avail. Eventually Warners made up their minds The Sandman should be a TV show rather than a movie and it looks like it was a very smart call.

This new show adapts the first volume of the original Sandman comics Preludes and Nocturnes, in an impressively faithful way. Whether you’re a fan of The Sandman comics or not, you have to admit: This is a great show. And in our latest DC Comics video, we explore the entire season, looking at every detail taken straight from Sandman books, delve into the mythology surrounding the Corinthian, examine the Dream Vortex and look at Desire’s plane.
