The first season of the comic adaptation “Sandman” already started on Netflix. Even if you’re eager to jump to the next episode after each episode, you should still take the time to watch the credits.
- On August 5, 2022, the first season of “Sandman” started on the Netflix streaming service.
- The 10 episodes of the star-studded series is a true binge-fest for all fans of the legendary comic series.
- Don’t skip the credits too quickly, or you’ll miss comic artist Dave McKean’s unique animation.
The Netflix series “Sandman” is about the king of stories, one of the seven endless ones, called Dream. The streaming service’s own production is based on the popular DC comics by Neil Gaiman (“Good Omens“, “Anansi Boys”), who is involved in the series implementation as Executive Producer. Gaiman also developed the comic templates for “Lucifer” and “Marvel’s Eternals”.
The star-studded comic adaptation “Sandman” has recently delighted fans on the Netflix streaming service . Although you can hardly contain yourself with the exciting 10 episodes of the new fantasy series and at the end of each episode you would like to start the next one, but you shouldn’t skip the credits too quickly
At the end of each episode, Netflix always offers you the option to skip the end credits in the form of an enticing “Next Episode” button. However, if you skip to the next episode too quickly at the end of the episodes, you’re missing out on artist Dave McKean‘s unique credits here.
The British artist will certainly look familiar to fans of the comic series, as McKean not only illustrated every single cover of the 10-part comic series, but also those of the spin-off comic “The Dreaming”. During San Diego Comic-Con, writer Neil Gaiman revealed that McKean has come out of retirement to do the end credits of the Netflix production.
He also insisted on designing ten different sequences. Each individual episode has thus received a unique animation. So if you jump too fast after the episodes, you’re missing out on real art! So take some time to admire McKean’s great work and at the same time prepare yourself for another exciting episode.

“Sandman” and “Lucifer”
The character Lucifer plays a prominent role in “Sandman” as in the comics that appeared from 1989 to 1996. Neil Gaiman developed his own idea from this and even gave the charming devil his own comic series with the same title.
DC and Fox have already adapted this comic and brought you a popular series with ” Lucifer “. Therefore, fans had hoped that Tom Ellis could return to his signature role in “Sandman”. But nothing will come of it.
Sandman: Where to Watch
“Sandman” can be seen exclusively on the streaming service as a Netflix in-house production and will probably never be seen on free or pay TV, other streamers will also get nothing.
