Neil Gaiman is the author of the seminal graphic novel series The Sandman, and since its first publication in the 1980s, he’s made an indelible mark on culture through his many novels, comic books, television series, and films. Today, The Sandman remains one of his best-loved and most influential works.

And it’s now become a full-cast audio drama from Audible, which has translated the epic graphic novel series into a cinematic soundscape charged with an electric – and by turns horrifying and humorous – story. The Sandman follows the Lord of Dreams as he travels through time, minds, myths, dreams, and nightmares. As a sprawling adventure that covers centuries, it might seem overwhelming.

So who better to explain The Sandman than Gaiman himself?

Hear Gaiman introduce the epic story in the video explainer above, and listen to the bestselling audio saga: The Sandman on Audible.
