“The Sandman,” which Gaiman created alongside artists Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, was originally published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.
According to the official plot, the story begins with an occultist attempting to capture the physical embodiment of death (Dennings) in an affair for eternal life.
But instead, he mistakenly traps Dream (McAvoy), the younger brother of Death (McAvoy), another of the seven divine siblings known as The Endless who oversee aspects of human existence including the desire and despair, fate, destruction and delirium.
After 70 years of imprisonment, Dream finally escapes, embarking on a quest to recover her lost power items and rebuild her kingdom, the world of sleep and imagination called The Dreaming.
