The Sandman by Neil Gaiman has debuted on Netflix, and in three days, has shot to the top-viewed series across the world. It's a much-awaited moment for fans of the series, which had been stewing in development hell for over 30 years.

The story follows Morpheus, also known as the Sandman, ruler of the Dreaming, as he escapes from involuntary confinement and sets about restoring order to things that have gone awry in his absence. It's a fantastical journey into myths, morals and history, and the series has been regarded as one of the most popular graphic novels of all time.

I first read The Sandman five years ago, after taking the plunge and getting the complete box set from Kinokuniya. As an avid reader, there is no greater joy than discovering and consuming a great piece of work, and I promise you this is a journey worth undertaking.

Now, I'm also not one to gatekeep fandoms, so I'm ALL FOR IT if you've never read The Sandman and want to start now. Go on, check out the link below and be exposed to the incredible world of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman.

By the way, if you're an Amazon Prime member, you should also check out Good Omens, which explores the friendship between an angel and a devil and how they work together to save the world. It's another incredible work by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett that was brought to the TV screens, tied together beautifully by the hilarious on-screen chemistry and performances of Micheal Sheen and David Tennant.

Of course, you can also get the book!
