We’re kicking off our 25 Days of Sandman with The Endless.
They’ll be appearing in Neil Gaiman’s highly anticipated new bi-monthly series THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE, so let’s get to know them!
The Endless are immortal depictions of seven abstract emotions and ideas, each has his/her own realm and responsibilities. They behave as siblings and wear a variety of appearances within the pages of THE SANDMAN.
Twenty-Five years ago THE SANDMAN entered our dreams. On October 30, 2013, Neil Gaiman returns to the iconic comic book series that launched his career with THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #1. It’s a big milestone – a quarter century - and to commemorate the occasion we’re bringing you ‘25 Days of Sandman.’
