I have desired to make this post for a while now, however, I have intentionally held off in hopes of new information being released. Does anyone else fear for the longevity of the Sandman Universe? Within the last year all four flagship titles have been cancelled. Personally I believe that these lines of books have been the best offering to come from modern DC comics.
The Dreaming provided an adult sense of humor and to a childlike fantasy world.
Lucifer finally made the DC comics Devil absolutely horrifying while remaining true to the character Mike Carey established.
Books of Magic was a worthy sequel to Gaimans original story that paid tribute to classic kids of the 90s.
Hellblazer reestablished the original series cynical tone while also directly continuing from the classic series.
House of Whispers contained words and pictures just like a comic book
The Sandman Universe went from having Five ongoing books to One.
The four flagship titles were all cancelled within Six Months.
DC has stopped publishing under the Vertigo title.
Hellblazer may still be going, but for how long?
The Dreaming Sequel will be a limited series.
Locke and Key most likely will be very short to keep in line with the other books in the series.
It seems as if Locke and Key will be the end of the Sandman Universe. Perhaps its best to leave us wanting more. I just hope I am wrong. Are there any other fans out there? Have I missed anything? If buy chance your on the verge of picking up these books, please do (not house of whispers tho) they are in fact very beginner friendly and you wont be disappointed.
