Author Neil Gaiman will collaborate with artist J.H. Williams III (Batwoman) on a new limited series based on his classic graphic novel The Sandman for the DC Entertainment Vertigo imprint. Gaiman made the surprise announcement via video during the Vertigo panel at Comic-Con. The Sandman miniseries will be published in 2013. Gaiman said he felt “there was one tale still untold” for The Sandman. With Sandman‘s 25th anniversary coming up, Gaiman said the time was right. Each issue of The Sandman mini-series will be published day-and-date digitally. The title will be announced later. Gaiman’s work includes the books on which the stop-motion animated feature Coraline was based as well as HBO’s upcoming American Gods. A movie based on his The Graveyard Book is in the works at Disney. Paramount made a 2007 movie based on his Stardust.
