The Sandman TV show is coming this summer! Fingers are crossed all the possible ways that this is going to be good. I loved all the comics. I love Neil Gaiman. And I’ve been loving most live action comic book streaming adaptations that we’ve been getting. So my hopes are up!
It looks fantastic. Very spooky. Very accurate. Also very existential. Will it get too weird for me? Maybe! But I’d like to think the showrunners will keep that in mind and make the show very approachable. Also, in case it needs to be said, I’m perfectly fine with Jenna Coleman being a genderbent John Constantine. Why the hell would I have a problem with that?
The Sandman comes to Netflix on Aug. 5.
Netflix held some kind of event on Saturday where they showed off a bunch of new trailers for their upcoming and returning shows. Sounds neat! I’m as much a fan of Netflix shows as the next person. And I wanted to share the best two, in my opinion. Or the most exciting two.
First up is the first look at the Sandman adaptation. Neil Gaiman’s magnum opus has never before been adapted. And it looks pretty cool so far.
Next up is the second season of The Witcher.
I’m a huge fan of the Witcher games and never read the books, so the show is a bit early in Geralt’s timeline for me. But the first season was fun and everybody seemed to like it, so this second season appears to have a better budget maybe? Here’s hoping this Witcher show takes off and we get a whole series worth of content!
Sandman is coming sometime next year, and The Witcher returns on Dec. 17.
I want to be a novelist. That’s my dream job, right there. To be able to kick back and create wonderfully imaginative stories, then share those stories with the world. I have several ideas, but I’ve yet to really get working on any novel. I mean, isn’t everybody trying to ‘finish their novel’? It’s one of those extreme jobs, like a rock star, where you have to work really hard, and even then there’s only a slim chance that you’ll get your big break and be discovered.
The work will be worth it though. I love to write. This blog and my day job are proof of that. I just need to find somebody who will pay me to write what I want to write.
I’ve wanted to write books for a long time now, books or comic books. But ideally, I want to write a novel. An adventure story. Something exciting and character-driven. I have no interest in writing a screenplay and trying to get discovered in Hollywood. Working on a TV show is probably a blast, but that’s still lower on my list than writing a popular novel. So I thought I’d share with everyone My 6 Favorite Authors. These are writers whom I’ve read extensively and have loved almost everything they’ve done. I’m not as well-read as I’d like to be, so maybe I’m missing out on some great stuff, but I’m happy with what I’ve read. Maybe I’ll even get some of you interested in checking out their work.
And much thanks to Alyssa for introducing me to several of these authors.
