However, fans seemed to love how Neil Gaiman’s graphical novel is now adapted on Netflix.  The trailer shows how much of a mess the Dreaming becomes in Dream’s absence. Many are still wondering about any surprising cameos from unexpected DC Comics characters the way the source material does.


While some fans were criticizing the Sandman trailer, some were in support.
