Neil Gaiman revealed at San Diego Comic-Con that “The Sandman” cover artist Dave McKean will be joining the Netflix series, if only for a bit. That donation, it turns out, is closing credits. McKean performed a separate sequence for each of the 10 episodes, which Gaiman called “this wonderful, fluid drama.” Gaiman said that McKean had officially retired from “The Sandman,” but that the Netflix show drew him back to the universe he played a key role in shaping.
When you watch “The Sandman,” whether it’s a stand-alone edition or a collected volume, the first image that catches your eye is Dave McKean’s gorgeous cover. The artist, who collaborates frequently with “The Sandman” architect Neil Gaiman, has illustrated each and every cover of the series, not to mention the covers of the “The Dreaming” spin-off comic. The work can even be found in the cover collections of both comics, titled “Cover Dust” and “Dream States.”
McKean’s art is truly unique. The British artist is not only adept at painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art and photography, but also uses a wide variety of collages and objects found in his work. His “The Sandman” covers are an integral part of the comic’s puzzle, each telling a story of its own. McKean’s first collaboration with Gaiman was “Violent Case” in 1987, but the two have worked together sparingly, including on projects like “Black Orchid” and “The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch.” Honestly, all of the incredible work the two have done together is worth a try, but McKean also has plenty of great projects beyond his work with Gaiman.
