While an expansion of the Sandman universe was announced last May, it's taken until now for the full creative teams to be revealed. The one-shot The Sandman Universe #1, that launches the universe, will be released in August with contributions from writers Nalo Hopkinson, Kat Howard, Si Spurrier, and Dan Watters, with art Bilquis Everly and a cover by Jae Lee.

The one-shot will spin out four new series, with titles that will look familiar to long-time fans.

  • The Dreaming, written by Simon "Si" Spurrier (Motherlands) and illustrated by Bilquis Evely (Wonder Woman).
  • House of Whispers, written by Nalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring) and illustrated by Dominike "Domo" Stanton, a graduate of DC's Talent Development Workshop who previously worked as an illustrator on FX shows like Archer, Chozen, and comics like DMC.
  • Lucifer, written by Dan Watters (Limbo) and illustrated by brothers Max and Sebastian Fiumara (Four Eyes).
  • Books of Magic, written by Kat Howard (An Unkindness of Magicians) and illustrated by Tom Fowler (Rick and Morty).

The Dreaming and House of Whispers will begin in September, while Lucifer and Books of Magic are set to start in October.
