Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death in The Sandman.

Netflix’s ‘The Sandman’ Inspires Dreamy Fan Art

There's an Endless amount of gorgeous fan art online.

Few comic book adaptations are as sumptuous, as gorgeously rendered as Netflix’s ‘The Sandman’. The series not only captures the winsome melancholy of Neil Gaiman’s iconic series, but its attention to artistic detail (with visual callbacks to the comics) and style makes the series a feast for the eyes. The series takes viewers across the globe, to Hell, to the Dreaming, and to many other fantastical realms via a combination of practical effects and CGI. For what was long considered an un-filmable series, The Sandman artfully captures Dream’s rich fantasy world without feeling like a video game.

Here’s a selection of some of our favorites:

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
