Gothic Council Debates Possible Sandman TV Series

Now that we've finally seen something as difficult as Alan Moore's Watchmen turned into a decent, if not groundbreaking, film, the question on many comic fans' minds is whether or not the long-awaited adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman may finally happen.

The past month has been a slew of conflicting reports on a possible television version directed by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke. First it was on, then it was off, then DC Comics spokesman Geoff Johns announced via Twitter that it was on.

Gaiman himself weighed in recently that the rights to the work haven't even been optioned that he knows of, though he's certainly open to anyone who could do the vast and complex 10-volume comic justice.
