The fidelity with the original material is reflected in an exceptional way, keeping an almost exact similarity with the vignettes of the plot that has been published in Vertigo and today in DC Black Label.
We present you 10 of the most impressive scenes of The Sandman, which kept absolute fidelity to the comics.
The capture of Morpheus
One of the first vignettes that the television series captured impeccably was the moment in which Burgess the Magician captures Dream, who lies on the floor of the evil wizard’s mansion, where, unlike the comic, Morpheus is held captive in the Magnus’ prison for over a century.
The escape of Morpheus
Another vignette that was masterfully adapted from the first issue of The Sandman was the escape of Morpheus, who, thanks to a security guard, manages to get out of his captivity, but not before showing his power, upon reaching Dreaming.
Rachel’s Last Dream
Another of the passages that was reliably adapted from the comics is the help that Morpheus gives Rachel, Constantine’s girlfriend, to have a peaceful death after the exorcist’s ex-partner used Dream’s sand to escape from the pain that afflicts you.
the road to hell
To get his helmet back, Dream has to go to hell to meet Lucifer, so the King of Dreams and Nightmares must follow the path of the damned to reach the ruler of darkness.
The talk with Nothing
The heartbreaking moment where Dream meets his ex-lover, Nada, is straight out of the comics, including the scene where he sheds a few tears while talking to “Kai’ckul”.
The meeting with Johnny Dee
The episode 24 hours not only captures the ideas of horror that Gaiman captured in the story of The Sandman 6, where Johnny Dee makes a bloody feast, but also the fight between Dee and Morpheus is flawlessly captured, highlighting Morpheus holding Dee in his hand
One of the historically misunderstood characters is Death, who guides the souls of the deceased to the afterlife, but she does her job without being affected by the fear or prejudice of those whose time has come, no matter what it is. an old man or a baby.
The meeting with Hob Gadling
One of the encounters adapted with great fidelity is that of Morpheus with Hob Gadling, the man he believes will never die, and with whom the King of Dreams meets every hundred years in a relationship of encounters and disagreements, where the friendship persists.
One of the moments that was also surprising due to its fidelity to the vignettes of Neil Gaiman’s stories is the annual meeting of assassins where Nimrod opens with an unpleasant joke, to give way to the presentation of the Corinthian, whom the assassins adore.
The Sandman follows in the footsteps of Morpheus, the God of sleep, and his impact on the world, as he tries to right the cosmic and human mistakes he made during his existence.
The result is a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend seamlessly intertwine.
