One of the best bits of news to come out of the San Diego Comic-Con was the announcement that Neil Gaiman would be writing a Sandmanprequel for DC/Vertigo, with J.H. Williams III handling the illustrations. Yet, since then, there has only been darkness as we await even the smallest morsel of insight on the project.

Hopefully at the New York Comic-Con we'll get a synopsis or even a new piece of promo art about the book. Hell, we’ll even settle for just knowing what kind of word processor Gaiman will be using to write. Any tangible evidence that this book is actually happening will be more than enough to hold us over until its 2013 release date.
