‘The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country’ To Return Next Year
by Olly MacNamee
Writer James Tynion IV (The Department of Truth) will continue his journeys in the Sandman Universe next year with The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country along with Redneck’s Lisandro Estherren as well as an array of guest artists.
And, if you are a fan who may be late to this particular party, DC Comics will be publishing The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country as both a hardcover release and softback edition. The latter comes with a cover by Alex Eckman-Lawn and a mini-print of the iconic Death, as illustrated by artist Jenny Frison. The softcover edition comes with cover art by Reiko Murakami. Both are out April 4th, the same day as the launch issue of Nightmare Country’s follow-up miniseries, The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country – The Glass House #1.
Tynion IV stated about his return to The Sandman Universe:
“I’m thrilled to announce that Nightmare Country’s follow-up miniseries, The Glass House, is coming early in 2023. The Corinthian is going to be making his way to Silicon Valley, where he will go head-to-head with Angels, Demons, and a breed of creature far more terrifying that anything he’s faced before — Venture Capitalists. Lisandro and I are excited to continue this nightmare tour through modern America and can’t wait for you all to see what we’ve got in store for you.”
But, even before that, we’ll be getting The Sandman Universe: Dead Boy Detectives by Pornsak Pichetshote (The Good Asian) and Jeff Stokely. Read more about that series here.
Launching between the first two Nightmare Country narratives is The Sandman Universe: Dead Boy Detectives by Pornsak Pichetshote (The Good Asian) and Jeff Stokely, featuring Thessaly the witch along with series regular ghost detectives Edwin and Charles. Their investigation into a Thai American girl’s disappearance from her Los Angeles home puts them on a collision course with new and terrifying ghosts straight from Thai folklore that could give even a dead boy nightmares!
Artist Yoshitaka Amano will be producing special connecting variant covers for both The Sandman Universe: Dead Boy Detectives #1 (out 12/27) and The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country – The Glass House#1 (out 4/4). The connecting 1:50 incentive covers, with foil treatment, will be available at your local comic shop timed to publication of each launch issue.
