NYCC 2021: Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman: Act II’ Audible Experience!
  |  @   |  

New York Comic-Con is back this year at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC with a more low-key vibe, reminiscent of NYCC’s of yore. Less crowded, less mega panels and stars, but extra joy. You can just feel the positivity as everyone seems just so happy to be back. On that note, I meandered outside and was drawn to The Sandman: Act II Audible Experience.

Check out the pics from that NYCC experience here below.

Fall 2021 Book Recommendations
  |  @   |  

Welcome first day of Fall 2021…. and with it come lots of new books!

Last year, aka Pandemic Year 1, while self-isolating and staying indoors as much as possible, I threw myself into reading … print books, magazines, ebooks, and audiobooks. So while it was a stressful year on a whole (for all of us), I really enjoyed being able to prioritize reading. This year, what’s become Pandemic Year 2, I wanted to get outside a bit, but also continue to be on the safe side, which meant road-tripping and hiking the great outdoors. Therefore, I’ve leaned more towards audiobooks.

Below are some titles — with accompanying links to the print, ebooks, and audiobooks editions — that I personally am looking forward to this Fall, presented here in order of release date, starting with those releasing in September 2021. After this main list, I’ve included some titles that came out earlier this year that you might have missed, as well as some themed Cookbooks, Crafts, and Guidebooks, along with an Audiobook Spotlight. And with the Fall comes, of course, Halloween and some spookier picks!

TV Series Based On Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’ Coming To Netflix
  |  @   |  

For a while it looked like a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s comic book series The Sandman from Joseph Gordon-Levitt was going to happen. Eventually Warner Bros. moved the project over to New Line, and within a year of that happening Levitt ended up departing the project and the movie ultimately never happened.

Usually when it comes to long comic book or book series, fans would much prefer a TV series adaptation over movies. Especially these days. And that’s exactly the road that Sandman is now traveling on, as Netflix has announced that a series adaptation of Gaiman’s work is on the way to the streaming service.

Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’ Movie Loses Joseph Gordon-Levitt After Disagreement With New Line
  |  @   |  

Back in December of 2013 it was reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was set to produce and possibly even star in and direct a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s comic book series The Sandman for Warner Brothers. The project was then moved from Warner Brothers to their smaller sister studio New Line Cinema in June of last year.

This apparently wasn’t the best move if you were excited about Gordon-Levitt’s involvement in the movie, as it’s now being reported that he has walked away from the adaptation after a disagreement with New Line. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

You can see what Gordon-Levitt had to say about the decision below, as well as Gaiman’s response.

Guillermo del Toro Departs ‘Justice League Dark’; ‘Sandman’ Now At New Line Cinema
  |  

The Hollywood Reporter ran an article yesterday about how Warner Bros. is currently in the process of moving some of their less kid-friendly DC Comics movie projects, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s Sandman adaptation, over to their New Line Cinema division.

Buried at the very end was the most distressing news the article contained: Guillermo del Toro is no longer directing Justice League Dark, by far the one future DC film venture I wanted to see made more than anything.
