One of the first graphic novel series I ever invested in was The Sandman. Neil Gaiman’s story following the king of dreams himself was enchanting, and sometimes raw. It remains one of my favorite graphic novel series to date.
Now, fans can relive the story telling with a new audio book version from Audible. To celebrate, DC Comics and Audible are giving fans a chance to see their dreams manifest in the waking world. Readers and listeners can submit profound dreams and potentially have them illustrated!
There is more information about how to enter the contest below. Check out the press release and let us know if your dream gets chosen!
