New THE SANDMAN Comic Series By James Tynion IV Focusing On The Corinthian Coming This April

Fan-favorite writer James Tynion IV is set to return to DC Comics for a new ongoing series set in The Sandman universe. Nightmare Country will focus on the terrifying serial killer known as The Corinthian.

After announcing that he would be stepping away from DC Comics to focus more on creator-owned content, Batman and Something Is Killing The Children writer James Tynion IV has been tempted back to the publisher by the opportunity to work on a comic set in the same world as Neil Gaiman's The Sandman.

The ongoing DC Black Label series, titled The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country, will not focus on Morpheus himself, but rather the terrifying nightmare known as The Corinthian who first introduced during The Doll's House arc.

Lisandro Estherren (Redneck) will provide the artwork, but each issue will also feature a guest artist who will "create a nightmare dream sequence."

“I spent my teenage years reading and rereading the volumes of The Sandman, trying to absorb all of their secrets,” Tynion tells The Hollywood Reporter. “The series taught me that anything and everything was possible in the comic book medium, and set me on the inexorable path of becoming a comic book writer.”

The story will follow The Corinthian as he's "let loose on the world in order to capture another, more dangerous nightmare, this one not created by the Lord of Dreams. A cat and mouse game ensues, one with a net of nightmares that catches not just dreams, but the people who dream them."

The comic is described as "a terrifying travelogue through a nation both recognizable and obscene."

The Corinthian will be played by Logan actor Boyd Holbrook in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Sandman.
