At the top of the most viewed content of the moment on the streaming platform, The Sandman grows its list of fans every day.

Among the members, Neil Gaiman is delighted to count George RR Martinauthor of the books that inspired Game of Thrones et House of The Dragon. For the record, the creator of The Sandman had sent a pitch to George RR Martin for his literary anthology series on superheroes Wild Cards, which is expected to be adapted into comics by Marvel. Unfortunately, George RR Martin had no knew how to capture the potential of his project, which is why Neil Gaiman was turned down. As he recently revealed to Netflix, the American author today strongly regrets his choice:

It’s definitely not the best decision I’ve made in my editing career. But look: you sent me this pitch Sandman pour bad series Wild Cards. I refused. So you’ve contacted DC Comics, and see where you are: those TV shows, those comics, those graphic novels, and all those awards.

A fantasy master recognizes another fantasy master

It is true that this mistake by George RR Martin allowed Neil Gaiman to enter the marvelous universe of DC Comics, and today, luck smiled on him.

In an article published on his blog, he revealed all the good he thought of Neil Gaiman’s project. What is certain is that George RR Martin does not hold back from praising the merits of the Netflix series:

Neil Gaiman was kind enough to send a copy of The Sandman in advance. Guys, girls, don’t miss it. If you liked the comics, well, this is a VERY faithful adaptation, Neil Gaiman made sure of that. And if you’ve never read the comic, don’t worry, it’s not mandatory, the TV series stands on its own. It’s a fabulous fantasy, and I hope the show will continue for many more seasons. There are, after all, a lot more comic book issues to adapt.
