Most books get audio adaptations, especially now that it’s so easy to access them through platforms like Audible and Libby. But one type of book you don’t often think of as needing an audiobook version are comics, though it does happen for popular series. Audible is looking to take Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed Sandman series to the next level with a newly announced full-cast audio drama.

And when I say full-cast, I mean full all-star cast because there are a lot of big names in here. James McAvoy, known for playing young Charles Xavier in the X-Men films, is cast as Morpheus, aka Dream. Kat Dennings, from Two Broke Girls and the Thor movies, will play Death. Taron Egerton, from The Kingsman, will play John Constantine, and Michael Sheen, who starred in Amazon Prime’s Good Omens as an angel, will play Lucifer. Other impressive names include Riz Ahmed, Andy Serkis, Bebe Neuwirth, Arthur Darvill, and Joanna Lumley. Gaiman himself will be the narrator.

“A truly exceptional cast of artists will be bringing this cultural phenomenon to life. We are honored to be working alongside Neil Gaiman and DC to create a truly immersive adaptation that we know fans and listeners will love,” Audible Originals editor in chief David Blum said in a statement.


After the English language version is released this July, it will be translated into French, German, Italian, and Castilian Spanish and Latin American Spanish.

Sandman is currently available for pre-order on Audible and will be released on July 15, 2020.
