Neil Gaiman's long-running comic series The Sandman will make its TV premiere tomorrow.
The New York Times says this is a big deal, for more reasons than the fact that fans — many, though not all — have wanted a screen adaptation for some time.
Among them: the source material itself was diverse, particularly when it comes to LGBTQ representation, and it also received broad literary acclaim.
Tom Sturridge will star as the dream king Morpheus, and Gaiman has played a role in the adaptation as a writer and executive producer.
The NY Times doesn't have a review of the show, but you can read about what to expect from The Sandman if you haven't read the comics.
