Karen Berger, executive editor of Vertigo, then revealed that Gaiman is paired with artist, J.H. Williams III for the series. The Sandman mini-series will be published in 2013.

Gaiman returns to The Sandman for the first time in more than a decade.

"When I finished writing The Sandman, there was one tale still untold," he said. "The story of what had happened to Morpheus to allow him to be so easily captured in The Sandman #1, and why he was returned from far away, exhausted beyond imagining, and dressed for war. It was a story that we discussed telling for Sandman's 20th anniversary... but the time got away from us. And now, with Sandman's 25th anniversary year coming up, I'm delighted, and nervous, that that story is finally going to be told."

"There's nothing like a Neil Gaiman story," said Berger, "and there's nothing like having Neil back home on The Sandman, his dark, soulful, literary epic that transformed comics and continues to captivate countless new readers year after year. Working with him again, and with J.H. Williams, the extraordinary and groundbreaking artist, is truly the stuff dreams are made of."

Each issue of The Sandman mini-series will be published day-and-date digitally. The title will be announced at a later date.
