We're still waiting on a trailer for Netflix's upcoming take on Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, but in the meantime, Audible has announced that "Act II" of its audio drama adaptation will be available from September 22.

Joining returning voice actors James McAvoy (Dream), Kat Dennings (Death), Michael Sheen (Lucifer) and Andy Serkis (Matthew the Raven) will be Jeffrey Wright as Destiny, Regé-Jean Page as Orpheus, Brian Cox as Augustus, Emma Corrin as Thessaly, John Lithgow as Emperor Joshua Norton, David Tennant as Loki (no, not that Loki), Bill Nighy as Odin, Kristen Schaal as Delirium, Kevin Smith as Merv Pumpkinhead, Bebe Neuwirth as Bast, Miriam Margolyes as Despair, Joanna Lumley as Lady Johanna Constantine, Niamh Walsh as Nuala and Arthur Darvill as William Shakespeare.

This second part will cover Season of Mists and A Game of You, along with Distant Mirrors and the Convergence from the sixth volume, Fables & Reflections.

The first installment was released in July of last year, and was reportedly the Amazon-owned company’s best-selling original to date. Dirk Maggs will return as director, while Gaiman will also be back on board as narrator, creative director and co-executive producer.

When The Sandman, also known as Lord Morpheus - the immortal king of dreams, stories and the imagination - is pulled from his realm and imprisoned on Earth by a nefarious cult, he languishes for decades before finally escaping. Once free, he must retrieve the three “tools” that will restore his power and help him to rebuild his dominion, which has deteriorated in his absence. As the multi-threaded story unspools, The Sandman descends into Hell to confront Lucifer (Michael Sheen), chases rogue nightmares who have escaped his realm, and crosses paths with an array of characters from DC comic books, ancient myths, and real-world history, including: Inmates of Gotham City's Arkham Asylum, Doctor Destiny, the muse Calliope, the three Fates, William Shakespeare (Arthur Darvill), and many more.

Have any of you guys checked out the first volume of Audible's The Sandman? If not, we highly recommend it.
