Mike Dringenberg inked the first issues of Sandman, which were penciled by Sam Kieth. When Kieth left the book, Dringenberg took over as penciler, illustrating some of the series’ most memorable issues, designing several major characters, and setting the artistic tone for the book with his understated, realistic style. The most notable issue of Dringenberg’s tenure was the eighth issue of Sandman, “The Sound of Her Wings,” which introduced the Sandman’s sister, Death. Dringenberg also created what is perhaps the most widely seen Sandman illustration of all, a poster depicting The Endless, which was prominently featured in the popular TV program Roseanne, adorning Darlene Conner’s bedroom in the early 1990s.
On Saturday, December 14, Dringenberg will discuss his tenure on Sandman with Ryan Graff, co-curator of the Cartoon Art Museum’s Sandman retrospective Grains of Sand and designer of the museum’s forthcoming Sandman exhibition catalog. Although the catalog will not yet be available for purchase, the Cartoon Art Museum will offer a limited edition original bookplate penciled by Mike Dringenberg, inked by Sam Kieth, and signed by both artists as a special keepsake of this historic exhibition.

About this Author
Novelist Neil Gaiman has sent a British businessman tumbling into a fantastic underworld and had a devil and angel comically conspiring to thwart the Apocalypse. He found his biggest success, though, in Death, Dreams and Destruction — and the four other similarly named siblings who controlled the reins of the human race’s emotional impulses in his graphic-novel series The Sandman, a wholesale rejuvenation of graphic fiction that had everyone from Tori Amos to Norman Mailer spinning with, yes, Delirium.

Neil Gaiman presents The Ocean at the End of the Lane at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House on Tuesday, June 18, 7:00 PM
Part of Unbound at BAM: A Literary Series with Greenlight Bookstore
From one of the world’s most beloved storytellers––#1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Stardust, Coraline) –– comes his first adult novel in eight years. Wondrous and imaginative, and at times deeply scary, The Ocean at the End of the Lane captures the very essence of childhood fear and uncertainty. In a clash of memory and reality, it is a pitched fever dream of a novel, and could very well be Gaiman’s most accomplished work to date.
