Concept art from the Sandman movie that never was

Many moons ago, Neil Gaiman pitched a three-part cinematic adaptation of his comic book Sandman to Warner Bros. The project never got off the ground and was later canceled entirely. What we're now left with is this collection of stunning concept art by Sandman and Beasts of Burden illustrator Jill Thompson. Check out Morpheus breaking out of the globe, The Corinthian, The Three Witches, and a whole lot more.

This art's presently up for sale and available for ogling. Gaiman announced the release of this concept art on Twitter: "Some years ago, I had to pitch/explain SANDMAN to Warners. Jill Thompson illustrated the pitch. That art's for sale." View the entire gallery over at Cadence of Comic Art. Each image is priced from $800-$900 a pop.
