A Handful of Dust

Welcome to a new podcast about Neil Gaiman's The Sandman. We plan to cover all of the collected editions from the main run of 75 issues and possibly some of the spin-off titles as well. We are a father and daughter team who share a love for this fascinating comic full of stories.

The first episode will be released on Friday July 10th, 2020

Content Note: The Sandman series deals with and features some particularly dark and troubling subject matters and we have discussed them briefly and in depth in this podcast. Here is a list of some of the subjects that feature in Book 1, Preludes and Nocturnes:

  • Extreme violence, including graphic depictions of blood. 

  • Homophobic language.

  • Drug abuse and addiction. 

  • Sexual assault and rape.

  • Self inflicted harm and violence.

If you would like more information about the subjects that feature in the comics or in the podcast (we can provide time codes if you wish to listen but skip over these sections) then please feel free to email us:
