Neil Gaiman’s iconic comic series The Sandman is coming to Netflix, and the first trailer sees the titular Dream Lord get captured. Netflix has released a first look along with some posters for the upcoming series, which you can see below.

The trailer depicts the opening of the first arc of the Sandman series, which was titled “Preludes & Nocturnes” and saw Morpheus/Dream (played by Tom Sturridge in the series) summoned and trapped by a magician (Charles Dance) who was actually trying to capture Dream’s sister Death. That act set Dream on a path that would carry him throughout much of the DC/Vertigo series.

The Sandman also stars Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, Boyd Holbrook as the escaped nightmare The Corinthian, Asim Chaudhry and Sanjeeve Bhaskar as Abel and Cain, Dance is Roderick Burgess, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Mason Alexander Park as Desire, Donna Preston as Despair, Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, Niamh Walsh and Joely Richardson as Ethel Cripps, David Thewlis as John Dee, Kyo Ra as Rose Walker, Stephen Fry, Razane Jammal as Lyta Hall, Sandra James Young as Unity Kincaid, and Patton Oswalt as the voice of Matthew the raven.
