Productions Netflix , Lucifer , Sandman and Locke & Key have a great connection. At least, this is the case with comics, as reported by the Comic Book.
It all started with Sandman . The story follows Sonho, one of the brothers of the family called Perpétuos.
The great saga begins with Roderick Burgess, an occultist who hoped to capture Death, capturing his brother, Dream, instead. Eventually, Dream escapes from prison and must go on a quest to retrieve three powerful artifacts snatched from him when Burgess arrested him.
This brings us to Lucifer . The version of Lucifer that inspired the Netflix series was created in Sandman #4. In this issue, Dream ventures into Hell to retrieve one of the artifacts he lost, which fell into the hands of one of Hell’s demons.
History establishes that Lucifer is one of the few beings in the universe more powerful than Dream. They aren’t exactly friends.
In 2018, DC Comics revived the Sandman universe with new comic books. One was a two-part crossover with Locke & Key , subtitled Hell & Gone.
This crossover had a direct connection with the beginning of the Sandman saga , featuring an important participation from Sonho. At this point in the story, he was still trapped in Roderick Burgess’s basement.
It is worth noting that, despite the connection between all these comics, the Netflix adaptations apparently do not exist in the same shared universe. The Sandman series will even feature a new version of Lucifer , played by Gwendoline Christie, from Game of Thrones.
The Sandman series is expected to be released on Netflix sometime in 2022.
