A shadowed figure with blonde hair and leathery wings stands behind a tall flame.

If there had been a Sandman movie in the 90s, fans of Neil Gaiman's series would be happy.

I'm not trying to do my stupid wordplay at the moment, but the only word that comes to mind when I see the first photos of Christie's Lucifer is beatific.

Come on, right? She's perfect, from her blonde hair to her cherubic, Renaissance painting-type Curls. In addition to a few other stills from the show, there is also some footage of Christie in Satanic action, which was wrapped up in an incredibly grating Geeked Week preview trailer that seems to think it's necessary to tell people. You can skip to 1:40 in the video and let it affect you.

If you want to start it from the beginning, you should mention that there is some accompanying footage of Tom Sturridge as Dream/Morpheus stuck piecemeal through the Geeked Week trailer. You can wait until Geeked Week, which begins on June 6, when the streamer will inevitably be releasing a lot more Sandman footage.
