    Summary

    Sandman's seventh story, "Sandman Meets the Face," was published in "Adventure Comics," Issue #45, in November of 1939. This story features the appearance of villain, "the Face"; an antagonist--much like "the Mist" for the Golden Age "Starman"--that was retroactively made into an archnemesis for his story's hero, nearly fifty years after his creation. This change was established in "Sandman Mystery Theatre"'s second story-arc, called simply, "The Face," starting with Sandman Mystery Theatre, Issue #5, in August of 1993.

    "The Face," or just "Face," was created by Gardner Fox and Creig Flessel. However, that version is mostly a blank slate; the adaptation of that one-off character--featured in Sandman Mystery Theatre and created by Matt Wagner and John Watkiss--is the template which this story will be using as a base.

    Like "Territorial Tarantula," this story is a composite adaptation of the Golden Age story ("Sandman Meets the Face") and Wagner's story ("The Face"), plus some ideas of my own.

    I hope you enjoy.

    Summary

    "The Sandman," co-created by Gardner Fox and Bert Christman, debuted in April of 1939 as a dream-bound detective in NYC. In April of 1993, 54 years after Sandman's debut in what would later come to be known as the DCU, "Sandman Mystery Theatre" was created by Matt Wagner and Guy Davis; a grittier, more grounded retelling of the Sandman's early years of action.

    "Adventure Comics," Issue #40 featured the first story Sandman was drawn in, although it ended up as his second published appearance. The story is a simple introduction to the character, as he thwarts kidnapper, "the Tarantula," to rescue a kidnapped actress. "Sandman Mystery Theatre"'s first act is an adaptation of the Sandman's debut story. Therefore, I present you with my amalgamation of the two; "Sandman: Territorial Tarantula"!

    I hope you enjoy!
