The Sandman: Act III Audible Audiobook – Original recording
The groundbreaking audio production of what Los Angeles Times Magazine called “the greatest epic in the history of comic books” continues. Leading perhaps the best cast ever assembled in audio, James McAvoy returns to voice Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams, in The Sandman: Act III, the third installment of the New York Times best-selling audio saga. Award-winning audio trailblazer Dirk Maggs adapts the blockbuster DC graphic novel series written by Neil Gaiman (Good Omens) into another fully immersive listening experience, presented for the first time in breathtaking 3D audio.
In Act III, we follow Morpheus on a grand journey to take care of family business. He visits with his son Orpheus (Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page), an act that brings with it profound consequences. Accompanied by Delirium (Kristen Schaal, Bob’s Burgers), he tracks down their estranged brother, Destruction (David Harewood, Supergirl), the only member of the Endless ever to abandon their post. And at an inn at the intersection of all worlds, a group of travelers are forced together by a storm that threatens to destroy reality itself, with grave repercussions for Morpheus and the rest of the Endless.
All the original cast returns, including Kat Dennings as Death, Aidan Turner as Cluracan, and Neil Gaiman himself as The Narrator, joined by Harewood and other new cast members Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), KJ Apa (Riverdale), Shruti Haasan (Race Gurram), and more.
It’s time to close your eyes and listen. Once again.
Please note: This content is not for kids. It is for mature audiences only. Just like the original graphic novels, this audio adaptation contains explicit language and graphic violence, as well as strong sexual content and themes. Discretion is advised.

Dirk Maggs oversaw this adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s comic series, working to translate the visual medium of the comic books to the audio format. The full cast adaptation makes this possible. “Act III” stars Neil Gaiman as the narrator, James McAvoy as Morpheus, Riz Ahmed as the Corinthian, Kat Dennings as Death, Billy Boyd as Petrefax, Miriam Margolyes as Despair, David Harewood as Destruction, Mathew Horne as Hob Gadling, Andy Serkis as Matthew the Raven, Regé-Jean Page as Orpheus, Kristen Schaal as Delirium, Niamh Walsh as Nuala, Wil Wheaton as Brant Tucker, KJ Apa as Prez, Jeffrey Wright as Destiny, Kevin Smith as Merv Pumpkinhead, Justin Vivian Bond as Desire, Emma Corrin as Thessaly, Joanna Lumley as Lady Johanna Constantine, Kerry Shale as Abel, Simon Vance as Lucien, Samantha Béart as Calliope, Clare Corbett as Eurydice, Barnaby Edwards as the Psychopomp, Ashleigh Haddad as Ishtar, David Holt as the Satyr, among many others.
If these Audible adaptations continue, “Act IV” will adapt the final two volumes, “The Kindly Ones” and “The Wake.” Those will conclude the regular “Sandman” series, though they could potentially adapt “Endless Nights” and “Overture” as well at some future date.
