With the show cancelled after the current series, and an online campaign to get it picked up elsewhere, Peter Gross had an idea. He tweeted:

And the person behind Sandman, behind Lucifer, behind the Sandman Presents line, with a series of Sandman ideas turned into spinoff series, a certain Neil Gaiman… agreed.

Well, if anyone was in a position to make such a thing happen… it might just be that certain Neil Gaiman.

A Mazikeen series by the original Lucifer ongoing comic team with the guidance of Neil Gaiman published by DC Comics? With a big #SaveLucifr hashtag on the cover maybe?

Isn't it nice when the internet just helps this kind of thing… happen?
