Dead Boy Detectives is an enthralling supernatural horror detective comedy-drama series developed by Steve Yockey, based on the beloved DC Comics characters created by Neil Gaiman and Matt Wagner. This imaginative series features George Rexstrew as Edwin Payne and Jayden Revri as Charles Rowland, two ghost detectives who opt to stay on Earth to solve supernatural crimes instead of moving on to the afterlife.

Edwin Payne, killed in 1916 due to a sacrificial prank gone wrong, and Charles Rowland, who died in 1989 from hypothermia and internal bleeding, form a unique detective duo. Their adventures are complemented by Kassius Nelson as Crystal Palace, a psychic medium who can communicate with the dead, and Briana Cuoco as Jenny Green, the owner of the Tongue & Tail butcher shop. Meanwhile, Ruth Connell – who happens to be one of my favorite actresses – plays Night Nurse, head of the Afterlife’s Lost and Found Department, adding depth to the show’s rich tapestry of characters.

Recurring characters such as David Iacono as David the Demon, Lukas Gage as the Cat King, and Michael Beach as Tragic Mick further enrich the narrative. The show also features notable guest stars like Sherri Saum, Gabriel Drake, and John Brotherton, adding layers to the intricate storyline. Tamlyn Tomita reprises her role from The Sandman as The Principal, Night Nurse’s superior at the Afterlife’s Lost and Found Department. Additionally, Kirby reprises his role from The Sandman as Death and Donna Preston returns to play Despair in this series.

Dead Boy Detectives stands out as a unique addition to Netflix’s lineup, blending supernatural elements with detective drama to create a mesmerizing viewing experience.

For those who’ve seen it already, how was the storyline? Did it do the comic justice? Personally, I’m a big fan of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman universe and I thought this series lives up to those standards.

Overall, “Dead Boy Detectives” is a unique and engaging television series that offers a fresh take on the supernatural genre. With its intriguing characters, atmospheric setting, and compelling mysteries, it’s sure to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
