Dead Boy Detectives is based on Neil Gaiman’s hit comic series of the same name. It also has a place in The vast Sandman universe. The series follows the ghosts of teenage boys Edwin Payne (George Rexstrew) and Charles Rowland (Jayden Revri). They’re the best friends of friends who spend their days getting justice for fellow ghosts, solving mysteries that were overlooked by the living.

Their adventures find them having to contend with evil witches and the likes of Hell and Death herself. Yes, Death is a woman. Speaking of women, don’t let a name like “Dead Boy Detectives” fool you. Two ghostly girls are on the team; a clairvoyant named Crystal (Kassius Nelson) and her friend Niko (Yuyu Kitamura). They’re there to give our dead duo the backup they need.

I won’t pretend I’m the biggest fan of Dead Boy Detectives. I’ve been following these characters since I was introduced to them in their backdoor pilot in Doom Patrol season 3 when it was supposed to be a different adaptation on the streaming service formally known as HBO MAX.

I find them to be fascinating, they feel like The Hardy Boys continuing to solve mysteries long after death. Having Dead Boy Detectives overhauled to Netflix to live under the same roof with The Sandman surely makes the Gaiman creative family feel whole.
