Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman's legendary series is back! THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE heralds New York Times best-selling writer Neil Gaiman's return to the art form that made him famous, ably abetted by artistic luminary JH Williams III (BATWOMAN, PROMETHEA), whose lush, widescreen images provide an epic scope to The Sandman's origin story. From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE will feature cameo appearances by fan-favorite characters such as The Corinthian, Merv Pumpkinhead and, of course, the Dream King's siblings: Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny. 'People have often asked me what happened to Morpheus to make it possible for him to be captured in THE SANDMAN #1,' Gaiman said. 'And now they get to find out. And finding out, they get to learn secrets of the Endless that I've kept to myself for 25 years. Family secrets. And I should warn you: one of the Endless dies on page five.' The first issue of this 6-issue, bimonthly miniseries features a stunning double-page interior foldout.

BONUS REVIEW by Kirk Jackson


Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams are, as we suspected, a match made in heaven! William’s character designs move and flow through Gaiman’s narrative with a grace and ease only usually seen in dreams. His panel layouts are even more imaginative than what we’ve seen in the pages of Batwoman, and that’s saying something. More importantly, the story as laid out by Gaiman takes you instantly back to that feeling the old book used to give: the feeling that he was pulling back the great veil and letting you in on the whole cosmic mystery. This book is going to be yet another great chapter in the already legendary Sandman legacy (and it has the Corinthian!)

I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
