wenty-five years since THE SANDMAN first changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman's legendary series is back in a deluxe hardcover edition!

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Expansive and atmospheric, jammed with brainy, contemplative moments and dry humor.... Gaiman's vivid, wild imagination is grounded in Williams' and Stewart's beautiful, captivating artwork.... Sandman fans will surely be elated not only by the return to the story but also by the stunning, gorgeous artwork, which outshines the original." -Booklist (starred review)

"Dream is a long way from his realm, but for me reading this comic feels exactly like coming home."-The Guardian

"From the first page to the last, The Sandman: Overture #1 is an eruption of hallucinogenic artwork and unreal storytelling."-VICE MAGAZINE / MOTHERBOARD

"Sandman: Overture may go down as one of the best-drawn chapters in Sandman's already legendary run."-Newsarama

"Entering a Neil Gaiman story world is like stepping into a dream, where reality unravels and gives way to an eye-popping blend of the mythical, the fantastic, and the plain old strange. His magnum opus, of course, is a story about dreams--and despite breaking every rule in the book, it's one of the greatest graphic novels ever published."-TOR
