The Sandman : Overture, Hardback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Twenty-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.

Review by

It's 1915, the universe is about to end and Dream knows that it's his fault, he saved a star and that star is now creating havoc. Dream has to fight the inertia to allow this to happen. It will leave him exhausted and depleted and possibly glad to be caught and able to allow his reserves to build up again at the beginning of the original series.The story is excellent and the artwork better. I particularly love the cat with it's almost celtic swirls.
