Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN first changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman’s legendary series is back in a deluxe hard-cover 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, wide-screen 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.

“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
“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
