Neil Gaiman returns to his award-winning creation after seventeen years away with his first new THE SANDMAN series with renowned artist J.H. Williams III, now collected in an Absolute Edition! Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN first changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman's legendary series is back in a massive slipcased hardcover! This new edition will include sketches, interviews, design concepts and other never-before-seen bonus material. 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 J.H. 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 features 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.

Newspapers & Magazines
Winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story "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."
