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!
Creator of THE SANDMAN and one of comics' most accomplished writers, Neil Gaiman is also the New York Times best-selling author of the novels Anansi Boys, American Gods, Stardust and Coraline, as well as the short story collections M Is for Magic and Smoke and Mirrors and the multimedia creation Neverwhere. He also co-wrote the Jim Henson Productions film MirrorMask with longtime collaborator Dave McKean, illustrator of the Gaiman-written graphic novels MR. PUNCH, Violent Cases and BLACK ORCHID. Among his many awards are the Hugo, the Nebula, the Eisner, the Harvey, the Bram Stoker and the World Fantasy Award. Originally from England, Gaiman now lives in the United States.
"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
"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
