"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.

The Sandman series was never meant for the simple comics reader, only interested in linear plotlines and stunning escapades (though it has both in spades depending on your viewpoint), and the series overture is no exception. We enter the story expecting to discover the precursory events to Morpheus' capture (and escape) whech are outlined in Preludes and Nocturnes, but we get another story entirely. Sure, the events are touched on, but the central story itself is much more esoteric and shouldn't really be viewed as a simple cause-and-effect. We see Morpheus set out on a journey, we see him fail and win, and we see his rediscover aspects of the universe that he may well have chosen to forget. Possibly more importantly for the Sandman universe, we are finally introduced to the parents of the Endless - Time and Night. For those of us who read Catherine Webb's duopoly Timekeepers and Waywalkers there's some interesting similarities (some of which she mat have picked up from Neil's original Sandman, which he seems to now be reflecting back at her), but the duo seem to be a good fit as relatively omnipotent (and uninterested in reality) god-like beings. The story itself was a little bit strange (even for me), but J.H. William's artwork was so stunning that I can't wait to dive back in again and see what the Dreaming produces a second time around. After re-reading the originals again of course! ( )

I had really high expectations for this book considering that the original Sandman series completely changed my life as a comics devouring teen. Overture is exactly what I wanted from a visit back to the world of Dream - a huge intergalactic, metaphysical, allegorical, apocalyptic story, jaw dropping artwork, multiple ah-ha moments that fill in the tiny narrative gaps in the original series, cats and Dream being...well...Dream. This is a book that requires multiple readings and I already can't wait to read it again. ( )

And a glorious and great nomination for the 2016 Hugo nominations for Graphic Novel goes to: Sandman!

To say that this is a either a coda or a prequel, or both, is to entirely miss the point.
The fact is, there's a ton of new material, a haunting story, and some truly exemplary artwork suffusing these pages.

I think this is easily the work of love that the series always wanted to be, not that it wasn't already a gorgeous work of art. It's this one that slams it's fist into our guts and blows our minds. Did you ever want to see Dream save the universe or talk with his momma and poppa? lol this was a totally awesome comic, from start to finish, and what a great payoff! To think I might feel a bit of pity for Desire! To think I might actually feel horror and sorrow for the monster that Death, poor, beautiful Death, was becoming.

I've now read three of the five nominees for Graphic Novel Hugos for this year, and barring some grand upset through Full Frontal Nerdity or The Devine, Sandman is easily, on it's own merits and not even touching upon any of the rest of the grand series, the best choice, and well worth any other accolades and word of mouth thrillers out there. :)

What a grand circle this was! :)

This is, aesthetically, my favorite Sandman volume, I think. The story could be a little on the nose, and Dream is just kind of a slow-moving tragedy, it seems, but the visuals! Wow! Two sets of fold-out pages. Art that was worth looking at!

I don't just mean it was pretty, either. My big sticking point with graphic novels, the thing that takes them from very good or excellent into amazingly fantastic is how much they take advantage of the visual medium to tell the story alongside the words. Or at least, how much detail is there to pore over, spotting new things with each sweep of your eyes? This had that. The city of stars! The realm of night! The realm of time! All the different aspects of Dream (and Death, too; we saw a lot more different renderings of her than ever before as well)!

It's an interesting story, bittersweet with the knowledge that you know where Dream is going next, and next, and next. It's also a fantastic visual feast. ( )

Fantastic work. As good as anything in the original run. The drawings are insane, haven't seen anything quite like this. ( )

For Karen Berger. You made it happen.
And for the SANDMAN periodical editorial team, who scribbled down my corrections and caught up with me in strange places between 1988 and 2015: Art Young, Tom Peyer, Alisa Kwitney, Lisa Aufenanger, Shelly Bond, Jenny Lee, and Shelly Bond again.
You were the dream team, and you did your work in the shadows. I'm grateful. - Neil
I dedicate the work in this book to my ever-enchanting wife, Wendy Williams. Many have little understanding that such a thing as SANDMAN: OVERTURE could not possibly exist as you see it here without her.
She is the stuff of dreams. - J.H.
