The Sandman: Overture Deluxe Edition

#1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller and winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story! Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN first changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman's legendary series is back in a deluxe 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 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 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.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 30, 2015 – Gaiman (The Ocean at the End of the Lane) and Williams (Batwoman) revisit the dark world of the Endless in this splendid prequel. Morpheus, the manifestation and master of dreams, has found himself embroiled in a galaxy-spanning crisis: a sentient star has lost its mind, and its madness threatens to unravel the universe. With the help of an earnest young alien girl and an alternate, feline form of himself, he sets out on a journey to set things right. Williams's dizzyingly surreal work is perfectly paired with Gaiman's famed wild flights of fancy. Infinitely adaptable, Williams's dazzling art recalls everyone from Alphonse Mucha to Jack Kirby. Gaiman is in fine form as well it is a true pleasure to watch him plumb the depths of weirdness that made Sandman a classic. This is a shining addition to a beloved series.

Crazy insane but beautiful

A major collaboration of talented artists has produced a work of Art for the imagination. It is dazzling to the brain even more than to the eyes! I congratulate whoever worked on the digital version for Apple iBooks, too.
