Summary
"A #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN first changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman's legendary series is back--now in paperback for the first time ever! 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. From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE will feature cameo appearances by fan-favourite characters such as the Corinthian, Merv Pumpkinhead and, of course, the Dream King's siblings: Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny. Collects SANDMAN: OVERTURE #1-6"--
