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 Absolute edition will include the all six issues of the landmark VERTIGO series, the artist edition, over 40 pages of variant covers by artist Dave McKean, J.H. Williams and more, special behing-the-scenes features, an extensive sketchbook section from J.H. Williams, the complete script for issue #1 and interviews with the creative team.

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.
