Reviews

"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 review)

"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
