A #1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story! Neil Gaiman's The Sandman set the standard for mature, lyrical fantasy in the modern comics era. This 30th Anniversary edition of The Sandman Vol. 0: Overture is a lush, epic look at The Sandman's origin story.
The Sandman: Overture heralded 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 this tale featuring Morpheus.
From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, The Sandman Vol. 0: 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.
Neil Gaiman further explores world of The Sandman with events that occurred even before The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes.
