The Sandman Overture – More Artwork Revealed


A little over two weeks ago, the first cover art was revealed for Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman prequel series, drawn by J. H. Williams III.

This week sees the reveal of the comic’s first page, also drawn by Williams, along with an alternative, darker cover design by original Sandman cover artist, Dave McKean.


Said Sandman writer Neil Gaiman of McKean’s artwork: 

“There is something special about Dave McKean that makes it feel real….I get the same thrill I got 25 years ago seeing his covers…”


Though the first page has no text, both pieces of art offer interesting hints at what we can expect from The Sandman: Overture series, especially to fans of Gaiman’s work.
