Review Winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story "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.com About the Author Creator of THE SANDMAN and one of comics' most accomplished writers, Neil Gaiman is also the New York Times best-selling author of the novels Anansi Boys, American Gods, Stardust and Coraline, as well as the short story collections M Is for Magic and Smoke and Mirrors and the multimedia creation Neverwhere.
