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
