On October 30th, 2013 Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III released the first issue in their prequel miniseries, The Sandman: Overture. To say expectations were high is an understatement. This was one of the most heavily promoted comics of the year. Yet, The Sandman: Overture #1 was a trippy delight, featuring gorgeous imagery lushly illustrated by Williams that sets a new high water mark not only for The Sandman, but for all of comics.
