There are 75 issues collected in ten volumes of THE SANDMAN to read before the launch of Neil Gaiman’s new bimonthly miniseries THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE arriving on October 30th. Are you overwhelmed by the thought? Don’t worry! This single installment of our 25 Days of Sandman will serve as a walk down memory lane or as a primer for those unfamiliar with the series.
We’re kicking off our 25 Days of Sandman with The Endless.
They’ll be appearing in Neil Gaiman’s highly anticipated new bi-monthly series THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE, so let’s get to know them!
The Endless are immortal depictions of seven abstract emotions and ideas, each has his/her own realm and responsibilities. They behave as siblings and wear a variety of appearances within the pages of THE SANDMAN.
Twenty-Five years ago THE SANDMAN entered our dreams. On October 30, 2013, Neil Gaiman returns to the iconic comic book series that launched his career with THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #1. It’s a big milestone – a quarter century - and to commemorate the occasion we’re bringing you ‘25 Days of Sandman.’
When it comes to defying expectations, look no further than Vertigo.
A mature readers imprint of DC Comics, Vertigo has long upheld a standard of mind-bendingly awesome storytelling with such award-winning classics like V for Vendetta, Hellblazer, Preacher, 100 Bullets, Fables, Y: The Last Man, Neil Gaiman's Sandman (all of which easily rank as some of our favorite comic series of all time), and so much more.
Earlier this week, Entertainment Weely revealed the first page of interior art from Neil Gaiman's THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE.
Today, at the celabratory Sandman 25th Anniversary and Beyond panel with special guests Neil Gaiman, JH Williams, III, Dave McKean (who's cover to THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #1 was also revealed at EW) and more, gathered to discuss the groundbreaking series and what's in store for this Fall's new miniseries featuring Morpheus, the King of Dreams.
This year, DC Comics, Vertigo and MAD Magazine will be taking Comic-Con programming by storm with well over a dozen distinctly exciting panel presentations. That's a lot to stay on top of, and even if you're at the show, chances are you're not going to catch them all. But never fear, we'll be bringing the panels to you as part of our Con Away From Con coverage, right here on DCComics.com.
