The Sandman: Overture #1


Ladies and gentlemen, the Lord of Dreams has returned!

After having finished reading all of the Sandman trades, both the originals and the remastered ones, I don’t think I could have asked for a more fantastic ending. Being pretty young, I’m not an original fan of The Sandman, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying what definitely deserves to be called a masterpiece.

Or in the case of series protagonist Forever Carlyle, a not so human being. Hmm, yeah, I think that’s a fair assessment. Continue reading

So… Death has a daughter now?

Not gonna’ lie, the first three or so pages of this comic are simply beautiful. They play out like a film with exposition through narration, which really doesn’t reveal anything about the plot, but it does set the tone for what is to come.

Truth be told, I haven’t read any of DeConnick’s previous work before reading this issue, so this probably won’t be the most reliable of reviews, but I’ll do the best I can. Continue reading
