    1. Also the artwork is weirdly blurred in the Overture PDF. (Weird because the text is sharp; it’s only the pictures that look out of focus). I have a physical copy from the library and J.H. Williams’ art is gorgeous.


  1. So far, Sandman: Overture is the only one I’ve read (and I bought my own hardcopy, so issues with the PDF don’t matter). It is, definitely, rather gorgeous – and it’s a strong addition to the Sandman series, too; it ties in to all sorts of things in the other stories, and manages to answer questions about them that I didn’t know I was asking. That’s pretty canny writing, at the very least.

    I’m not sure how well it stands alone – certainly not the ideal entry point to the series, I think – but if you’re a Sandman fan, the chances are you will like this a lot. I know I did.
