DC Comics Cancels All Orders for Sandman: Overture Gallery Edition – For Now

JH Williams III hasn't had that much luck with DC Comics of late. There was the thing with the Batwoman marriage. There was the thing with the Sideways Promethea. There was the thing with Promethea in Justice League of America.

And now there's the thing with the Sandman: Overture Gallery Edition Hardcover. It was meant to come out a couple of weeks ago. But it didn't. And now it seems that it won't be for quite some time. The Graphitti website says November, but that's unlikely. All current orders made by comic retailers have been cancelled, ahead of the volume being resolicited. At some point.

J.H. Williams III shows off his artistic range and skills in the pages of the new Gallery Edition of THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE, written by Neil Gaiman. Williams' original art for the entire book has been meticulously scanned at high resolution for its presentation in this large-format, Smythe-sewn hardcover edition. The numerous double-page spreads are displayed as never before with minimal gutter interference, thanks to the lie-flat feature of these books. Though Williams' art will be shown without lettering, this book will also include scaled-down reproductions of the final lettered and colored pages for those who wish to read the story.

Graphitti Designs' Gallery Editions replicate the look, feel and attitude of the original artwork. Every page is reproduced at full board size on heavy paper stock to provide fans and collectors with museum-quality reproductions that are unobtainable from any other source.

Williams' original art for this book is a joy to behold. Numerous art styles and techniques ranging from pen and ink to gray tonal washes to full-color paintings are on display for the first time in all their varied glory. In Shops: TBD SRP: $150.00
