CBR is reporting that the bi-monthly The Sandman: Overture #2 has been delayed from December 2013 until February 2014. Given the outstanding quality of the first issue in the series, this just makes the wait all the more painful.
The Sandman: Overture #1 debuted at #8 in the October sales charts, with estimated sales of over 93,000 copies, and marking a return to the Top 10 for Vertigo. It met to massive critical acclaim, and thanks to writer Neil Gaiman‘s profile, achieved a small measure of mainstream success as well. When reviewing the book, we have it 10/10, calling it a “wonderful place where art and storytelling co-mixes with waking dreams, vividly bringing back to life a modern classic in a way that exceeds expectations.”
With gorgeous art by J.H. Williams III, this is essential reading for any self-respecting comics aficionado.
