Been meaning to post this for a bit: The astonishing J.H. Williams III’s most beautiful 2-page spread yet from the unbeatable “Sandman: Overture.” Both he and the great Neil Gaiman are really at the top of their respective forms on this one and it’s such a treat to read something with so many characters I’ve adored my whole adult life returning just as I remember them. One wonderful thing Gaiman was able to do on “The Sandman” was create a world in which switching artists every sixish issues made perfect sense—our hero, after all, appeared slightly differently to everyone who saw him. But it was always such an incredible treat when an artist I personally liked, such as P. Craig Russell or Marc Hempel or Colleen Doran, got to draw him. Williams is my favorite artist working—he could be working on an X-Force story written by somebody’s dog and I’d still read it. So having him and Gaiman working on my single favorite comics series is the kind of treat I never expected.
