Neil Gaiman’s return to Sandman is part of DC Entertainment’s subtle relaunch of its imprint, Vertigo, along with five other new series to be released by the end of 2013.
Gaiman’s prequel to his original 75-issue series has been retitled from Sandman Zero to The Sandman:Overture.
Fans can get their hands on the six-issue mini-series starting October 30.
“Neil Gaiman returning to the lush, evocative world he created with Sandman is a literary event,” Diane Nelson, DC Entertainment president, said. “We’re honored to have Neil back for a story only he and J.H. can tell. It’s a testament to the lasting power of Vertigo, Sandman and Neil’s amazing creativity. “
Artist J.H. Williams will illustrate The Sandman:Overture. He has previously worked with other well-known writers, including Alan Moore.
“Sandman” began in the late 80s but was picked-up by Vertigo in 1993 and became one of its biggest successes.
