Trying to describe this book seems a folly to me, as I review this, the last issue If you haven't been reading it, nothing I can say is likely to sway you now. And if you have been reading it, you are probably - like me - an avid fan of the creators involved and well aware of how indescribably good this book has been.
No words I write can do justice to the glory of this series. If you have yet to experience the wonder that is The Sandman, speed thee hence to the closest library or bookshop and correct that misfortune at once. Because if you haven't read the original series, nothing I can say about Overture will be of any help to you. Except, perhaps, this.
Neil Gaiman, J.H. Williams III and Dave Stewart have crafted the perfect conclusion to The Sandman. As well as the perfect beginning. And if that doesn't make sense to you, believe me when I say that it is a most worthy continuation of the original saga, wherever one places it.
