    Wait !
    Does this means part 1 is already out ?
    When did that happen ?

    No, just the cover as linked in the post. They put them out far in advance usually. I think #1 hits stores October 30.

    So does this mean he’s still doing art for the series? I wasn’t sure after what happened with Batwoman.

    Even if this weren’t The Sandman, I’d want it because of the cover art alone.

    Yes, Williams mentioned his work for Sandman goes unchanged.

    The cover of Sandman: Overture shown is by J.H. Williams III, not Dave McKean.

    Crap, thank you for telling me. It wasn’t explicit where I found it and this one looks so much like McKean’s first one and not at all like Williams’ first one.
