Sandman Overture #2 Delayed Until End of February!
Patience Sandman fans! It was announced this past week by DC that orders for Sandman Overture #2 have been cancelled and the issue will be resolicited for a February 26 release date. Neil Gaiman took the bullet for this delay saying “I understand your disappointment and sympathise. J.H. Williams III and I are both really sorry about the delay. It’s unprofessional, and is mostly due to the giant signing tour I was on from June, and me not getting script written on the tour, with knock-on effects. We’re hoping it’ll be the only delay though”!
