Vertigo continues its slow unveiling of details for Neil Gaiman's return to the character that made him a comic shop powerhouse, releasing the first page from "Sandman: Overture" by artist J.H. Williams III. Beyond a first look inside the anticipated miniseries, Vertigo also debuted the variant cover for the first issue created by Dave McKean, the only artist to create covers for the original series' full 75-issue run.

"There is something special about Dave McKean that makes it feel real,” Gaiman told EW about the feeling he gets seeing the artist return to the character. "I get the same thrill I got 25 years ago seeing his covers…"

Gaiman, Williams, McKean and original "Sandman" artist Sam Keith will all be at Comic-Con International in San Diego as part of Saturday's panel (3:15 PM in Room 6DE) celebrating the 25th anniversary of the legendary comic.
