UPDATE: Neil Gaiman has responded on Tumblr to a fan's question regarding the delay for "Sandman: Overture" #2, now slated for a Feb. 26 release.

"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."
