Neil Gaiman fans were treated to his long awaited return to The Sandman in October with “Sandman Overture” #1, which received glowing critical reception. Initially, the book was scheduled to have a new issue released every two months, with a special edition of the previous month’s issue coming out in between those months.
Unfortunately, those expecting another instalment before the New Year will be disappointed as “Sandman Overture” #2 has been delayed until February. Yikes. Who is going to fill my dreams now?
DC Comics have informed retailers that they can re-order the second issue for February. All December orders have been cancelled.
Gaiman chimed in with a reply about the delay, “Sure. I understand your disappointment and sympathise. We’re 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.”
Got to give the man credit for being honest.
