Jim Lee The Sandman: Overture #1 Alternate Cover Original Art Cover (Vertigo, 2013). This stunning art was created by DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund-branded variant cover for this issue, available on a limited basis to retailers joining the CBLDF. The book comes 25 years after the Neil Gaiman series began in 1989. The main covers for the issue were done by J. H. Williams III and long-time Sandman cover artist Dave McKean. The black and white beauty was done in graphite, ink, and white paint by Lee who signed the piece, as did Gaiman, who has inscribed at bottom left, "Sweet dreams". It's 11" x 17" and in Excellent condition.
