    Mike Dringenberg Sandman House Ad Original Art signed by Neil Gaiman (DC, 1988). The first image the comic world saw of Morpheus was this house ad that appeared some two months before Sandman #1 hit the stands. This haunting house ad ran in Action Comics Weekly #628, and likely other places as well. The published ad looks slightly different as in production they flipped the character's head to face the other way so that he was looking at his hand. The logo and both text pieces are later replacements created by a previous owner of the art. The art was created in ink and marker over graphite with white paint highlights on DC Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 17.5". Signed by both the artist Mike Dringenberg and creator/writer Neil Gaiman in the lower portion of the image area. The board is lightly toned, with some faint creases running across the middle image area. In Very Good condition.
