When Vertigo announced last year that Neil Gaiman would be returning to the world of The Endless finish the untold story of how Morpheus was imprisoned by a mere human at the beginning of 'The Sandman,' fans the world over rejoiced. On April 30th, 2014 the saga continues with the third issue of this six-part miniseries. HitFix was fortunate enough to get an exclusive first look at the exquisite cover art for 'The Sandman: Overture #3' by J.H. Williams, III.

As an added bonus, a tantalizing pinch of the plot from Vertigo: "The armies of the night are gathering. The universe is beginning its final dance. Morpheus, far from home, walks the path of madness, accompanied only by himself."
