NY have revealed that as part of DC’s ongoing overhaul of its Vertigo imprint, the eagerly anticipated Sandman prequel by Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III will be entitled ‘The Sandman: Overture’ and will hit shelves in October.

According to The New York Times, the six-issue Sandman mini-series will be joined by several other titles, including “The Discipline” by Peter Milligan (“an erotic thriller about a woman at the centre of an eons-spanning shadow war”) and “Hinterland” by Ian Edginton (based in “a post-apocalyptic world in which creatures of myth and legend have returned”).

These new releases join such well-received recent additions as Astro City, Brother Lono and The Wake.

It seems that reports predicting Vertigo’s demise following the departure in March of founding editor Karen Berger were a little premature.

What do we make of this news, then?
