COMICS: Dave McKean's Variant Cover & Interior Art For SANDMAN: OVERTURE #1 Revealed

Fans have been awaiting Neil Gaiman's return to the character of Morpheus for many years now, and after the jump you can see Dave McKean's (the only artist to work on the covers of all original 75 issues) variant cover, and the first page of interior artwork from J.H. Williams III.

Says Gaiman of once again working with McKean:

“There is something special about Dave McKean that makes it feel real. I get the same thrill I got 25 years ago seeing his covers…”

Sandman: Overture #1 will be with us in October, and Gaiman, McKean and former Sandman artist Sam Keith will be joined by new artist J.H. Williams III at SDCC this Saturday for the 25th anniversary panel (at 3:15 p.m. in Room 6DE).

Is that first page the origins of Earth? Are we sure that we're not getting a Daniel/Morpheus story that fits into the New 52, whilst also serving as a Prequel to Preludes and Nocturnes?
