It’s been 25 years since the New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman flipped the comics universe upside-down with The Sandman. Now, DC and sculptor Dave Cortes collaborate to produce this incarnation of the famed figure from the Vertigo Comics prequel series The Sandman: Overture. The design on Dream of the Endless is lush, and this black-robed vision is over 11 inches tall. Shown morosely and contemplatively making his way down a set of stairs leading into the infinite, the Sandman protagonist will inspire melancholic reflection and spark curiosity alike amidst the other prized pieces of your collection. Don’t let him wander too far off into the darkness.
Despite their popularity and massive critical acclaim, Vertigo characters don’t usually get their due as action figures, statues or any other such merch, but at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, you could at least get your hands on a brand new rendering of DEATH.
Some envision Death as a grim reaper or dark angel to be feared. But as created by Neil Gaiman for DC Comics’ line of Vertigo comics, the Sandman`s older sister is pretty, perky and always gets the job done. She’s been around since the beginning of time and is exactly the kind of girl you’d want to follow into the unknown. Our 8” figure of Death wears her trademark ankh necklace and comes with a skull-themed display base. The dioramic window box packaging and separate shipper box are dressed with artwork commissioned by Vertigo artist Jill Thompson.
