Guest NCBD Picks by Blake Northcott

My name is Blake Northcott, and I have a comic book addiction.

And Image Comics is to blame.

It seems like every Wednesday, an Image title forces me to jump in my car and race to the comic book store, shotgunning Red Bulls while ignoring stoplights and pedestrians along the way. The action/drama set in an all-too-realistic dystopian future, Lazarus, is on my pull list. Breakthrough artist of the year Jon “˜Roc’ Upchurch makes newcomer Rat Queens a monthly must-read. Matt Fraction’s Sex Criminals is one of the most unique books I’ve read in years. And Mark Millar’s Jupiter’s Legacy has become a personal obsession (with issue #3 being the single best issue of any comic I’ve read in 2013).

With that, here’s my 3 hottest New Comic Book Day picks for October 30, 2013.

Sandman by J.H. Williams III banner

Vertigo Comics has released another look at Neil Gaiman‘s upcoming Sandman prequel, titled Sandman: Overture. Check out the preview here below.

During last July’s Comic-Con in San Diego, the DC imprint announced the prequel miniseries and gave a first look at the cover. J.H. Williams III will be doing the interior art for the miniseries, while Williams along with long-time Sandman cover artist Dave McKean, will provide the covers. At the time of the announcement, Gaiman revealed that he always had another Sandman story up his sleeve and that this new tale would be about the events that led up to Morpheus being captured (which is the premise of Sandman #1).

The Sandman: Book of Dreams

Author Clive Barker, whose books launched the Hellraiser and Candyman film franchises, is also an accomplished artist. His artwork has accompanied several of his books, like Thief Of Always and the Abarat series.

Today, Barker posted a photo of a painting he did called “Death of the Endless” based on the character Death from Neil Gaiman‘s popular comic book series, The Sandman. A black and white version of this painting was the frontispiece for the 1996 short-story anthology novel, The Sandman: Book of Dreams.

Check out the full-color version of the painting here below.

Jill Thompson The Sandman movie pitch production art

Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman comic book series is, much like Watchman, considered to be one of those “unfilmable” properties, which might explain why we haven’t seen a big screen adaptation of it. While fans tend to agree that the propriety might be better off on the small screen, which Geoff Johns said was still happening as of a year ago, there was a time when Gaiman pitched a Sandman movie to Warner Bros. Part of that pitch included concept art provided by Jill Thompson, whose previously worked on the comic book as well as many other series like Wonder Woman, The Invisibles, and Fables.

Thompson recently put up for sale 27 pieces of Sandman movie concept art. Check them out here below.
