While most of us have been very occupied with the more major superhero movie news out of Marvel and DC, we haven’t forgotten about another DC project in development over at Warner Bros.: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Sandman,’ which has been in development for quite a while now. First announced late last year, it’s been a while since we’ve heard any news about the project, but Gordon-Levitt and writer David Goyer finally have an update for us.

Comics have seized center stage at the venerable British Library in London this summer in an exhibition celebrating the history of British comics and the work of British creators. Subtitled, 'Art and Anarchy in the UK', the Comics Unmasked exhibition places an emphasis on protest, outsider culture, and anti-authoritarian voices.

Curated by Adrian Edwards, Paul Gravett, and John Harris Dunning, Comics Unmasked draws heavily on the British Library's own collection to establish and define Britain's relationship to the comics art form -- stirring up nostalgia, scandal, and some surprising discoveries along the way. And Kieron Gillen's giant head.

The second issue of Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III's Vertigo series The Sandman: Overture hit comic shops and digital storefronts this week, despite reports that it would be out in February. The issue was originally slated for December.

Now, it appears as though the series' third issue won't be making its scheduled release next month, even though April 30 remains DC Comics' solicited release date. In an interview with CNN, Gaiman said issue three won't be coming out until sometime in July.

With the massive success of Gorillaz, the animated band he co-created with Blur frontman Damon Albarn, Tank Girl co-creator Jamie Hewlett arguably has one of the most identifiable art styles of any comics artist in the world.

Which is likely why the British Library in London has tapped him to to illustrate a huge banner for its new exhibit, "Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy in the UK," which kicks off May 2. Check out the piece used for the banner, which features a brass-knuckle wearing superheroine leaning against an alley wall, and another piece (which Hewlett is calling his second panel) after the jump.

Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s ‘Violent Cases’ Launched The Careers Of Two Comic Book Icons [Review]

violent cases 1

Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean have each earned a level of success that goes way beyond comics. Gaiman is practically a household name these days, to the point where even my grandmother is familiar with his work. Dave McKean’s art is known throughout the western world. But it doesn’t have much to do with comics. It’s the other stuff that’s gotten them where they are -- the prose novels, Doctor Who, children’s books, advertising, album covers, and film projects. There are plenty of people who know of Gaiman or McKean but don’t know anything about comics. Comics can only provide some fame, and the levels of notoriety that Gaiman and McKean have surpass the borders of our little area of popular culture. But it began with comics.

Specifically, It began with Violent Cases.

[UPDATED] Second Issue Of ‘The Sandman: Overture’ Delayed Until February 2014

Untitled-1

UPDATE (11/12/13]: Sandman: Overture writer Neil Gaiman has accepted the majority of blame for the delay. He wrote on his blog:
We’re both really sorry about the delay. It’s unprofessional, and is mostly due to the giant signing tour I was on from June, and me not getting script written on the tour, with knock-on effects. We’re hoping it’ll be the only delay though.
 

ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES:

From all indications, the first issue of Sandman: Overture, the much-anticipated return of writer Neil Gaiman to the character he co-created back in 1989, has been hugely successful. Drawn to great acclaim by JH Williams III, the issue came in at No. 8 on the October sales charts, giving Vertigo a rare top-ten book.

Which makes it all the more disappointing that the six-issue series won't be making its announced bimonthly schedule. ComicsAlliance has confirmed that issue #2, which was scheduled to come out in December, has been pushed back to February of next year.
