As the holidays arrive and the year comes to a close, we thought we’d take a look back at 2013 and commemorate some of the moments that really stood out in the world of DC Entertainment in a two-week DCComics.com series we’re calling “Ten Moments that Mattered.” Some of these moments were happy. Some were sad. They played out in the pages of our comics, on the big and small screen and in the halls of our office. However, all of them made a profound difference in the world of DC Comics and in the hearts and minds of our fans.
That's right, THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE commercial, featuring some of your favorite characters--Morpheus, Death and Merv Pumpkinhead--drawn by J.H. Williams, III, is currently running on cable channels and can also be seen on the Jumbotron in New York City's Times Square.
Check out some stills in the gallery above. Click here to see the full commercial with sound and watch the video footage from Times Square below!

Twenty-five years ago THE SANDMAN entered our dreams.
The New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman returns to the world of The Endless with a new story – THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE, with the first installment of the six-issue series hitting stores and available digitally today. The comic marks Gaiman’s first Sandman story in 10 years.
Halloween is just two days away, and all of us are looking forward to costuming up and hitting the streets to keep the world safe—er, we mean to get candy with our kids or attend one of the nearby Halloween parties. Yes, we love Halloween right here at the DC Entertainment office, which should be fairly obvious from this week’s “DC All Access.” But what we’re not big on is the idea that we need to wait until Thursday night for treats. So it’s fortunate that there are plenty of treats to be found this Wednesday…at your local comic shop.
Earlier this month we gave you an early look at our upcoming The Sandman: Overture Statue as part of Vertigo’s “25 Days of Sandman.” Produced by DC Collectibles and due in 2014, the statue is based off of the art of J.H. Williams III and is sculpted by Dave Cortes.
In less than two weeks, legendary writer Neil Gaiman returns to THE SANDMAN, the series that changed the landscape of modern comics twenty-five years ago.
THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #1 is the first chapter of a 6-issue limited, bimonthly series that explores (amongst much more) just what happened to Morpheus before he was captured in THE SANDMAN #1. Illustrated by J.H. Williams III, this highly anticipated inaugural issue lands in stores on October 30.
