Many comic retailers have worried about how they’ll continue momentum started with the release of Sandman: Overture after it was announced issue two would be delayed until late February. Mission: Comics and Art, 3520 20th Street in San Francisco, has an answer. The shop will be hosting a group art show dedicated to the 25th Anniversary of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. More than two dozen artists will be showcasing their artistic interpretation of Gaiman’s groundbreaking comic book series. The show, curated by Daisy Church, will kickoff with an opening reception on January 18, 2014 at 7 p.m. The art will be featured in the store’s gallery space until February 15. There’s a complete list of participating artists at sandmanartshow.tumblr.com.
This seems like a good opportunity to remind folks in the bay area that the Cartoon Art Museum, 655 Mission Street in San Francisco, has been hosting a Sandman exhibition that runs until March 16.
