    And it's all ending next issue! Say it ain't so! Let's call a spade a spade. This comic isn't action packed or filled with explosions. It's a crime comic plain and simple, but it's paced impeccably, the art is always interesting and there's a strong development on all friends every single issue. It'll be sad to see this book go, but maybe it'll get an ongoing if we're lucky. If not, but Nitz and Smallwood have shown they are future powerhouses in the comic book industry. The bottom line is there is some master class storytelling going on here and you'd be a fool to miss in on it. Read Full Review

    It's just… cool. That's the word I keep coming back to, and it's hard to really nail that on your first try like Nitz and Smallwood have. There's a fine line there – if you try too hard, you just come off as lame and stupid like Gambit. But if you manage to ride that line and keep it from becoming obnoxious and cloying, you make fans of your readers. Dream Thief has done that for me. Read Full Review

    Even though this issue suspiciously taps into Man's love affair with (now televised) card games, Dream Thief #4 exemplifies what makes this series so good: a dark yet absurd premise, a robust cast of characters and a continuous barrage of surprises that always keeps me coming back. Dream Thief's final repose next issue is geared up to be bittersweet and fitful, and I for one can't wait for the rude awakening. Read Full Review

    With new comics being optioned for TV and movie deals with just a few issues being released, I would not be surprised if Dream Thief wont be coming to a screen near you in the future. The pacing and visuals by Nitz and Smallwood have already painted the perfect picture ready for adaptation if they so desire. The pacing of each issue has been singular and yet connects to the previous chapters. The panelling is a breath of unbridled genius. Even the lies told in the story keep the reader captivated. I tend to like miniseries because I know there will be a beginning, middle and end to the story. With that said, I want this story to continue for a long time. Read Full Review

    I didn't hear about Dream Thief until after its completion, and man was I missing out! If you haven't read this series do yourself a favor and ebay that sum'bitch. I think the entire mini-series is going for $15 (including shipping) which is a steal in my opinion. Do NOT miss out on what will surely become one of next year's hottest comics!
