Who exactly are the Dream Police? Where do they come from? How are prospective officers chosen? Those seem like fairly straightforward questions...except that they are cover for a secret that goes back to the beginnings of civilization, a secret that must be protected at all costs, especially from the inquiries of Lieutenant Detective Joe Thursday. Joe has always been a loyal member of the Dream Police...but when his instincts as a cop tell him that the people he's working for are aligning against him, how far will he go to find the truth about them?

    Despite discovering next to nothing about what exactly is going on in the Dreamscape the issue builds the mystery in a masterful way. Each issue has laid up more secrets, false memories and ominous messages to build a truly paranoia filled story. Joe continues to become more and more desperate as his search for answers leads only to more questions, and his next destination ever more perilous than anywhere else he has been yet.

    As Dream Police goes on, it seems to be slowing down a bit. The earlier issues felt like they had more of a sense of progress than the past couple, and it seems like the plot is moving in half-steps. It's still engaging and entertaining, but the pacing leaves a small something to be desired. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, this sort of issue is typical foreshadowing to a rushed and quick finish to a story arc and the death of a series. Hopefully it was a fluke and the plot will continue to hold strong to the ideas JMS and Kotian have no doubt put together, but I wont count on it. Read Full Review
