    AiPT! - David Brooke Jun 19, 2013

    Artist Greg Smallwood continues a very controlled yet elaborate composition heavy style in this book. It's much appreciated, because how often have we seen people shooting and punching each other in a simple way? The composition of the page keeps you interested and the flow of the story always moving forward. Read Full Review

    Dream Thief#2 isn't quite as good as it's predecessor, but it's still enjoyable, and the art in particular is gorgeous. I'll certainly be sticking around for issue 3 (and not just because I've been assigned to.) Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jun 23, 2013

    One of the most impressive parts of Dream Thief #2 is that it manages to read as a done-in-one story, resolving the mystery of Jimmy Oliver's death and punishing all the guilty parties, while also forwarding the wider story of John Lincoln and his relation to that aboriginal mask. Indeed, the issue even finishes with a hint of what John will be facing next month in Dream Thief #3. Jai Nitz and Greg Smallwood do a brilliant job of balancing their micro and macro-narratives, delivering a satisfying issue that will read even better within the context of what's to come.

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Jun 24, 2013

    Jai Natz and Greg Smallwood do a remarkable job telling a modern day, unconventional superhero origin. Unlike the first issue where John Lincoln was confused and lost, Dream Thief #2 establishes a direction for the new hero, finding the person who robbed his girlfriend. With a great concept and a multi-layered protagonist, Dream Thief has the makings for a great series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jun 24, 2013

    The teaser for "Dream Thief" #3 shows Lincoln heading to Mississippi for a new adventure of vengeance. Given that the mini-series is only five issues, I'm hoping that the action and new setting slows down enough to give the reader more clues about the mythology of the world and Lincoln's internal state. Overall, though, "Dream Thief" is still a strong, distinctive read and Nitz and Smallwood make the second issue welcoming to new readers. Read Full Review

    Dark and dirty revenge appears to be the way of The Dream Thief. I like how all these seemingly random events appear to be connected. The hooks at the end of each issue are great and remind me of the classic TV show Quantum Leap in that everything from the previous adventure has been resolved and oh boy the next tale looks even better than the last one. This is series is a fun and bloody version Ill be tuning into next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Jun 19, 2013

    Overall, I highly recommend this budding series; it’s a story whose uniquely depressing stifle feels fresh, and whose twists (especially the one at the end of the issue) have already turned me into a regular reader. 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!
