The recurring phantom of someone Detective Joe Thursday suspects may have been his former partner—despite the fact that no one else remembers him—leads Joe to start asking questions nobody should ask about the history of the Dream Police, and how they really came into existence. The deeper he goes, the more isolated he becomes, and the more dangerous his world becomes. How far will Joe go to find the truth? And will his partner Katie Black go with him...or turn against him?

    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Aug 27, 2014

    Part of the world building has clearly been the art, now if I am being honest, I wasn't a huge fan of how this book looked at the beginning, but it has slowly grown on me and has been really effective especially in this issue. I do still have some issues with the artists character work but the big full page panels and splash pages just look great and really goes to show that if you combine great writing with OK art then by falling in love with the characters, how they look isn't necessarily a huge problem.

    Dream Police #4 is a great issue that turns the story from a one man act into a story about multiple characters. The world and people in it continue to be great, and now that JMS can finally move on from showing us how the world works, the plot is progressing at a great rate. Mystery and thrills are abound, and it's definitely a comic worth picking up. Read Full Review

    An intriguing issue that delves into the mental frailties of Joe as he tries to remember Frank. In an unpredictable series set in a surreal world that hinges between an apparent Utopia and purgatory of the mind we are seeing the effect this secretive reality has on Joe. His paranoia is building as he struggles to know who to trust. A fascinating book that promises to keep us guessing throughout the remainder of the series. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Aug 27, 2014

    While issue four vastly improves on the product, I fret that readers won't be able to jump on at this point to understand the implications of the plot elements. Because it took so long to get its momentum, this arc of Dream Police will have lost its readers early on before the integral parts began to fit and become more entertaining. Read Full Review
