    Even though a lot of the violence happens in the brightly vivid dreamscape, there is still a sense of menace and mystery surrounding the shadowy woman that has brought Stetson and Finch together. Slumber #2 does fantastic at accelerating the plot and maintaining a sickly dark humor that manages to charm the reader. I'm convince that this comic isn't going to be for everyone, but for those who have historically enjoyed characters like John Constantine or the antics of Invader Zim, with a stomach for the viscera, you're going to have a grand time in the playground Smith and Cardinali have cultivated.

    Vanessa Cardinali has a unique visual style that works perfectly with the story being told. The character designs and dreamscape imagery are beautifully done and visually interesting.  Read Full Review

    Still really enjoying this one. A bombastic, gruesome time done superbly.

    A bit tropey, but plays the cards well.
    Best part is the characterization, with some really strong dialogue.
    Love the use of banter between the narration and character bubbles. Vanessa Cardinali's artwork is honestly really great as well.
    The concept is still rather coasting by through genre conventions, its only issue 2 though; more definitions could be arriving later in the series.

    Solid issue. I'm really liking this series so far. Cool concept, even if the execution lacks a little.

    A solid start continues with this second issue, may not hit home quite like the first but very much expands and fills in a few gaps, showing us the incentive that drives Stetson to exterminate nightmares.

    The art is on form yet again, there is something in the simplicity and the vibrant colours that give the book a beautiful look. The story is gritty and dark and the art shows this, but in other panels it gives that lucid dream effect and it stands out gorgeously on the pages.

    The story itself is pretty solid, maybe a few filler moments in between, but that's all about scene setting and setting the pace. This issue adds enough details for the reader to piece together why Stetson is the way she is, but it also drops mor more
