    Love the art in this book. Mostly neutral earth tones, but sliced wide open by ashes of neon pink and red always coinciding with the anticipation of danger. Badass. It feels like Edmondson and Novosadov are just cracking our skulls open and running their ngers over the grooves in our temporal lobes. I feel like by the sixth issue of this Im going to be completely mindfucked. Get the hazmat suits, babies, clean ups gonna be a bitch. Read Full Review

    The Dream Merchant #1 presented a lot to live up to. The first issue was a tremendously interesting endeavour and great things were to be expected following such a successful introduction. The latest issue proves that this was no fluke, and the creative team have really put a lot of effort into devising the plot and crafting a story that, thus far, is playing out spectacularly from month to month.

    The Dream Merchant is a great book and Edmondson takes the material and presents it with respect to the reader. It's a story that feels complicated but reads clearly and defined. This is one head-trip you are going to want to take. Read Full Review

    This second issue has really set up a nice miniseries with the plot. The next four issues will only dig deeper into Winslow’s dreams. I am interested to see how he controls his dreams. The other world factor just adds more elements and I hope that we at least get a glance into it and how it works. Read Full Review

    However, the original art style and pleasant prose style of "The Dream Merchant" #2 doesn't entirely excuse its uneven pacing and derivative characterization and plot so far. Perhaps in future issues, these aspects of the writing will catch up to the art. Read Full Review

    The Dream Merchant #2 still hasnt hit all the marks just yet, but Edmondsons creative vision when it comes to philosophical discourse and story development is admirable. Read Full Review

    For as much as author Nate Edmondson has his characters talk about the dream stuff, the only moment that made my ears perk up were the two pages featuring an investigator tracking down the escaped duo. Those pages felt exciting and tense, whereas the rest were full of a lot of information that was hard to digest. Winslow does nothing but ask question after question, showing none of his personality or giving us a reason to care about what he's learning or what comes next. Read Full Review
