    Like Elric: The Ruby Throne before it, Elric: The Dreaming City is a worthy adaptation of Michael Moorcock's work and a riveting read on its own terms. Fantasy fans will want to check this one out, whether or not they're familiar with the original novels. Read Full Review

The story has a swashbuckling fantasy feel that gives off strong Robert E. Howard vibes, and its a heck of a lot of fun to read. Read Full Review

    "Elric: The Dreaming City" #1 is an excellent adaptation of the 60 year old novelette, feeling appropriately grand and consequential, but lacks the novelty or simplicity to attract newcomers. Those who find themselves confused but enjoying the story should likely check out the preceding volumes before plunging further. Read Full Review
