    The story moves more like a spiral than an arc, but is winding its to a new paradigm. A delightful tale to follow. Read Full Review

    Another great chapter in a series that's visually stunning while spinning an arresting story about stories. It's a series where the impossible is ordinary and your imagination can thrive. Read Full Review

    Narrative ambition aside, The Dreaming is without a doubt an appreciated addition to the Sandman universe, and it's worth the effort to parse it all out. Read Full Review

    This title continues to be the biggest mindbender in the DC stables, taking us further down the bunny hole with every issue as the search for Dream gets more complicated and the Dreaming itself starts to unravel. Read Full Review

    While there's a neat bit at the end with Abel and what's possibly going on with Cain, showing us their respective houses and talking of other houses out there in the world, the other side of the book with Dora, Matthew, and Balam drags things down more than it should have. There are neat moments to it, no doubt, and it's beautifully illustrated, but the whole thing just left me frustrated as it was more complicated than it needed to be. These attempts work sometimes and I've admired it like crazy when it does, but more often than not it falls short like it does here and it becomes unsatisfying. Read Full Review

    Often when a classic title is revived, it ends in disappointment, failing to live up to the original. However, The Dreaming is a rare exception that feels like a worthy successor to Neil Gaiman's original Sandman series. I look forward to seeing where the quest to find Dream leads. Read Full Review

    Allusion after allusion abounds in "Empty Shells" and in much of the contemporary titles in the Sandman Universe. The only question is " and maybe the only drawback to this issue " is there such a thing as too much intertextuality? Is it possible to reach a saturation point when it comes to literary or mythological references? We don't know the answers to this yet, but THE DREAMING and the Sandman Universe are pushing the boundaries and posing these queries with astounding results in each issue. Read Full Review
