The World's End pub is a place where ales and tales flow freely. A place where the netherfolk gather to spin stories and mark time between realities. But a blight has come to the Worlds' End pub, and as the search for Dream of the Endless nears its end, our plucky hunters must confront the saddest thing of all: a fable that can't stop fading. Meanwhile, the new Lord of the Dreaming, chafing against its unwanted throne, gropes for answers-and endings...

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jul 3, 2019

    Any trepidation about the Sandman Universe has now been assuaged several times over. Spurrier and Evely have worked together to continue Gaiman's work in a truly 2019 way that appeals to newcomers to the universe and fulfills the vets. While I still think you'll get the most by waiting for the trade, if you can get a hold of The Dreaming #11, it'll be more than worth your time. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Christina Hamlet Sep 16, 2019

    Several questions remain. Why did the narrators set fire to the inn and distract the occupants? Are they independent agents, or working for someone else? If so, who? Who are the two other narrators and how is it possible that Dora and Matthew know one of them? Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jul 6, 2019

    VerdictOf the Sandman Universe titles, The Dreaming is my favourite, as it brings back a lot of the elements I enjoyed from Gaiman's Sandman series, but also manage to move the story forward. The Dreaming serves as a worthy successor to Gaiman's masterpiece. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 9, 2019

    I'm not dropping the series but I'm feeling very frustrated by both it and myself with the difficulties that come from the lettering work here. I know why it's done and it's always been a part of comics, and especially things from Vertigo, but it's been rare that I've found almost entire books unreadable because of it. There's good stuff in here and some gorgeous artwork so it's definitely worthwhile but those with a bit better eye toward handling the lettering will get more out of it. Read Full Review
