As they fade from the world's consciousness, Nurse Nikki's support group of marginalized myths and monsters gathers to discuss their shared crisis and forge a path to their former glory. When they decide that the best way to reclaim their power in the minds of men is to take to the streets to party, the motley parade of spirits, demons, and legends provokes an unimaginable existential hangover.

    The issue is packed with ideas from the fight to retain one's identity in their twilight to the LGBTQ community's embrace of monsters as mascots. Read Full Review

    It's not as epic as some of this series, but it's one of the most intriguing concepts in the story. Read Full Review

    Of the Sandman Universe titles, The Dreaming is the one with the closest ties to Gaiman's Sandman. But it is telling a new story that sometimes recaptures the essence of the the earlier series, but also forges ahead into a new direction. This issue gives us a nice taste of the past before the story forges ahead again. Read Full Review

    After a couple of rough issues of the main series where it became unreadable to me, this was a welcome diversion and reminder of why I like The Dreaming. Spurrier's story is solid if familiar and its execution is done well to get us interested if not caring for them directly over just a few pages. Dani's artwork is fantastic throughout with some really nice takes on the characters that has me quite enjoying Nikki in particular in both her forms but just the group in general as well. Definitely a nicely done book and one that I wish we had a little more of at times. Read Full Review
