As the second year of the Sandman Universe begins, the sentient algorithm known as Wan is now the acknowledged lord of Dream's realm, and unquestioned ruler of all his subjects. So it's a huge problem that Wan is completely insane, and more than capable of wiping out all life in the Dreaming. The question becomes: What can Abel, the only one who knows Wan's secret, do about it? And what must he do to poor Matthew the Raven to put his plan into action? A new chapter in the history of the Dreaming begins here-find out why the AV Club says "If you're a fan of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, you need to be reading The Dreaming!"

    This is another fantastic issue in a fantastic series. The Sandman could ask for no more worthy a successor. Read Full Review

    It often feels like this series is a collection of chess pieces being moved around, but now they've been replaced by a system that doesn't have any use for them. Wan is a villain that has no idea they're a villain, and that might be one of the creepiest kinds. What happens when dreams themselves become obsolete? Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 12, 2019

    I'm definitely interested in where this arc will be going even if the foundational aspects of it aren't going to do much for me during a first read. I've had more than enough time with these types of books, going back to the first Sandman, to know that when you introduce for diverse characters like they do here, they'll all be useful eventually and you'll forget those starting points. Spurrier's more engaging as he shows us the Dreaming through what Matthew understands and why and both sides of the book are beautifully presented through Evely's artwork. A solid start to a new arc.

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Nov 17, 2019

    While this title is largely a fantasy story, The Dreaming #15 serves as a reminder that there is more than a little horror in its DNA. Spurrier's time on the title may be drawing to a close, but he has managed to make it a worthy continuation of Gaiman's Sandman mythos. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi Nov 15, 2019

    Like Cain, I love a mystery and I am excited to see where the mystery leads Matthew and the reader. Knowing this creative team I know it will be worth the wait and an incredible ride. Whether you are new to the Sandman Universe or not, I think The Dreaming #15 is worth picking up at your local comic book shop or whatever way you get comics. Read Full Review
