    With The Dreaming #19 being the final issue of the issue, it's hardly an ideal jumping on point for new readers. But, if you haven't been reading this series, I urge you to seek out the back issues or at least read the trade paperbacks when they come out. This story has proven to be a worthy continuation of Gaiman's Sandman story, and I look forward to reading its concluding chapter next month. Read Full Review

    While the book offers up some interesting ideas it also comes at a point where I've really struggled hard over the last few issues to even get past the lettering in the book in order to understand what's going on. We've had some great artwork throughout the run and this issue is no exception but it's also piling up close to that realm where so much is going on that it's all becoming noise at this point. There are pieces that I like but the flow of it as a whole simply leaves me anxious to see it done so I can close out this chapter of it and lament for the lack of Dreaming that will be in my life.
