In the waking world, Ruin and the fallen cherub Jophiel have teamed up with the sorceress Heather After to try to pull Lindy out of the Dreaming, and home to her newborn daughter…but they’d better work fast. Lindy’s mind is rapidly disintegrating as she reckons with thousands of possibilities for who Shakespeare really was, each one alive and walking around in front of her-and if she can’t keep it together, then she’ll be lost forever!

    The Dreaming: Waking Hours #3 builds continues to build on the strong start G. Willow Wilson gave us in the previous two issues. Her unique tale is an engaging and captivating continuation of the Sandman mythos. Read Full Review

    The Dreaming: Waking Hours #3 features magic, even more chaos, surprise cameos, and a visually striking look at human problems through angels, anthropomorphic embodiments, witches, fairies, and dead authors. G. Willow Wilson, Nick Robles, and Mat Lopes have crafted both memorable characters and settings, and I care equally as much about Lindy, Ruin, Jophiel, and even Heather as I do about their take on the Shakespeare authorship question and additions to the Sandman mythos.

    G. Willow Wilson falters a bit here as her Puck sounds a bit too much like a stock supervillain and not, well, puckish enough. But she's still spinning and enchanting tale about legacy, consequences, and responsibility that will leave readers excited to see how it all ends. Read Full Review
