    When I started reading this series, I thought I had a grasp on the what to expect from G. Willow Wilson's story. However, having reached The Dreaming; Waking Hours #4, I have to admit I that I haven't a clue what to expect from the remaining eight issues – but I'm loving every moment of it. This is one of the strangest, but most compelling stories I have ever read. Read Full Review

    OverallThe Dreaming: Waking Hours continues to be a monthly treat. The story is lots of fun with some great twists and turns. In Lindy, we have a character who is easy to relate to as she tries to find the great almighty OZ. As in the real William Shakespeare. Lindy's journey into Shakespeare's world very much has the feeling of Alice going through the Looking Glass. Read Full Review

    A gorgeous book that continues to ask great questions and develop new characters with longevity held back by a chapter that seems listless and unsure of how to kill time before the finale. Read Full Review

    It's a relatively subdued issue compared to what's come before, but it will have readers well-primed for the next issue's climax. Read Full Review
