    Overall. This is a brilliant opening to a new story arc on The Dreaming, which picks up on a loose thread leftover from the last arc. I look forward to reading the next issue to see how all of this is going to pan out. Especially given the inclusion of a certain John Constantine in the final few pages. Will we see him fly to America to help save Heather After. Or will she have done enough on her own to allow her to fend off Puck? Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jan 25, 2021

    I love that the story initiated by Neil Gaiman in The Sandman has been brought back and is being carried forwards by some of DC's best talents. Like Simon Spurrier before her, G. Willow Wilson is proving herself worthy of continuing Gaiman's classic story for a new generation. Read Full Review

    Sorry, the rest of this is good but I can’t get over “hey we liked your doctoral dissertation! Good work you are professor now!” God, I wish.

    Well, this is a turn. But I think I like this protagonist and her problems more than the previous one. This is a fun book.

    The colors grew on me, but boy do I hate walking into this story always feeling like I am reading some femme fan-fic.
    Not a problem as the story progressed and Puck actually proved more of a threat than he ever has throughout any Sandman book.
    Death is gorgeous with dreads. DC Direct needs to make a statue of her stat , if there still open. If not MacFarlane toys knows what to do.
    I was surprised to see Constantine , given the events of his latest series, but the dude's magic so that justifiea his every appearance as I pored over JLD and Dead Planet the past year , and now this.
    That talk with the witches parents was comedy, but her boyfriends wardrobe choice is a big red flag as to why I've never let any female in more
