Seduced by the sensual wiles of the realm of Faerie, Ruin and Heather After have not only been separated from the angel Jophiel, they’ve completely forgotten why they even set foot in this delightful place. But Faerie’s charms (literally) are lost on Jophiel, and he remains firmly on a mission…unfortunately for him, the king of Faerie has his own ideas on just what Jophiel’s power can do for him!

    Robles and Perker deliver some great visuals throughout the issue. There are great visual moments to be had and the imagery was both surreal and beautiful. Read Full Review

    The Dreaming: Waking Hours #9 is another fantastic chapter in G. Willow Wilson and Nick Robles' followup to Neil Gaiman's classic. Wilson's story has hit every note perfectly so far, and I fully expect that she will continue to do so. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill Apr 6, 2021

    If you haven’t been keeping up with this series I would highly suggest you catch up on it. There is a reason that The Dreaming: Waking Hours is part of the DC Black Label imprint and the art in this story takes full advantage. The first arc is available in trade but at least go back and pick up issues 7 and 8 to get you caught up to this part of the story. The first arc will introduce you to the characters but you do learn a lot about them in this arc. I really can’t say enough positive things about this book. This is one of my favorite stories from DC right now. Read Full Review

Those questions linger as this issue of the series draws to a close, but after another stellar installment, fans will be eager to learn the answers. Read Full Review
