With the Corinthian loose in the waking world, it's no surprise that people are turning up dead...although this time, they're not the nightmare's doing. (Well, most of them.) The Corinthian is following a trail of bodies to the mysterious Mr. Agony and Mr. Ecstasy...but what's their game? And even more pressing-whose tracks are they trying to cover?

    As with the first issue, Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country #2 contains stellar visuals in both stories, with Simon Bowland's great lettering and James Tynion's writing unifying the two tales. This is a fresh, original, and lovely way of telling a story. Two issues and this series is a dream of a read, I can't wait to hold a printed copy of this issue. Read Full Review

    The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country #2 is a near-perfect issue, although it relies on the first issue to truly reach that perfection. In many respects, Nightmare Country is beautiful in all its horrors as it explores what lies beneath blending the dreaming and waking life. Read Full Review
