    So pretty! So imaginative! So heartbreakingly DREAMING. I adored this and Dora is the awesomest. ...

    I was really hoping I'd like this more than I did. It got off to a much better start than the previous The Dreaming series from the 90s, but it's not nearly on the same level of quality that earlier book had achieved by the time Caitlin R. Kiernan was stationed at the helm. This book i...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher I was able to read this book in exchange for an honest review. *** I enjoyed jumping back into the Sandman universe, it?s been a long while since I?ve read Sandman so I?d forgotten how utterly bizarre and magical the world of the dreaming a...

    I love the original Sandman series. The stories were layered with characters that I adored. It was nice to see Merv again, I will admit, but aside from him this volume lacked much of the spark of the originals. Dora was a welcome addition, but the rest of the characters fell a bit flat...

    'The Dreaming Vol. 1: Pathways and Emanations (the Sandman Universe)' by Simon Spurrier with art by Bilquis Evely is a kind of spinoff of the acclaimed Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. This is not a good place to start in this world. You need to have some familiarity with what has happe...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley actual rating: 3.5 I am still kind of unsure whether I want to round this up or down, but I did enjoy it overall so I think 4 stars is a fair rating. I have always had a very hit or miss relationship with the Sandman universe so ...

    The Dreaming, Vol. 1: Pathways and Emanations by Spurrier, Gaiman, et. al. is a free NetGalley e-comicbook that I read in early June. Whoaaaa, it's eyepoppingly colorful and detailed, as epic in appearance as it is in content with its giant cast of characters who live in a kind of d...

    The First of Four New Sandman Universe Series O.K., here's the deal as I understand it. There are four new series that are spinoffs of Neil Gaiman's Sandman Universe. Each shares and expands on the Sandman Universe and is set in the "evolving" world of the Dreaming. Don't know how m...

    That moody emo git Dream has buggered off on a jolly out of The Dreaming! And wouldn?t you Adam?n?Eve it, an ever-widening crack has suddenly appeared across the realm, the portal no longer keeps out danger and scores of strange blank people (?soggies?) are flooding the land....

    I'm a big fan of Neil Gaiman and The Sandman Universe, so I was very eager to read the new spinoff series curated by Gaiman in honour of Sandman's 30th anniversary. Simon Spurrier does a great job of the writing (which still feels very Gaiman-esque) and Bilquis Evely's art is simply st...

    Warnings: mentions (and visual depiction) of lynching and slavery, physical violence, xenophobia and allusions to the migrant crisis, some nudity I'll admit, I didn't have any ideas about the set-up of the Sandman universe (besides knowing of its existence) before going into this bo...

    Stop me if you've heard this one - Dream is missing, and The Dreaming is suffering. Sound familiar? It should. But this Dream isn't the one you're thinking of; Daniel is MIA, and that's left Lucien, Merv Pumpkinhead, and the other denizens of The Dreaming at a loss. As they struggle to...

    One of the most appealing parts of Neil Gaiman's Sandman series was that it was one of those rare long-running comic books that had a definitive end. It ran for a total of 75 issues and, for a while, that was it. Over the years, Gaiman had returned a few times to the universe in order...

    It's no Sandman, or even Lucifer, but then there wasn't really much chance it would be. But it doesn't disgrace Gaiman's creations, and it does provide a Dreaming that feels vaguely familiar even as it falls apart. Si Spurrier utilizes a number of the classic characters: some well, so...

    For The Sandman?s 30th Anniversary, a return to The Dreaming. The Dreaming was, to be fair, one of the lesser books of the Vertigo line, though I always enjoyed the character. Merv Pumpkinhead, Lucien the Librarian, Matthew the Raven, Cain and Abel were all fun characters. They are a...

    Once upon a time, Neil Gaiman completed his run of the Sandman and was followed by The Dreaming, originally a mediocre anthology comic that gained some depth when Caitlín R. Kiernan took over for the latter two-thirds of the run, telling a coherent story that made great use of the sec...

    I never read the original series, so maybe I would have a different opinion if I had. Anyway, this was below my expectations. I really like the art and the originality of the world. My problem was with the storyline, that try to be epic, but was a bit confuse in my opinion, and with a ...

    When it comes to books, I can be a very simple human being. Did I saw this Sandman on NetGalley and almost went through my screen because I was so eager to request it? Sure I did. (I had pretty much the same reaction when I learned that Netflix would create a Sandman series... Now?...

    Neil Gaiman has always commented about the possibility of more Sandman, and so to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the title, DC published a line of comic books under its Vertigo imprint. With each comic being overseen by Gaiman, but written by new creative teams, The Sandman Universe...

    Daniel has abandoned the Dreaming and left the supporting cast of Sandman to their own devices. Things quickly spiral out of control as no one knows where Daniel went or what to do in his absence. This actually isn't bad, which is always a worry when someone else plays in Neil Gaiman's...

    Out of all the expansion collections from this latest universe drop a year or so ago, this one is most faithful to Gaiman?s original voice and themes. Although it has been at least 5 years since I read the Sandman. While the Dreaming may be familiar territory and include familiar fac...

    Overall, I enjoyed The Dreaming, Vol 1...it revisited some of the old Sandman nostalgia, but is definitely taking it into a new direction. I enjoyed meeting new characters, and revisiting old ones. The first volume in this series definitely introduces a lot of new mysteries, which I am...

    I had very mixed feelings reading this. After reading previous graphic novels from the Sandman Universe, this wasn't what I expected. My interest just wasn't caught and it was difficult to focus on to complete. The art was beautiful, but it was often difficult to follow what was happen...

    *3.5* Whilst it was great to be back in the world of The Sandman, I felt a bit of a disconnect towards this (at least in terms of this first story arc). The characters were interesting, but the new character, Dora, left something to be desired and same thing with the villain, Judge ...

    After last year's underwhelming Sandman Special I wasn't expecting much from this series, but I usually like Si Spurrier's writing and I love Bilquis Evely's artwork, so I decided to check out the first volume of The Dreaming anyway. And I was pleasantly surprised! The series is a f...

    This comic was a treat. I loved the story, I found it creepy and very engaging. I read it in an hour and I couldn't stop. The artwork is amazing, much like DC's dark style. There is little more to say, I really loved it and will definitely be reading the volumes to come. ...

    When I first finished the series, back in the ancient times known as high school, I was dying for more. Morpheus had just died and was replaced by this new guy called Daniel. I desperately wanted to know about him. What kind of Dream was he? Was he like Morpheus or was he less of an as...

    I'm not sure about this one. Anyone who wasn't already familiar with the Sandman Universe and the Dreaming (the place and characters) would be totally lost here, but luckily I am not in that camp. I understood what was going on, but I can't say I was hugely invested in it. The villain ...
