Trouble befalls a mysterious place in ‘The Dreaming Vol 1’
There are so many amazing graphic novels out there. I have had the privilege to read some great ones lately. Once in a while though I like to go out of my comfort zone and try something new. The Dreaming Vol 1 fit the bill perfectly. I was able to get a digital copy of this graphic novel and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for The Dreaming Vol 1 here:
Daniel, the Lord of Dreams, has abandoned his kingdom, leaving its borders broken and bloody. Lucien, his faithful warden, can feel his own mind slipping away as the Dream King’s realm decays around him. And the other residents of the Dreaming, from the monstrous and mercenary Dora to the gruff, unflappable Merv Pumpkinhead, are fighting among themselves to preserve what they can.
But the true nightmare is yet to come. From out of the black chest of retired nightmares emerges a forgotten menace–an evil that has festered in solitary confinement for more than a century. With a hempen noose and an iron fist, Judge Gallows will bring his own brand of order to the Dreaming, remaking it in his own grim and gory image.
Unless Dream’s legendary siblings, the Endless, step in to intervene…
The Dreaming Vol 1 took me on a rather intriguing journey. It was full of fantastical creatures, some with amazing powers. Some of these characters were unaware of just how strong they truly were. When things started getting bad in this land, risks were taken to try and save it. Sadly some of these decisions only seemed to make things worse. Just when it looked like it was hopeless, a salvation of sorts arrived. Yet it wasn’t clear as this tale came to a close what the future may hold for this magical place.
