Your First Look At ‘The Dreaming Waking Hours’ #1 By Wilson, Robles And Lopes

by Olly MacNamee

G. Willow Wilson, Nick Robles and Mat Lopes are the newest creative team to journey into the Sandman Universe and play in the Neil Gaiman created and inspired sandbox with The Dreaming: Waking Hours #1. Now part of the DC Black Label imprint, DC Comics have released a first look at the debut issue retiring some very familiar faces from this darker corner of teen DCU. Out August 4.

One of Dream’s heaviest responsibilities is the creation of nightmares—the beings that haunt our sleep and turn our thoughts toward darkness. In the form of Ruin, the nightmare of catastrophic failure, Dream was certain he’d built his next masterpiece…but Ruin can’t help but live up to his name, sending every situation into a spiral of unexpected consequences. Unfortunately, Shakespearean scholar (and exhausted new mother) Lindy has dreamed of Ruin…and in the process, she’s delivered him unto the waking world!
