First Look – The Dreaming: Waking Hours #1

The Dreaming: Waking Hours #1 (DC Comics) variant cover (detail) by Bill Sienkiewicz



A new chapter in the Sandman saga begins with an all-new series populated by faces both familiar and new!

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!

The Sandman Universe is changing—and Hugo and World Fantasy Award-winning writer G. Willow Wilson (Wonder Woman, Ms. Marvel, The Bird King) and breakout artist Nick Robles (Euthanauts) are here to welcome you!
