The strange entity who has reluctantly taken on the role of command in The Dreaming approaches the job as one that can be understood logically. That makes her a poor fit for the job, even as she tries to understand it and get help from Abel. Meanwhile, Matthew the raven and mysterious Dora of the winged head, see above, are searching Hell, on the trail of the real Dream Lord. On the way they encounter Balam, a rhymer, and someone who knows Dora well, to her chagrin. The trail wends down to the deepest depths of Hell, and knowledge is gained, but not a resolution. The direction the quest will go next looks promising.
Of the new characters introduced by writer Simon Spurrier, I think Balam is my new favorite. His rhymes are quite good. Both the writing and the art are appealing, and this was a fine read.
