And Then I Read: THE DREAMING #9

Image © DC Comics. Written by Simon Spurrier, art by Bilquis Evely, colors by Mat Lopes, letters by Simon Bowland, cover by Yanick Paquette & Nathan Fairbairn.

The two issue interlude on Earth of issues 7-8 is over, and we are back to the excellent art of Bilquis Evely and much more interesting writing by Simon Spurrier, not to mention a fine cover by Paquette and Fairbairn. Hooray! Matthew the Raven is telling someone about recent developments in The Dreaming, as we see Dora appealing to the strange moth-like creature (as seen on the cover) who seems to be in charge. Dora wants a search made for Lucien. Other Dreaming regulars have demands, too. What the nameless moth-thing decides is that Dream himself is who is most needed, and with new evidence found to track him, that search begins, undertaken by Matthew and Dora. It first takes them to Faery, where we find out what’s been happening to Nuala, the one-time servant of Dream, the person Matthew has been talking to. She has seen Dream recently, and has a very interesting story to tell about his last visit to Faery and what he left there with Queen Titania.

Man, I am loving this book again. Highly recommended!
