THE SANDMAN: THE DREAM HUNTERS #2
In the timeless realm of Japanese myth, the King of Dreams has told the fox how to save the life of the human she loves. It's simple: To protect him, she has to die in his place. In the uncertain realm of dreams and nightmares... Continuing the adaptation of best-selling author Neil Gaiman's prose story THE SANDMAN: THE DREAM HUNTERS into sequential format by master storyteller P. Craig Russell (THE SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS), this issue also features a variant cover by fan-favorite artist Mike Mignola (Hellboy)!
Concluding the 5-part debut story arc in sweeping fashion, Brandon uses his deadly new powers in an attempt to rescue Sarah from the bomber-jacketed assassins. Then he stretches his abilities even further for a confrontation with his comatose father that leaves Brandon wondering where he stands on the plane of reality.
In part 3 of the 5-part debut story arc, a secret kept by Brandon's late father could explain Brandon's incessant interdimensional shifting — as well as the mystery of his own apparent death — as long as he can escape the relentless team of operatives bent on killing him a second time.
DOOM PATROL VOL. 6: PLANET LOVE
Legendary writer Grant Morrison (ALL STAR SUPERMAN, BATMAN) finishes his fractured remake of this 1960s misfit super-team in this volume collecting DOOM PATROL #58-36 and DOOM FORCE SPECIAL #1. Along the way, the Doom Patrol must face new challenges: Danny the Street meets his cosmic destiny, the bizarre hero known as Rebis battles the Candlemaker, and Crazy Jane attempts to find her place in the world.
Part 2 of the debut story arc by writer Bruce Jones (NIGHTWING, THE WARLORD) and innovative artist John Watkiss. Brandon Cayce wakes up in another reality, one where the beautiful Sarah is his own wife, not his brother's. Nothing makes him happier, but Brandon quickly discovers that for a dead man, opening doors between dimensions can have grave consequences even for the living.
The superstar veteran team of fan-favorite writer Bruce Jones (NIGHTWING, THE WARLORD) and innovative artist John Watkiss (SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE, TRIGGER) explores the mysteries of life — and love — after death in this original re-imagining of the classic DC character. Combining over-the-top action and brain-tingling speculation, this is Deadman as only Vertigo could deliver in an ongoing series about sex and string theory; parapsychology and political conspiracy; where the "wonder years" and the afterlife are just two dimensions of the same reality.
Part 4 of the 5-part debut story arc. Scott forces Brandon to confront a series of possible realities, dimensions where death is far from the worst fate. While back in this reality, the bomber-jacketed assassins try to show Brandon and Sarah that getting killed is about as real as it gets.
