    Chuck's Comic Of The Day

    This book is that rare balance between outstanding writing and excellent artwork. I’ve long been a fan of Russell’s art, and I don’t know that he’s ever done better work. Each page is a work of art alone, and together they tell a fascinating tale.

    This book serves as a strong reminder of the power of the original Sandman comics by Gaiman, and how much they’re missed.
    At any rate, don’t make the same mistake I did when the title first began. Pick up The Sandman: The Dream Hunters while you can.

    Only in a few cases where Russell ditches the narration and dialogue do his pages truly stand out. Russell is an incredible artist – one who never seems to waste a single line in his drawings. He’s able to wrestle an incredible amount of emotion and power in his characters. These sequences need no dialogue because the art speaks for itself. I believe Russell could have pushed these segments further. Perhaps The Dream Hunters can’t work as a completely silent comic, but I would have liked to see Russell conjure up text only when absolutely necessary. It’s rare that he actually needs it.
