The Dreaming

 DREX   (Vertigo, 1996-2001)

™ and ©1996 DC Comics, Inc.

When writer Neil Gaiman decided to end the highly praised flagship title of the Vertigo line, Sandman, DC Comics hoped to maintain the critical acclaim and the readership with a new title that, although not about Morpheus or his successor Daniel, does include supporting characters like Cain and Abel, Matthew, Eve, and Lucius.

The Dreaming is the name of the mystical realm everyone visits each night and is thus capable of telling as many kinds of stories as there are dreams. Much like Sandman, this book is essentially an anthology title with the universe established by Neil Gaiman as the foundation on which new writers and artists can build. It features a variety of stories, with new characters as well as old favorites.
