REVIEW: Dreamics #2

Book Title: Dreamics #2

Book Description: “Dreamics” is an anthology based on dreams that the author, Nathan Murray, had. When he woke up he put everything that he could remember to paper. The second installment in this series gives three unique short stories. “Naked Lady Sleeping in the Paint” is the tale of a man and woman who are looking at a building that could potentially suit their business needs. We see them explore the building and find themselves in an unlikely place. “You Ain’t No Donnely” is the tale of a workout session at the gym that goes awry. “The Black Hood Society” is the story of a man who visits his friend and finds himself in a high speed chase.

Summary

Given that these stories were all based on dreams, it makes it easier to understand how rapidly we shift gears in plot lines. It’s not necessarily a conventional way to tell a story, but it works. With a smidge more character development and shoring up some of the plot I can easily see these stories hitting the screens in something akin to “Tales From the Crypt”. The stories are unique, interesting, and have more turns than a game of Monopoly.

I like how the cover artwork is done. It has very detailed line work. The colors make it pop. Best of all, it gives us a glimpse of each story that is relevant to the story.

The interior artwork is rock solid from cover to cover. I liked how vivid the third story was. Lines were crisp. We get great facial expressions. I would have liked it if the pages for that story weren’t quite so busy. It made it very difficult to follow the course of events.

As you may have guessed from the cover, there is some full frontal nudity in this book. While the nudity is somewhat gratuitous, it is relevant to the story. This is not a “special romance” book. 

As a geek on a budget I would say “Dreamics” #2 is worth taking a flyer on for a curiosity voyage. You will fascinating stories, terrific artwork, and plot twists galore!

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
