Publisher Description:  A new chapter in the Sandman saga begins with an all-new series populated by faces both familiar and new.

One of Dream’s heaviest responsibilities is the creation of nightmares—the beings that haunt our sleep and turn our thoughts toward darkness.  In the form of Ruin, the nightmare of catastrophic failure, Dream was certain he’d built his next masterpiece… but Ruin can’t help but live up to his name, sending every situation into a spiral of unexpected consequences.  Unfortunately, Shakespearean scholar (and exhausted new mother) Lindy has dreamed of Ruin… and in the process, she’s delivered him unto the waking world!

The Dreaming: Waking Hours #1, written by G. Willow Wilson and art by Nick Robles, will be in comic shop on August 4 with a main cover by Nick Robles and a variant cover by Bill Sienkiewicz.  The series will carry DC’s "Black Label" descriptor (Ages 17+) and carries a $3.99 cover price.
