Parasha: Sandman, December 13th reading

Man, disturbing openings r' us. You just know that with an opening like that, it's not going to end well.

"It's almost lunchtime, so I'm heading into town for breakfast." I like the cut of his jib!

There really are a lot of dream-type songs, aren't there? Especially since I was immediately thinking of even more that weren't showing up here. "In my dreams... we climb... and to the top we fly..." or "These dreams go on when I close my eeeeyes" (Y'all can thank the fates that you just have to put up with me typing the songs, not singing them.)

For whatever reason, I just find it utterly amusing to see Dream riding around in a car through the streets of London, or to think of him taking public transport, whichever form of it they took.

I forgot about the walls of the house... ugh. Just... ugh. *twitch* There are some interesting things done with the panels, though! Makes the story at that point seem even more dreamlike and unreal.

Dream comes across as both dickish and kind in this, which is an interesting line to walk!


John Constantine is of course from the series Hellblazer, if you missed the movie. (Which I have, actually, I really need to get around to watching that!)

A reminder of the schedule.
