'...in hindsight, i do not think i loved him. i just felt his love burning and all consuming and reflected it back like the cold moon reflects the light of the sun.'---this is more than a comic book, it is a collection of souls captured in words. the graphics is astounding, but it's the story that got me captivated. i saw bit pieces of my life from the testimonials of the attendees in Dreams' wake...a sunset-colored nostalgia...somewhere in the vast crowd of mourners in Dream's world, i saw myself bleeding for the death of a king.
