The GB Pull List – The Dreaming: Waking Hours #7 – 3rd February 2021


The Geeky Brummie Pull List with The Dreaming: Waking Hours

After a busy week last week I only have one title on the Pull List today. And a very worthy title it is. The seventh issue of The Dreaming: Waking Hours hits comic shops this week and is end of this particular story. If you want to find out what other comics have caught my eye this week take a look at our Twitter feed @geekybrummie to see what other titles are worth checking out.

In Meanwhile… this week we take a look at some of the work created during #HourlyComicDay

Now on with the comics…



Title: The Dreaming: Waking Hours

Issue: 8

Publisher: DC Black Label

Written by G. Willow Wilson : Art by Javier Rodriguez

Genres: Horror/Fantasy/Superhero

From the Publisher:

Bleeding out in a hospital bed from a magic wound that will not heal, sorceress Heather After must swing open the gates of reality to find herself a protector…but is she prepared for the deal she’ll have to strike once she finds a champion with the dangerous power she needs? And speaking of dangerous power…what happens when Matthew the Raven catches a glimpse of one of the artifacts Heather’s been hiding away?

I’m really enjoying this series. Having Javier Rodriquez supply art on these last two issues has been lovely. His style has married really well with Wilson’s storytelling. It’s also refreshing to have a short two issue story. Really reminds me of the original Sandman run where short but wonderful stories would break up the large arcs. Nick Robles returns next issue as we embark on the next major arc “The Faerie King,”. This is a really great comic and I recommend it to old and new fans of the Sandman Universe.



Hourly Comic Day

On February 1st comic creators and artists around the world illustrate the minutiae of their lives in hasty panels and sketches in Hourly Comic Day. These brief but beautiful creations are absolutely wonderful and I admire the skill and hard work that goes into making these strips. You can find more of these strips by searching for the #hourlycomicday and #hourlycomicday2021 hashtags on Twitter. Below I’ve picked just a few of the first pages of strips I loved this year. Go follow each artist on Twitter for more.

And of course I could only end this list with one of the most hardworking artists around. Not only is Rachael making one of the most personal pandemic comics with her ongoing Quarantine Comix she managed to produce a phenomenal set of hourly comic day strips.
