Dream Thief: Escape #1 Review

What if you fell asleep and vengeful ghosts took over your body? Well that is the problem for John Lincoln. Read on to find out more.

Like his father before him, John Lincoln is a Dream Thief, possessed by vengeful spirits while he sleeps—a deadly instrument of revenge! Now he must defend the felon possessed by his father’s ghost . . . and get revenge against his killer! Continuing the supernatural drama of last summer’s acclaimed miniseries.

The Dream Thief was a great and new series that started last summer drthfes1p1but, after, the arc the series took a stop but now it’s back with a new arc called Dream Thief: Escape. It starts with a death of a bad guy that wronged one of the spirits of the possessing. Then it gives a nice background about our main character in the series, John Lincoln. However, he doesn’t get much of rest after he gets back from his latest adventure, because the police are at his home waiting for him. Then it just gets more and more interesting with the reveal of his father but is it really his father or is this something completely different. I am not sure but we shall figure it out.

The writing for this issue is very good. It gives us a background to the story that allows us to understand what is going on, even if we are not familiar. There is some intrigue and interest and that is awesome. The one problem that I have is that it is really slow. There are things that happen but then they kind of don’t lead to anything or make me really exciting, but I feel like it will be better.

The art is very good. The dark and gritty style adds a nice dynamic to the story, especially because the scenes shift so much.

Dream Thief: Escape is a good start but is very slow going.
