Issue: Dream Keepers Vol 2#: Flight to Starfall
Story & Artwork: Liz Thomas, David Lillie
Publisher: Vivid Publishing
Release Date: 2008
“The dreamworld is a mysterious reality that parallels our own. Humans cannot enter this plane – we can only catch fleeting glimpses of it through our dreaming minds. Dark things lurk in this fantasy world, however – and we are vulnerable while we sleep. They thirst to cross from their world into our unconscious and defenseless minds – using our dreams as the bridge. The only thing blocking their path is the existence of the dreamkeepers.“

WOW! And I thought Vol. 1 was an amazing looking book. We might as well just jump right into the colors on this. One word can easily sum them up, Breathtaking. The way that the environments are detailed is just jaw dropping, and then you add the characters on top of it and you have a near flawless looking book. The design and look of the characters is fun and inviting, but the winner in this volume was the Tongue Monster. Haha. Overall I don’t know what more can be done to make this book look any better.
Story: 4.5 out of 5
The story in this volume doesn’t deal with as much horror and monster material as the first did, but it is an excellent read. As the story moves forward I got much more understanding as to who the characters really were. The dialogue is believable and even though we have cute characters, it does not dumb down the edge. So many things are going on here and Lillie and Thomas have done a great job to make it all work. A solid read.
Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
Hands down one of the most gore-geous books I have ever seen. The story is fun and really addicting. I want to read volume 3 yesterday. This is a great concept done right and I just want to see it all collected into one massive volume in the end. How none of the major companies have picked this up yet is beyond me. Check this story out, that’s about all I can really say.
