It’s nearly time to get your Ruin on as writer G. Willow Wilson and artists Nick Robles and Mat Lopes team up for this new series about the nightmare of catastrophic failure. Out August 4th, DC Comics has revealed two new variant covers are on the way for the first issue of The Dreaming: Waking Hours #1.
The new cover is by Yanick Paquette and Nathan Fairbairn. Check it out below. I don’t know about you but I’m getting a Jim Morrison vibe from Sandman on the top right.
A 1:25 incentive variant cover is also on the way featuring Robles’ design of the new character, Ruin. This cover is in a similar format to the Jorge Jimenez incentive covers coming soon for Batman. You can learn more about Ruin in G. Willow Wilson’s essay on the character.
And for even more check out the early preview DC Comics sent our way a few months back.
So what’s it about? Check out the full synopsis below:
One of Dream’s heaviest responsibilities is the creation of nightmares—the beings that haunt our sleep and turn our thoughts toward darkness. In the form of Ruin, the nightmare of catastrophic failure, Dream was certain he’d built his next masterpiece…but Ruin can’t help but live up to his name, sending every situation into a spiral of unexpected consequences. Unfortunately, Shakespearean scholar (and exhausted new mother) Lindy has dreamed of Ruin…and in the process, she’s delivered him unto the waking world!
The Dreaming: Waking Hours #1 hits shelves on August 4.
