Tasty blend of inclinations and creativity. Reklaw puts real people's weird dreams in four-paneled comic book format, with plenty of funny character commentary, celebrity cameos and imaginative drawing thrown in for absolutely free. The author portrays the dreams right - the fears, the unresolved issues coming to the forefront, the lack of total control over the outcome, and even the occasional victory. "What is dream and what is reality?" one could ask while reading these, and not without some mildly pseudo aplomb. If only...yet, no. I wanted at least some of these delicious stories to go beyond four panels, like in a "too be continued" format or in the form of a longer story, and Reklaw could have incorporated additional types of humor to spice things up a bit. But he sticks with his tried and true style and carves out a specialized, witty voice and look.
