 There is a sequence in the middle of Dream Reavers #1 that clearly demonstrates the abilities of comics to tell some stories more effectively than any other medium. Unfortunately that scene exists in a comic that suffers from clunky dialogue, and a somewhat lackluster story. 

 Story-wise, Iím not exactly sure what writer, Raphael Moran, is going for. From the title I can assume that it deals with some kind of superhero type characters that are all somehow connected in a kind of dreamscape. There is a twist on the very last page, which actually saves the issue from being a total disaster and also has me curious to see where the story is headed.  

 Key artist Marc Borstel does an adequate job of illustrating the story. His characters are expressive and his art is clear enough to understand where characters are and how they are interacting. There are a few instances where itís not entirely clear how certain characters enter the scene, but that may very well be a scripting issue. 

 The highlight of the series is when special guest artists Atul Bakshi and David Hedmark step in to highlight the dream state that the characters seem to exist in. Utilizing different art styles the guest artists provide the reader the best clues as to what may be happening in this issue, which provides as many questions as it does answers as to what the nature of the story is. 

 Most of the time, reading a story that raises far more questions than it does answers is a bad thing, but in this case it might just work. I had some trouble getting through the first few scenes of the comic, but as the comic continued on and the plot kept coming it helped to draw me into the story and left me wanting to read the next issue if only so I can get some answers as to whatís going on.
