Dreaming (1996) #1
The Goldie Factor: Part 1 of 3 - Written by Terry LaBan. Art by Peter Snejbjerg. Cover by Dave McKean.
The new ongoing Vertigo series continues the vast and mysterious tapestry begun in The Sandman by Neil Gaiman, who serves as the series' consultant. The Dreaming explores both new and familiar inhabitants of this realm in self-contained tales, short story-arcs, and longer, intricately woven sagas by rotating creative teams.
This issue: Part 1 of a 3-part story arc by writer Terry LaBan and artist Peter Snejbjerg, centering on the former House of Secrets and House of Mystery frontmen, Cain and Abel. In it, Cain murders Abel once too often, so Goldie the infant Gargoyle runs away from the House of Secrets, only to fall under the seductive influence of a limbless being calling himself Tempto. Together, the two embark on a voyage of discovery to some of the farthest reaches of the Dreaming.
