    I’ve been waiting for this moment since someone else first turned me on to this information…

    Mother: Lyta, powering the Kindly Ones
    Crone: Thessaly, protecting Lyta in the waking world
    Maiden: Nuala, pulling Morpheus out of the Dreaming at the worst possible time

    They’re everywhere.Report

    Two more bits:

    It was Cluracan who gave Nuala the glamour, not the Queen. You can see him do it in the panel to the left. Mab/Titania/Whoever would never stoop so low as to dress someone.

    It always got me a little bit that Cain saved Goldie. Even jerks have soft spots.Report

    Man, the Loki stuff (including his return to incarceration, and him twisting the knife with Thor, and Loki’s own faithful wife) is harsh & haunting.

    Cluracan’s exposition re: Faerie and custom also serves as commentary on where Morpheus is at this point.

    Mervyn with an army jacket and machine gun (and a cigar that makes him cough – presumably he’s smoking it like he does his cigarettes) is awesome, and possible tattoo material. Just like he’s said all along, he’s a pumpkin of action, not a moony dreamer like his boss. His “war dialogue” is hilarious.

    Not that it helps him, and I like that Lucien is pissed about that.

    Morpheus’ carriage that becomes the train bit reminds me of Stephen King a little (maybe it’s the interpolation of the “you can be me when I’m gone” part, which seems like the kind of repetitive song lyric King likes to use for motif/prophecy).

    Morpheus sure appears to tolerate Cain more than he likes him, doesn’t he? Kind of a cold/formal greeting, even for him.

    I didn’t look back to check, but the last panel of 11 (Dream holding his helm, getting ready to go) looks a lot like the panel when he leaves to go back to Hell for Nada.
