  • Publisher’s description: John Lincoln didn’t understand why vengeful ghosts possessed him while he slept—until he learned that his father was also a Dream Thief! To give Dad’s spirit rest, he’ll need to orchestrate a prison break, avoid a statewide manhunt, and try not to get possessed himself! Collects issues #1–4 of the miniseries.
  • From our review of Dream Thief: Escape #1: As in the original Dream Thief comic, Nitz shows his well-honed ability to balance hard-hitting action—Lincoln goes on a couple of ghost-possessed revenge sprees in this issue—with measured expository sequences, all without undermining the story’s momentum and pacing. The addition of subplots concerning a state investigation into the death of Lincoln’s girlfriend (from the first miniseries) and what looks to be an upcoming alliance-of-convenience with his father’s murderer adds layers of narrative tension to an already taut and gripping supernatural murder mystery.”
