Upcoming Comics - BROOKLYN DREAMS by DeMatteis&Barr

Despite the fact that I already own the book in its two prior formats, the original 4-volume serialization from 1995 and single volume 2003 softcover both from DC's Paradox Press in their digest format, I'm very tempted by the upcoming hardcover edition of BROOKLYN DREAMS by J.M. DeMatteis and Glenn Barr coming out from IDW in a few months. It's an enormously entertaining book that definitely stands up to and rewards multiple readings, and I'm sure I'll want to revisit it many times in the next few decades, so the more durable binding will be nice. And if that 6.625” x 10.187” trim size is correct, this will be considerably larger than the extant editions, which will make it much easier to read the tiny lettering and appreciate Barr's artwork.

Brooklyn Dreams HC

The complete critically acclaimed saga is re-collected in hardcover for this collection of J.M. DeMatteis and Glenn Barr's Brooklyn Dreams. Celebrated by fans and critics alike, and long out of print, don't miss this chance to own a book that many say will change your life.
$39.99  384 pages  6.625” x 10.187”


  1. and Boom! or IDW or whoever it was that put out the first volume of Seekers Into the Mystery needs to put out the next volume too. I've given up hoping for the Dr. Fate run to be collected.

  2. I just wrote an article on Blood: A Tale for a forthcoming graphic novel encyclopedia. That is such an elusive and neglected work, so unlike the rest of deMatties' output.
    I need to reread Brooklyn Dreams. It's been too long.
