Sometimes, nightmares walk the Earth.
Every night when you sleep, the Lord of Dreams chooses the path you’ll follow… into a sylvan Elysium, or down the hallways of your darkest fears. And sometimes, if it is Dream’s will, those nightmares escape those halls, and go out into the world. But it is not a choice he makes lightly.
Today the Corinthian walks the Earth again. The most feared of all Dream’s nightmares, his ravenous mouths have made him a legend among serial killers. Letting the Corinthian out among mortals is the most dangerous thing Dream could possibly do. But he has no choice – because there is another nightmare walking the Earth, one that must be hunted… and this monster is one that Dream, lord of all nightmares, did not make.
