The Master of Dreams, Part 6: 24 Hours wiki last edited by Billy Batson on 06/29/13 05:40AM View full history

Over the course of 24 horrific hours, Dr. Destiny unleashes impossibly dark terror on six unsuspecting people in a small-town diner. Armed with Morpheus’ Dreamstone, Destiny can rearrange time and space and does so to dreadful ends in this eerie, nearly standalone issue.

Doctor Destiny, now in possession of Morpheus' Dreamstone uses it to unleash his madness on the world. All thoughts of world conquest go out the window however when he becomes too absorbed with watching TV and playing with a handful of patrons at an all night diner. The story follows his madness hour-by-hour as it progresses over a 24 hour period.

How Many Hours Could You Take? 0

I would personally say Hour 15...but than again Destiny has control over you the whole time, so its doubtful you can choose when your finished spending 24 hours in John Dee's Hell. Anyways, as for my review on the issue, well there's not much to say without going into explicit detail or ruining the entire awesomeness of the issue, but I can tell you that after reading this comic, I think I just stared into space for about five minutes, in shock. After reading this, I got a taste of true insanity...
