It's Dream Time, Snoop Doggy Dogg by J.T. Yost

(birdcage bottom books) What's interesting about dreams is that they follow a logic that while sensible and obvious is your sleeping head, is revealed as absurd and nonsensical when you recall or retell the somnombula-stories the next day. Often the problem with dream-based comix is that they either indulge this absurdity with rainbow/unicorn/psychedelia fantasy stylings or they decide to stay true to the dream logic at the expense of good storytelling. Yost, in this second volume of celebrity dream comix (featuring not only Snoop but also Rollins, Dick Cheney, and more) either jiggers his elysium fables to make the stories better or has trained himself to dream in funny, interesting, well-paced scenes. Either way, this comic is the shizzle!
