Harlan Ellison’s Dream Corridor Quarterly


Only fools try to outsmart tidal waves. No matter how worthy you imagine yourself to be, no matter how deeply you believe in your cause, Oscar Wilde was right when he observed, “A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.” We believed, as we still believe, that Harlan Ellison’s Dream Corridor is what comics were created to aspire to: A classy and entertaining anthology filled with stories that can roll your socks up and down your ankles, adapted by the very best writers and illustrators in the business. From Peter David and David Lapham to Mike Deodato and John Byrne, every issue of Dream Corridor came at you with the delightful, memorable, and unexpected. Then the debacle happened. The market went up in flames and down in ashes. Mad, costumed trivia tore out its guts with both hands and ate its own innards. We chose to climb to the cool peaks and look down on the lunacy. Now the foolish fads and crossovers have subsided for a time, and Dream Corridor is back. Larger, in a 64-page, quarterly format, but without alteration in what you adored.
