...I definitely didn't intend for dreams to play a large part in the Cerebus storyline and, yes, Barry [Windsor-Smith]'s 'Cerebus Dreams' story triggered the resulting onslaught of dream content. When it came in I thought it was a great idea and particularly well suited to what it was that I was trying to do: an actual life. A good third of all actual lives are spent dreaming so it was really impossible to over-emphasize the presence of dreams unless I did over 100 issues of them.

People only spend a few hours dreaming during sleep, but an interesting point anyways.

It wasn't until I was looking at this cover upside down one day that I realized what that floating thing next to the issue number box was.
