At this point, I honestly hope you're all reading Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland, because if you're not, you're missing out on one of the most beautifully drawn, cleverly constructed comics on the stands right now. No to be confused with Locas Moon Press' Little Nemo: Dream A Little Dream anthology, the next issue of Eric ShanowerGabriel Rodriguez and Nelson Daniel's IDW book asks one of the most soul-sizzling questions in comic book history: What happens when Slumberland sleeps?!

Okay, so maybe it's not quite "Who Watches The Watchmen," but when Nemo starts exploring Slumberland while the rest of the residents are snoozing, he comes across the Tessellated Tower, and with it, one of the most beautiful pages of the year.

 Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland #3
Eric Shanower (w) • Gabriel Rodriguez (a & c)

After the startling events of the previous issue, Nemo is quite surprised to find himself in Slumberland once again, but not altogether unhappy. While the princess, Bon-bon, and Candy Kid sleep, Flip takes Nemo on a garden tour until they encounter the wondrous Tessellated Tower—the most remarkable thing Nemo has ever seen. Meanwhile, the princess awakens to discover that Nemo has run off… and with the horrid Flip, of all people!
