* The issue "Men of Good Fortune": Dream is walking around with Death sometime in the middle ages, and he meets a guy named Hob who says he's not going to die. Death and Dream share a brief smile, and Dream tells the guy he'll meet him again on this spot in a hundred years time. They do, and they keep meeting every hundred years. Then the man notices that there are other people who don't die, and he wonders why Dream keeps coming back to meet him every hundred years. Answer? He needs a friend. Dream is insulted and leaves in a huff, while the man yells after him that if they meet the next hundred years later it'll be because they're friends, and for no other reason. Cut to a hundred years later. The man is sitting down at a table and he looks up, and Dream is there.
