Dream Corridor #5 was the last issue of the ongoing Harlan Ellison’s Dream Corridor series. The series was re-established the following year in what was planned as a new regular series with Harlan Ellison’s Dream Corridor Quarterly #1 (1996). While no further issues of the Quarterly were published, the series was concluded ten years later in Harlan Ellison’s Dream Corridor Vol. Two (2007).
While house ads and solicitation for this issue promised “The first-ever Harlan Ellison letter column” it unfortunately does not appear in this issue. A note at the end of the comic reads:
“This issue’s charming, endearing fuck-up. Yes, we promised a letter column. Yes, it was used as an alluring come-on last issue, as well as in advertisements in newspapers, on billboards, on television and the InfoWeb. Well, you’re not going to get it in this issue, so sue me. The story [‘The Museum On Cyclops Avenue’] ran longer than I’d planned. Oh, shut up and stop whining!”
The inside front cover features the issue's credits and indicia. All other pages are story content.
