Figment 2 # 5 “The Legacy of Imagination Part Five: Big Dreams” by Jim Zub and Ramon Bachs brings the latest chapter of Figment and Dreamfinder to a conclusion. The Academy Scientifica-Ludicus is overrun by doubt thanks to Doubtfinder’s fear gas. And Doubtfinder is able to battle Dreamfinder by pointing out the fear and doubt in all of Dreamfinder’s dreams. Can Capri and Dreamfinder’s friends defeat the villain? And most of all can there be a payoff for the cover and its mosaic of imagination creations? The story does wrap up this chapter of Dreamfinder’s life, but Zub does not answer all questions and the next chapter is foreshadowed as Dreamfinder steps into his next adventure.
I will admit I liked Figment a little better than the sequel. The prior story was more fantasy while this is more allegory and internal struggle to me. I worry that this struggle was lost at times on the Between Kid. But the Kid did ask to have me finish the tale and was eager to have it read. And while not my favorite overall arc I did enjoy Figment 2 and find myself hungry for the next edition.

Figment 2 was a satisfying all ages story that the family enjoyed. And yes I want these titles to continue! They really do help me get my Disney fix as my visits to the park get further and further apart. And it amazes me the Between Kid loves Figment, despite never enjoying his Epcot attraction!
