Underrated Graphic Novel Series: The Dreamer by Lora Innes

17 year-old Beatrice ‘Bea’ Whaley is a student who begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier named Alan Warren, a member of an elite group known as Knowlton’s Rangers that fought during the Revolutionary War. It isn’t long before Beatrice questions whether her dreams are simply dreams or something more.

Sounds like Outlander fans might enjoy this one…

Find books one and two in our online catalog.

Other rank’s coat, 1st Foot Guards, c. 1773. Surviving uniforms from the 18th century are rare, and those of ordinary soldiers are even rarer. This is one of two identical uniform coats, held in the National Army Museum and the Snowshill Wade Costume Collection, the circumstances of whose creation and the reason for their preservation are unknown.

Is Beatrice gonna be Agent 355? Because that would be soooo cool!

Huh. That would be cool.

I just wanted to say I've been reading this comic since high school and I've gotten more and more people addicted to this. Thanks for making this comic. It fufills my 'strong female character in history' requirement :)

Well thank you for saying that.

I get self-conscious about the romance angle of The Dreamer, as if it disqualifies me from writing either serious stories or strong female characters.  I am both a strong woman (I’m sure Mike would agree!) and one who loves deeply (I think here Mike would also agree), so why can’t my heroines also be both?

Vapid romance books have given all romance stories a bad name—as if romance can’t equate to serious storytelling or strong women don’t fall in love. Jane Austen, Gustave Flaubert, the Brontë sisters, Kate Chopin and Shakespeare have all proven that assumption wrong!

I hope that you are feeling better and that recovery is going well! Do you have a general idea of when The Dreamer will be updated again?

I have a very specific idea.

Stay tuned… the relaunch is coming soon and it’s going to be a lot of fun.

Will the fabulous Miss Innes be at Baltimore Comic Con again this year?

Yes, as a matter of fact, she will be.

Look for me at the Kids Love Comics section.
