Holiday reading: THE DREAMER by Lora Innes

00 Cover Issue 1
In the spirit of the holidays, here are some archived comics which you may enjoy exploring. First up: Adventure, Romance, War. The Dreamer.



  1. What a wonderful series this is. Lora Innes does an awesome job on this gem of a book.
    I wish every middle school would use this wonderful comic as a way to introduce young girls to American History and promote reading.

    Wasn’t aware of this series, but I just read the first few and it’s fun writing with very impressive art. Will definitely give it a closer look after work, and hey, cool, stuff from Cameron Stewart at one of the other links!

    Thanks for posting these, Heidi.

    I was able to conduct an email interview with Lora Innes, which was published in the December issue of Voice of Youth Advocates, a journal for librarians and educators serving teens. Unfortunately, my column isn’t made available online at VOYA’s website. Anyway, I’m trying to get more librarians in public and school libraries to see the value of The Dreamer!

    BTW, my 20-year-old daughter-in-law also loves the series.

  4. It’s a wonderful series and the book from IDW is great.
    There’s a synopsis of the revolutionary war on the first 2 pages that is worth the price of admission all by itself.

    Definitely a hit with girls and a must for anyone who loves romance and history.

    interesting…some good stuff by Lora and Tina here!

    Wish it was a book, but will check out future pages of the story. :)

  6. I think it’s my favorite webcomic/comic/graphic novel. Come for the art, stay for the story.

  7. Michael…
    It IS a book. Published by IDW.
    I highly recommend it.

  8. And by the way…I think that Lora runs the second best indy booth at comic conventions. She uses a model dressed in the colonial soldier garb and it’s eye-catching, innovative and upbeat. Perfect for all ages and really reflects well on the whole industry.

    Ca n you tell I’m very impressed by both the series and by the creator?
