Huzzah For Lora Innes!
I was actually planning to post about something else (like why I didn't post last Wednesday like I was supposed to) but after checking out the weekly update of one of my most favorite self-published comic series in the world, I just had to say something about it.
You might have noticed that there's a link on the lowest part of this blog's right column with the words The Dreamer emblazoned on it. Ooh, you haven't? You have permission to scroll down to look at it then come back.
Anyway, that goes straight to a web comic I read every Friday. It's about a modern-day teenager who dreams (literally) of living another life almost three hundred years back. There's some conflict, drama, and the occasional war tragedy. The characters are also very lovable.
Well, with all that said...
The Dreamer's getting published!
Yes, that was a very uncalled-for fan girl moment.
Still. I'm getting excited just thinking about how I can actually hold my favorite comic in my hands some day soon. I'll be able to leaf through the pages and indulge in beautiful pictures that tell an unusual story.
I mean, really. How many comic books tell stories based in 1776 accurately?
I've always loved the history of the American Independence so that detail caught me quickly last year. And I've been hooked ever since.
I'm also especially happy for Lora Innes, the comic book's creator. She's put a lot into this comic even though it hadn't been making her money; she even quit her job.
And best of all, the comic's still going to be on the internet even after it's published. Huzzah!
Here's a cute and silly meme I did in support of the comic last week.
I'm just so happy for her, and for us readers, of course. I wish Lora and the rest of The Dreamer team all the best as they support Lora's dream as a comic book artist.
