These books started out as a web comic and I've been reading them for a while now online and they are amazing.

I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed yet. "The Dreamer" started out as an exceptional web comic but is now available in comic and graphic novel form. As a 40 year old male you wouldn't think that a teen historical romance would be very captivating but after listening to a podcast interview with the author/illustrator (I'm an illustrator myself) I had to check it out. It's not that it is just beautifully illustrated (which it really is!), or that it's a really exciting way of becoming a part of some lesser known stories of our Revolutionary War - Lora Innes has done that which is only rarely accomplished - She has made a graphic story that girls will love (Oh and also anyone who enjoys a sweet but intriguing romance/adventure). This is a must have for the special girl in your life but, guys, you don't have to be embarrassed to admit that you like it too.

This is first rate story telling - if only Lora would hurry up and finish the series!

I teach high school history to urban at-risk teenagers. I just discovered this novel yesterday and could not put it down. The art is fabulous... the colors rich and the story is engaging. I wish there were more to this series... I would buy multiple copies for a class set. I'm disappointed this is the only one and that there was never a follow up. Fingers crossed for part two!! My kids would eat this up!!!

Loved it!!!

Format: Paperback
The Dreamer captures the history of Revolutionary War figures---Captain Nathan Hale, Lt. Col. Thomas Knowlton, General William Howe and Private Frederick Knowlton---with richness and accuracy, and throws in a high school love story, too. We see so much written in books and in the movies about other American wars but not a lot about the American Revolution, the most important event in our history!

Bea is a student in high school with all the anxiousness, gossip and silliness that goes with the title. We see Bea get flustered when discussing her love life, especially when her cousin John teases her (right in the middle of a conversation with her girlfriends about that dreamy Cato).

Normally I'd say gag me with a spoon kiddies, this ain't for me. Except, she has these dreams.

Close your eyes and find yourself locked in a cabin; British commander Howe's cabin to be precise. For those of you not in the know, he was the guy routing the Colonials in 1776. She's rescued by a young man with a facial birthmark. They start falling for each other, then ....

She wakes! She continues mooning over this guy in her dreams to such a degree that she feels she's cheating on him when she tries to go out with Cato.

It's an interesting tale -- she closes her eyes and she lives the life of a young girl in love with a Revolutionary soldier. She opens her eyes and she returns to school with another man in her life. It's not really cheating -- is it?

She finds herself in a museum and sees a painting of the Revolution with soldiers in various states of death and dying and she notes a name -- she knows him, she must warn him!

But she's so excited, she can't sleep!

Lora Innes put together quite the comic book/web comic.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
`The Dreamer' is an online comic created by Lora Innes, which has recently gone into publication with IDW and is now available for purchase from Amazon.

Innes used to draw for Nickelodeon, Mattel and Simon & Schuster, among others, but now devotes her time to this fabulous online comic.

I discovered `The Dreamer' about a year ago, and now my Friday is not complete without my `Dreamer' update. The online comic is currently into its 8th issue, with each issue being between 25-28 pages long with a weekly 2-page update (unless Innes states otherwise). The comic is totally free to view online, and Innes currently has 3 short stories in PDF format available for purchase (I bought and loved her `prologue' story "A most agreeable Thanksgiving" - that's how obsessed I am!)

I absolutely love this comic. I am Australian, so I know next to zilch about the Revolutionary war. Innes is a history-nut and does pain-staking research on everything from the major players in the war to 1700's dress design - and all the research pays off. I learn a little something new about the war in every issue I read, but I'm never bogged down by information or historical facts. This is mostly because Innes has intertwined the historical setting so seamlessly with the time travel plot - the war itself has become a character in the story, raising the stakes for Beatrice and Alan as their romance blooms amidst the chaotic setting.

While the comic does switch between modern day and 1776, Innes has done an incredible job of fleshing out both periods by including a procession of interesting secondary characters to populate Alan and Beatrice's respective worlds. When Bea isn't carousing around 1776, she's back to her regular role as high school misfit, pining after football jock, Ben Cato.

Firstly, I think Lora Innes is a beautiful creator and she has done so well with this project.

I discovered "The Dreamer" a few weeks ago, and tore through it in a single night. That's how much I loved it. It was interesting, captured my attention, the writing is brilliantly done, and the art is a unique, phenomenal style. It's also about real heroes of the American Revolution--minus the two main characters--and is a historically accurate piece while capturing the personal lives of those involved.

"The Dreamer" is about 17-year-old Beatrice Whaley, who begins to suspect that the dreams she keeps having of the American Revolution just might be... real. First, it was nothing but a nice kiss on the lips by a man in a red uniform, and then, the more Beatrice slept, the higher the stakes got. More people were hurt. More lives were at stake. More emotions for the object of her dreamtime romance, Alan Warren, began to take over her heart.

The general idea is that two Beatrice Whaleys exist, and neither know of the other. However, when Bea is transported back in time through her dreams, she takes the place of 1700's Bea, cannot remember a thing about her 1700's life, and is thrown into the midst of the American Revolution... cannonballs and all.

I adore this comic and I definitely think it's worth a read! But it is important to keep the intended audience in mind. Seeing as Bea is a 17-year-old, there's going to be plenty of juicy teenage girl angst, and while I personally find it endearing and entertaining, some audiences may not. Still, I never believe books (or comics!) have age limits. So have at it.
