We gave it an A-

Writer-artist Julie Doucet offers a dream journal of comics: short summaries of nocturnal reveries and nightmares about everything from losing a friend on a subway to a priceless series of ”If I Was a Man” fantasies.

Graphic Goal
Doucet’s faux-primitive style perfectly renders dreams’ messy stream of consciousness.

Comix Effect
She conveys the universal anxiety, dread, and bliss of our sleeping lives.
