Seven years ago, an attempt to weaponize dreams resulted in holes being punched through the world we know and into the world of dreams. Nightmarish creatures now stalk the land, sprouting from (and killing) anyone unlucky enough to dream. The only way to save the world is for certain people to have their dreams come true.

Which is how Risa Harumi finds herself not only fighting monsters, but forced into finding true love. Monsters and modern dating? It feels like a nightmare either way, and the only help Risa has is a friendly-ish monster named Croak and her pre-teen daughter, Machi.

    The book has it all. From the scientific experiments in the name of weaponizing dreams going wrong, kick-ass sword fights, the military, the yakuza, a lovable monster who devours nightmares and a somewhat comical dating/romance twist it really delivers what is one of the most original and unique horror comics of 2021.

    With weird hints of Ghostbusters, Labyrinth, Nightmare on Elm Street and Sleepless in Seatle this is a strange but compelling read. There's something about soldiers on a treadmill learning wine pairings that bring a smile to my face. Read Full Review

    There's a lot going on here and it doesn't always make sense, but MacDonald's art does keep it interesting even when a page seems to be almost exclusively text. Read Full Review
