    One of the beautiful things about coming-of-age fantasy stories is the fact that they are so relatable to everyone. Whether you are a geeky high schooler or a full-grown adult, we all know what it is like to be going through that process and this issue does a wonderful job of playing on what that is like while also adding something new and exciting to the mix. I for one can't wait to see what worlds Lucy might wake up in next. Read Full Review

    If you liked the 1994 film The Pagemaster or enjoyed Vertigo's more contemporary The Unwritten, you're going to adore Lucy Dreaming. If you have a younger reader that has a knack for daydreaming, they're going to love watching Lucy's opening chapter unfold. It's a familiar premise that has gotten a much-needed upgrades than to the thoughtful and fantastic creative team. It's fun and smart in all the ways you want a young-adult comic in 2018 to be.

    So, while the core concept isnt exactly revolutionary, the execution is nothing less than impeccable, with a wonderfully relatable protagonist and some striking artwork throughout. Yet another new BOOM! Studios series to keep an eye out for then, and I absolutely cant wait until next month to see where Lucy's dreams take her next. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Mar 21, 2018

    The artwork for this issue was great, and if I'm being honest half the reason why I wanted to read it in the first place. The colors are bright and bold " especially in the backgrounds, and they're unafraid to mix colors and add texture as needed. I like that both versions of Lucy are distinct " yet you could still immediately tell it was her. That was very well done, if I may say so. Read Full Review
