When a dream entity known as a figment emerges from a dreamer's mind, it's Daher's job as an IJ to track them down and make the call: reinsert the figment, or grant them agency in our world. After an especially powerful figment escapes the dreams of an even more powerful politician's son, Daher is pulled headlong into an investigation that traces all the way back to the incident that sent dreams, even nightmares, spilling into our reality.

    But Why Tho? - Mateo Guerrero Dec 16, 2019

    Queen of Bad Dreams is a damn good comic book. It has cannonball momentum and a compassionate beating heart. Blending Sci-Fi procedural with metaphysical existentialism, Queen of Bad Dreams is a new angle on the classic noir experience. Sure, Inspector Judge Daher Wei kicks ass with grace and style. But this book focuses less on smoky shootouts and more on discussions of personal agency and the bonds that bind families together. If you love noir or just love a great comic, Queen of Bad Dreams has what you need. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Apr 27, 2019

    Queen of Bad Dreams #1 is a strong opening for a sci-fi mystery (or thriller?). Daher is a strong female lead, with as many strengths and weaknesses as you might find in any male lead. The world and the premise are fascinating, and the hints of the bigger story yet to come are irresistible. I look forward to seeing where this one heads next. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Arpad Okay Mar 28, 2019

    It all adds up to a powerhouse first issue. A whirlwind of information that is neither overstuffed nor rushed, that manages to fit context, history, personality, and mystery (and a glimpse of how wrong your preconceptions of that mystery are) into an energizing and satisfying read. Queen of Bad Dreams will draw you in fast and leave you intrigued. Read Full Review
