Max Bemis and Michael Dialynas Invite You to Witness Lucy Dreaming
BOOM! Studios has announced Lucy Dreaming, a new limited series debuting March 2018 from Say Anything frontman Max Bemis and GLAAD Award-winning artist Michael Dialynas about a young girl who goes to sleep every night and becomes the hero of all of her favorite stories, living out grand adventures and learning more about the reality she lives in than she could ever learn in her waking life.
Lucy is a grumpy, emotive, full-of-life, 13-year-old girl who keeps waking up in the shoes of various archetypal female heroes. One night she’ll wake up as a space princess turned rebel leader, another night she’ll be a reluctant heroine who becomes the symbolic motivation for an entire country to revolt. But as fantastic as these “dreams” are, they carry the same life-and-death stakes as if Lucy was awake in real life. The reason why all this is happening to her, though, is a secret for now.
BOOM! Studios published Bemis’ first original comics work, Polarity, in 2013, followed by Evil Empire and Oh, Killstrike. With artist Michael Dialynas, the publisher recently published the conclusion to his award-winning, long-running series, The Woods, with writer James Tynion IV.
