‘Dreams and Everyday Life’ is comprised of three interconnected stories that fuse reality, fiction and science fiction in a poetic, comic and philosophical look at everyday life…
As a comics fan Scott McCloud’s book ‘Understanding Comics’ is a staple on my bookshelf. Taking some of the commentary in that book and putting that into a real world setting would be the best description of this book.
Made for the iPad, this graphic novel lives up to it’s title. Made up into three parts I never had an idea on what happens next! This graphic novel made me smile, sad and think all in one go. The are some excellent sequences here which add to the appeal – what I enjoyed the most was the randomness of the subject range! It reminds me of watch an Eddie Izzard show – which tangent are we on again!?
Although this is a perfect ‘pick up’ and ‘put down’ comic, it felt to me the type of comic which you pick up and read from cover to cover – and then later can pick it up and flick to any part to read and enjoy.
I enjoyed and hope you would too!
