I have resisted posting this for a few day, but other than the fact that no-one is interested in other people's dreams, I see no reason not to.
Last week I had a full night of comic related dreams. I can't think of any particular catalyst other than the fact that I pretty much live on comic blogs these days, and I had been reading things about the New York Comic Con and generally wishing that I could have been there.
One of my dreams featured a sort of surreal comic convention. It was in a sprawling warehouse complex not at all unlike the sorts of places that often house antique and collectibles 'malls' or indoor flea markets. There were old pros and lots of vendors and stores represented. I don't recall a lot more than that, other than it had a strange folk festival vibe to it as well, and I was walking around with someone I have never seen before. In the dream I at least sort of knew him. It was an interesting dream. I am pretty sure I have had dreams set at that 'convention' before. I wish I could have more like that, and maybe dream-read some half-priced trades.
The other dream I had was set in an amalgam of places like my current house and the house I grew up in. This is also not uncommon for me in dreams. This one was notable because I dreamed I had a phone conversation with Valerie of the Occasional Superheroine blog. I am a fan of her blog, and in the past few months have had a lot of things I wouldn't have minded saying to her, so my dream self just gave her a call apparently.
It was a nice conversation. For her part, my dream version of her was a bit reserved and apprehensive I guess, but nothing but nice. I mostly just went on introducing myself, trying not to seem stalkerish, and talking about her blog.
I told her that I thought her blog was pretty great, and that while things had seemed a bit bumpy for a while, she had come back like gangbusters and was doing some of her best stuff. Good variety, entertaining, insightful, etc.
That was pretty much it. I figured I should document it here since it's sort of almost comic related.
Anyone else out there having comic dreams?
