Ben’s dreams are all nightmares . . . And his nightmares are real! He can also jump into other people’s dreams. So when his friends start falling victim to an evil dream-monster that prevents them from waking, Ben knows he has to help them. With help from a talking rabbit-companion who has a mysterious past, Ben might just be able to defeat the monster and save his friends . . . if he can figure out how to harness the power within him against his enemies.
We wanted to know what your favorite comics and graphic novels for readers of all ages were, and you responded. If you’re looking for a great read for yourself or someone you know, why not try one of these out? Perfect for readers who don’t think they like reading, who want something different, or for those who haven’t picked up a comic before but have been curious about ’em.
Of course, these are also great for the comic lover.
It’s worth noting a handful of these comics are in multiple parts, so if you love the first volume, there are likely more you can dive into, too.
