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.


All-ages graphic novels are great for reluctant readers, advanced readers, and—let’s face it—adults as well. That’s why they’re all-ages: they’re great and completely enjoyable, no matter what age you are when you’re reading them. What comics, whether series, graphic novels, graphic memoirs, webcomics, or something else entirely, do you recommend when it comes to all-ages comics? Let us know in the comments!
