Episode 40 - Dreams To Remember


Comics Therapy. New Reviews. Just Analysis.

Two books from April 30, 2014. Plus your Nerd Confessions (about your creator dream teams).
On The Couch: writer Joe Harris.

Show Notes:

The theme this week is sleep. Specifically the kind of sleep where dreaming is possible, if not inevitable. Everybody dreams. But through thousands of years of speculation and study, we’re no closer to really understanding why we do or what they mean. Dreams in fiction have a special power all their own, often exploring the more surreal aspects of this shared experience we have no control over. It all comes down to how much you trust your ability to stay safe within your own subconscious.

Part Inception, part Dragnet.

An all-ages blend of Wizard of OzLabyrinth, and maybe even a bit of Harold and the Purple Crayon.

The Couch - Joe Harris 47:20
Joe has written for all the major publishing companies, including Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and Dynamite. He published two creator-owned miniseries, Ghost Projekt and Spontaneous, and a graphic novel, Wars in Toyland, with Oni Press.
