Shuteye Six Tales of Dreams and Dreamers
by Sarah Becan
Published by Shortpants Press
300p, brick red ink, 6"x9"
"An explorer deserts his company and finds himself adopted by a mysterious tribe. A drifter, spinning lies for a bartender, is astonished when his lies start coming true. A student and her estranged father tenuously reconnect after they swap dreams one night. Sarah’s second graphic novel is a series of six darkly intimate comics: stories woven together with the thick fibers of dreams, powerfully real, yet entirely imagined. Shuteye is the Kickstarter-funded graphic novel that collects all six issues of Sarah’s Shuteye minicomics series, with additional material to tie them all together."
