Greetings from the Kingdom of Denmark!
I am a very new fan of this comic, but I am totally hooked! Right now I am planning on buying teh first issue, and I look forward to seeing more :3

My faveorite dreamer moment so far has to be the introduction of Alexander Hamilton, it may be because I am a shameless hamilton-fan, but still~ XD

Yes, Denmark X3 It is freezing over here though, stupid fall. It is just warm enough for the snow to be turned into slush, and just cold enough for it to fall in the morning when i bike to school.

I wonder why you like it though XD

Hamlet, Hans Christian Anderson, and mostly because of a series I read as a kid called "The Young Underground" by Robert Elmer.

It was about two Danish kids growing up in Denmark during WWII, and the author got all his ideas for the series from stories his parents told him, and from real Danish history books. He had an uncle who was in the underground, that he never got to meet, but he got him into the stories anyway.

The books are absolutely epic, especially the third. They're out of print now though...so they're hard to find all in one.

Are they originally danish? because I think I've heard about them, or something very similar at least.

I'm not sure. I would think the books had made it to you eventually if he did not in fact publish them there first.

We could always ask him-he has contact info on his website.

I found them on a danish online bookstore, apparently they were originally published in the United Sates, but as most literature concerning Denmark it was translated. I suspect they have them in my local libary, I shall check tomorrow(if the snowmageddon that is going on here does not bar my way).

It's about time I stopped lurking and I made myself known. I'm Diana, one of the mighty Haleites. I work at the Nathan Hale Homestead, as a tour guide and a lot of other things paid and unpaid- volunteer co-coordinator (with Natalie- where are you Natalie?), scriptwriter, costume police, occaisonal hearth cook, and so on. I'm from Groton, CT, just across the river from where Nathan taught school in New London. Aaaand my favorite Dreamer moment is Washington with the rock, closely followed by Hammy's intro and of course anything involving Nathan- but especially "Miss Whaley, lift up your skirt!"

I'm Karen from northern Colorado. I think my favorite moment is the foreshadowing when Nathan says that when his time comes he hopes he can risk it all without fear or regret. And I love the little details you include about him, like the fact that he's reading "Cato" :-)

I fell in love with Nathan Hale in 1970, after seeing him portrayed by Brandon de Wilde (who tragically died not long after) in "Young Rebels". I photocopied George Dudley Seymour's "Documentary Life of Nathan Hale" (all 700 pages) before finding my own copy decades later via the Internet. I have a collection of books about Nathan Hale, including a Stuart from the 1850s. I've written an online book about Nathan Hale and John Andre, pointing out the similarities in their lives and deaths (two links between them are Ben Tallmadge and Alexander Hamilton. I found it amazing that a friend of Andre's--Montressor--befriended Nathan just before his death, and a friend of Nathan's--Talmadge--befriended Andre just before his death.) I'll wait to post a link until after I've been here a while.

Anyway, I've been enjoying so much seeing the characters I've loved for so long coming to life in these wonderful graphic novels.

Hi, I'm Kal--I'm also FaerieCarousel on deviantArt, so if you frequent that site or know me from there, hi again! I'm attending university in Hawaii right now, so Honolulu's my temporary town, I guess Smile

My favorite Dreamer scene is probably the gorgeous panel where Bea and Alan are each sitting on one side of the door and looking exhausted . . . the coloring was beautiful, the poses so full of character, and the emotional impact really strong. It was the moment I really got hooked, I think, though I was liking the comic quite a lot up to that point anyway. The Dreamer was the first webcomic I ever found, and it remains my favorite Very Happy

Dialogue-wise I still love Alan's 'You look like a memory' line, and of course Nathan and his spontoon!

Hi!!! It's Half Moon! For anyone who's new I'm the seventeen year old that's been following this comic since Nathan's Birthday last year. I'm homeschooled and hyper and not really happy about what has to happen to Nathan soon... No But at least we still have all the issues with him in it... Very Happy "God forgive me! God forgive me!"

@karensdr: That's one of my favorite scenes in the book, it's so chiils inducing. You seem really cool.I've never heard of 'Young Rebels' and now I want to find it. I'm so envious that you have a Stuart from the 1850s, that's so lucky! I want to read your online book, it sounds like an engrossing read, so you know you have someone waiting for you to post a link to it!

@Kal: I don't really have anything special to say except I went to school in Hawaii for a while too, I practically lived on the Ala Moana beach, and I miss it. So high five, Hawaii school attending fellow.

Erin, DC, Last Panel. Oh so very much. Also this one. Because "DAWWWW."

Also, hadn't realized this but someone else has a Magikarp pic. This pleases me to no end and reaffirms my belief that this is a good place and I will like it here.

Hiya! The name is giggles or gigs as I'm known around the net. I'm from Texas and I'd have to say the introduction of General Washington was my favorite moment to date.

Oh and anyone from LFG should know who I am Razz

Well, I guess I'll introduce myself here before I start posting anywhere else. I'm Etoile, a high school senior from a suburb of Chicago. My favorite moments that haven't been listed yet (I can't just pick one) are: the huge picture of Bea and Alan sitting on the dock looking at the ships, and every other "scenery panel", but that's my favorite; and (*gasp* a modern-day moment!) Ben being a ham with the costumes and proving that he will be a perfect Mercutio.

And since there are a lot of current or former homeschoolers here, I'll add that I was homeschooled for all of my life before high school.
