Radical showed BF a preview to Radical’s Jake the Dreaming Free Comic Book Day Preview issue, featuring excerpts and art from the upcoming illustrated novel by Adam Freeman and Marc Bernardin, with art by Andrew Jones.

Jake the Dreaming tells the story of Jake, a ten-year-old boy with a chronic habit of daydreaming. Constantly drifting off in class, at home, and even during Little League, Jake has become the outcast of the fourth grade. All that changes, however, when Jake dreams of saving a neighbor’s son from a monster and, to his shock, the boy thanks him for it the next day. Soon after, Jake learns that he is his generation’s “Dreaming”—the chosen one with the ability to enter others’ dreams and save their souls from an evil creature known only as Nocturnus. Now, in order to fulfill his new role and protect the world as he knows it, Jake must master the ways of the Dreaming World and defeat Nocturnus before he gains enough power to put the Waking World to sleep forever.

Radical is especially proud of Jake the Dreaming in that it is the first Radical title to be printed in the revolutionary new illustrated novel format, featuring pages of prose alongside spectacular, full-color illustrations. The first full-length issues of Jake the Dreaming will be released in December of 2011; we very much encourage you to share this news, as well as any impressions you may have of this preview. Should you choose to write a review of any of these titles, please contact me with a link to the final article.
