I hope we’re not unleashing some sort of nightmare by doing this—no, we’re not going to do it for your book, too—but the folks (editors C. James Bye & Jessa Marsh) behind this really cool anthology, “The Way We Sleep,” which includes a whole list of some of our favorite indie authors and cartoonists, asked us to be a “stop” on their innovative virtual book tour and we said sure. It’s a strong plus that this is being published by Chicago’s Curbside Splendor. And that it includes several folks published in Newcity over the years, including Jeffrey Brown, Robert Duffer, David Heatley and Shannon Wheeler.
So for today’s installment, we bring you Alison Wight’s “Then I Dreamt I Walked Home,” one of the fine contributions from the book. (By the way, it’s a coffee-table book, ten by ten inches, with a bunch of full-color comics and it’s available at your local independent bookstore. Hint-hint, mom.) And just for taking the time to visit us, we’ve included a special not-in-the-book comic by Ms. Wight, “Cocoon,” above. She’s got some sleep issues, it seems.
