On March 14, we gave you a sneak peak of Andrea Grant's graphic novel, Minx: Dream War. Today, we begin part one of our 17-part serialization of the entire 136-page graphic novel. We're delighted to share with you this talented young Native writer's work. Check back in with us next Saturday for part 2.
Synopsis of Minx: Dream War: They say, “If you die in your dreams, you die in real life…” For ?half-Native American Minx, this is not superstition—it is reality. Once ?a struggling young artist in New York City, Minx’s life is changed forever?after suffering a vicious attack and slipping into a coma. But she doesn’t? wake in the same world she left; rather, she finds herself in Dreamtime, ?the alternate reality that humans inhabit when they sleep. With this ?transition comes great revelation and profound responsibility as Minx ?evolves into a sophisticated warrior, charged with protecting people from? a complex agenda that seeks to transform nightmares into realities and? realities into nightmares. But Minx’s role as vigilante is not born from ?random coincidence: It is the result of elaborate conspiracy, ancient ?prophecy and devastating betrayal.
