|Lora Innes began her critically acclaimed historical fiction work, The Dreamer, as a webcomic in 2007 and it quickly grew a large, devoted following online. Less than a year later, IDW picked up the comic for publication and released the first volume in 2009. The Dreamer has been nominated for three Harvey Awards: Best New Series, Best New Talent (Lora Innes), and Best Cover Artist (Jenny Frison). It was also nominated in the Graphic Novel for Young Adults category in the 2010 Cybils Awards and won the 2010 S.P.A.C.E. Prize.|
In 2009, Innes established the Comic Creators Alliance, a group of over 100 creators united to raise money and awareness about human trafficking in the world today. In 2010 the CCA raised $10,000 for National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Learn more about the CCA here: http://comicalliance.weebly.com.
Innes's work has been featured in American Splendor (Vertigo), Mice Templar (Image), The Uniques and Rival Angels. The Dreamer is the story of Beatrice Whaley, a teenage girl who begins dreaming nightly about the American Revolutionary War. But are these just dreams, or something more?
