JENNIFER DAYDREAMER: OLIVER
by Jennifer Daydreamer


Mini-comic fan favorite, Jennifer Daydreamer, cracks her world open a

bit more for this exciting new series of stand-alone books from Top

Shelf. Her complete fantasy universe, called Encephalon, is akin to a

dreamier Wizard of Oz or a hallucinatory Harry Potter. Daydreamer has

spent nearly three years studying symbols, fairy tales, schizophrenia

and the various natures of reality in preparation for this new series. …

In this first volume, Oliver, there are three intertwined stories set in

Jennifer's unique quirky landscape that feature the psychic Circus

Zazel, bratty angels, thoughts that walk around, and the title character

Oliver, a small pre-pubescent boy in a devil costume. Jennifer's

drawings are dense, lush and almost vibrate off the page. Don't miss

this exciting full-scale debut by this wholly unique artist.


-- $4.95 (US), 60 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", Color Cover, Black & White &

builds, merges, attends marketing seminars and goes IPO. And his may be
