Darcy has gotten trapped inside yet another dream- a side effect of an unfortunate accident- and if she wants to wake up, then she must track down Marie Antoinette and return her to prison so that history may continue as it is supposed to. Unfortunately, the French army is rather uncooperative, and Darcy must summon other figures from her imagination to help her in her quest. But when it comes down to it, can Darcy really deliver a woman to the jaws of Madame Guillotine? Dreamlocked is the final project for my graphic novel class in junior year. Art by Rebecca Mast. Story by Sawyer Traver.
Rumors are flying around the city that a mysterious vigilante has taken the crime problem into his own hands, but Officer Coulson is too busy protecting the people of her city to worry about him.
