DreamCatcher Readership Survey!

Hey guys! I created a little survey to see what kinds of folks I have reading this comic, and I'd really appreciate it if you could take a couple minutes to fill it out! You can find it here!


If you like DC for its writing and characters, check out my webnovel Kody over on Tapas! It's got vampires who are mortal, were-creatures that aren't wolves, and some reluctant humans that have to put up with them all.

Would you still read DC if it moved away from a traditional comic format? (There would still be art.)

I Say...

Hazumirein says,

Well, 5 AM isn't really my favorite time to upload comics, but eh. Had some technical difficulties that delayed this one even more than I expected.

Also, yes, she did just spit in his face.

Question of the Update: I dunno, what do you think Morgai's plan to get Artturo to go away actually is?

Song of the Week: "My Temperature's Rising" - The Audition. There are sort of two ways to take this song (watch the video), which is exactly why I'm putting it here.

And You Say...

LouLouBaBa says,

Hmm... Dae seems a lot more comfortable on top... I woule be surprised too if someone spat in my eye, but Evil-Dae on the last panel looks like something is happening, I dont know... let your imagination run wild... hehehe

wolfear (Guest) says,

Spit to the face or better yet direct hit in the eye = unexpected.
Reaction jerk up and letting up pressure. Allowing for groin kick or headbut.

ZZ Digital says,

Distract him long enough for Dae to wake up inside? Wait for everyone else to wake up? Make him so angry he explodes? Something.

Lily (Guest) says,

Which way does the panels go? I'm a tad bit confused

crazyhead42 says,


1. OMG, Arturro looks so turned on in that last panel. Just saying.
@LouLouBaBa - called it.
@wolfear - would that be a "knee jerk reaction"?
@ZZ Digital - I don't have much for you in terms of joke, sorry. My best guess is that she is about to use the dream stone to get them both somewhere private.
@lily - I believe the panels go from left to right first, then go from top to bottom. Nothing too fancy.

crazyhead42 says,

Wait, did he manage to cut his hand THROUGH the gloves? (well, I suppose that is why he was WEARING gloves in the first place...)

crazyhead42 says,

Fine, I'm tripple commenting

Why on earth does Artturo look so much like a spike daemon? Horns? check. Wings? surprisingly on the spike daemon, so check. ear shape? Check. Eyes? Different shapes, similar color schemes.


TCRanch says,


I-I-I don't know! can't wait to see! also, aotu winner?

Hazumirein says,

Okay...I'm gonna try to answer all of these in one go.

@LouLouBaBa: I honestly didn't give a second thought to that last panel but now that you mention it...probably could have found a better way to do that haha. (I was gonna say something concerning Dae and being on top too, but it's probably better if I don't hahaha).

@Lily: Left to right, top to bottom...three rows of two panels. I actually thought this was one of my less confusing panel arrangements haha.

@crazyhead42: For starters, Featherscales bit him and yes, he broke through the glove a little. And since I'm not gonna go back and comment on old pages: Residents of any world can enter the gate to their world at will, though most never leave, while guests need a "key" like a Dreamstone. Artturo/Dragon-Dae is totally unrelated to the spike demons, but I do see the design similarities you mentioned. I'm unoriginal. No comment on Arashi's level of humanity or lack thereof. No, Daemian and Xavier are very different characters though come to think of it they do share some personality traits, so Xan sees Dae as an older brother figure in a way. Finally, can't help you with the tail thing haha.

@TCRanch: I meant to mention this in the author comment, but I'll announce the winner next update.

Kinmotsu_no_Yoryuu says,

Ketchup, Kitties, and Questions, Oh My!

aaaand I just caught up!

Question! Will we ever see a half cat?

Lily (Guest) says,

Oh that's it. I thought it was that way but I thought I was wrong because some of the actions looked unconnected and odd. Sorry about that x3

crazyhead42 says,

But @Hazumirein , HOW is the traveling through the gate accomplished? You say they can do so "at will". Does that mean they can use their willpower to open the door? Or does that mean when they get to the door, the lock simply does not exist to them?
Also, one more thing I thought of last night: how did the other half animals start? I don't think there's a rabbit traveler, yet there are half rabbits.
AND I WANT A TAIL! (Though I don't want to reach maximum tailatude, cause then I'd be a snake.) [If you don't want me to say it, don't bring it up. I will be stubborn about this. Why? Cause I want one. Unlike wings, they don't cause sleeping issues, but unlike everyone elses' mine would be EXISTANT!]

Hazumirein says,

@Kinmotsu_no_Yoryuu: Maya's a half-panther, I think she's the only half-cat of any sort that's an important character. If you're talking about like, a house cat, who knows, there might be one in the background somewhere.

@crazyhead42: Okay, maybe "at will" was bad wording. I just meant that if they live in that world and find themself in the Gate World for some reason, they can go back through the gate to their world without needing a key--like you said, the lock basically doesn't exist to them. However, it does require some kind of special thing like a Dreamstone or some power to open the gate /out/ of their world in the first place, so most never leave or even realize that other places exist. There are some exceptions and portals floating around that can bypass the Gate World entirely and are direct paths between worlds, but they're well-hidden and typically not the best way to go. And that's another story entirely and not a concept I need to explore in DC. Also, you'll find out more about the origins of the half-creatures later.

crazyhead42 says,

@Hazumirein Okay, so that explains Luna's ability to enter and leave the world the first time. How did she get in the second time then? Does the old man have some form of magic to go with his orb that opens a portal into the gate world?

Hazumirein says,

@crazyhead42: That was one of those things that I didn't have totally thought out in the beginning of the comic, but yeah, Ooji can do a lot of weird shit. He's special. You'll find out more later in the comic.

crazyhead42 says,

@Hazumirein PLEASE tell me he's called a "Gate Keeper". Well, I guess only if it's true.

DeathDragon (Guest) says,

Uh oh. This is either good or not good.
Or very very bad...

Comments, anyone?
