Another lost comic : "Sleep to Dream"

Found another Octobriana's lost comic, see low-resolution preview of the page 1 below :




Back to 1997 - Tiger Mountain offered a comic preview called Filling In The Blanks!

The comic, called 'Sleep To Dream', was written by Stuart Taylor and drawn by Dave Roberts. It was supposed to launch a new comic series, around major plot lines from the Revolution Comics mini-series (see Alchemy Texts).

In this comic Octobriana's sidekick was Carl Malone, a 40 year old UFO and conspiracy nut. He was also the writer of "The Conspirator" - a magazine dedicated to UFO, aliens, conspiracy (obviously) and paranormal in general.

Now the interesting part was that - "The aim of the story was to establish Octobriana as a figurehead for the oppressed. Octobriana fights for the ideal that everyone should be free to express their own ideas and philosophies, without fear of oppression." - those were the words of the writer and publisher Stuart Taylor.

Unfortunately neither his mail contact is working  - nor Dave Roberts
