Katerina's father has always been a bit strange. When he falls into a coma from which nobody can rouse him, she winds up dragged after him into the intangible world of dreams— only to find that 'a bit strange' doesn't even begin to cover it.
Sleep is a fairly new webcomic following the adventures of twelve-year-old Katerina Selby as she tries to rescue her father from the dreamworld, all the while being manipulated by a group of mysterious revolutionaries that have kidnapped her for as-of-yet unknown reasons. It updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays with one or two colored pages; start from the beginning here.
Sleep contains examples of:
- All Just a Dream: Or is it?
- Alt Text
- Bare Your Midriff / Chainmail Bikini: Flora. To be fair, she doesn't actually need the armor at all, seeing as she's a dream character, and mainly just wears it for show.
- Dark-Skinned Blond: Flora has very dark skin, pale blue eyes and Mystical White Hair.
- Defiant Captive: Katerina, once she realizes that her Damsel out of Distress gambit isn't going to work, endeavors to make life as miserable for her captors as possible.
- Guardian Entity: the Spirit to Katerina, making her...
- The Kid with the Remote Control. Note that the Spirit has free will to make and execute his own decisions in his capacity as a guide; he just has to obey her if given a direct order.
- Kid Hero: Kat, who's twelve.
- Papa Wolf: Zack throws Flora into a bookcase when she threatens Kat. Not that it actually does all that much...
- Surreal Symbolic Heads: better not tell you now...
