New Dreamer OGN details surface in Nicole Maines interview

Get details on the new Dreamer OGN like release date, and story details too.

Nicole Maines sat down with AIPT yesterday to discuss Dreamer getting an introduction into the DCU via Superman: Son of Kal-El #13. In the interview, Maines and co-writer Tom Taylor discussed Dreamer meeting Superman as well as showed off some preview pages. This is an important moment in DC Comics history as more queer representation, including trans representation, is important!

The interview, which you should totally check out here, also digs into Maines’ upcoming Dreamer OGN with Rye Hickman. Maines said we should expect the OGN sometime in 2023 or maybe as late as 2024 as well as detailed what to expect from the story.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Also, retailers should note final order cutoff for Superman: Son of Kal-El #13 is this Sunday, June 15th.

You can read Maines’ full answers below on this upcoming project!

AIPT: Something I was curious about, Dreamer of course is in the Supergirl show. Are they one-to-one as far as their powers or personality? Will fans of the TV show be able to jump right in?

Nicole Maines: The short answer is yes. Personality-wise, this is Dreamer. This is our girl, this is Dreamer. This is not Arrowverse Dreamer. She has not met Supergirl. She hasn’t met Brainy. She hasn’t met any of ’em. This is a Dreamer who’s been on her own. And she is stepping out of the shadows out of necessity.

And power-wise. Yes. They can jump right in. However, that does not mean she’s not bringing anything new because it simply would not be Dreamer if we just didn’t give her a brand new power out of nowhere.

AIPT: Nicole, you brought up the OGN you’re doing with Rye Hickman. Is there anything you could tell us about that or when it might come out?

NM: We’re aiming for some time in 2023, 2024 at the latest. DC might have other plans, but that’s just me giving myself a wide breadth. This is sort of a retelling of her origin story. We know a little bit about Nia’s history with her family, her sister, and these powers. She’s grown up in this town, this sanctuary for humans and aliens on earth to live together. And so we’re looking at, okay, what does that world look like? How does she fit into it? Or how does she not fit into it? And then, you know, here’s what her family life looked like. This is what a Naltorian on Earth does, as a mother.

It’s all about Dreamer as a young 15-year-old realizing that she has these matrilineal powers, that were meant for her sister and how she reacts to that, and how she goes completely off the deep end. She’s trying to do everything she can to try to protect a sister who doesn’t give that much of a f--k about her in the first place.
