This Just In: “Dream Train” a new Next-Door Neighbor Comic

July 1st, 2008 by Larry Smith

dream-train-next-door-neighbor.jpgTim Hall teams up to tell his story with illustrator Rami Efal in the seventh installment of Next-Door Neighbor, the lyrical Dream Train. A lot of what we’ve showcased on NDN so far have been intense, voyeuristic, and occasionally creepy tales. Dream Train, however, is a quieter story about Hall’s neighbors Virginia (aged 89) and Ralph (91), who have to leave the house they’ve lived in since 1884 in order to be closer to their son. It’s lovely. Don’t forget to click on the link to the video on panel 7.

Read the first six NDN installments from the archives. Enter our What’s Your Next-Door Neighbor Story? contest and your true tale could be illustrated by one of the artists, running as the final installment of the series.

    Hi Larry,

    As Dream Train’s proud place atop the NDN pedestal winds down to make room for the next story, I just wanted to thank you, and the readers who left such nice comments, for your support. I’m so glad to be a part of this. Keep up the great work.
