DREAMER is based on the true-life events of Frank Johnson, a former Kodak engineer who was tragically impaired in a fire. For over 40 years Frank has shown perseverance and courage as he fought his inner most demons to overcome his disabilities and become a motivational speaker and friend to others like himself. He is the author of the book, From Flawed to Fantastic, How I Turned my Disability Into an A$$et. He was also one of the people written about in the Chicken Soup for the Soul Book: Recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury. Frank continues to be an inspiration to all people. See: ffhero.com Joe Janowicz, creator and writer of DREAMER Comic book, and long time friend of Frank will be joining us too. This story is dedicated to Frank, a comic book fan who is a "real dreamer" in his own life, but also influencing the lives of others. Joe, an accomplished writer himself, wanted to work with Frank to create a Comic Series featuring the plight of people with disability. Photo of Ken Wheaton, artist of the DREAMER comic shown.
