This dream-story is from When I'm Old, and Other Stories, by Gabrielle Bell, 2002. When I'm Old collects her "Book of" series of self-published mini-comics, including "The Book of Sleep." Still haven't found a copy of that, sigh! But I can recommend Old. Though most of it's nondream, it's so bizarre it might as well all-dream. Her recent story "Cody", published in Kramer's Ergot and Best American Comics 2013, was also dream-inspired.
