Jonas and Alan Anderson’s world has come crashing down around them, and their only hope lies within the crumbling alternate-reality of the Dream World, where Jonas will have to face the dark evil of REM, and assume his destiny as Poet Anderson!
Conceived and written by Tom Delonge (Blink-182, Angels & Airwaves) and Ben Kull (Father of the Pride, Mission Hill), and illustrated by animation sensation Djet, this original comic series reveals an epic, ageless race for immortality, power, and purpose.
The comic book prequel to the award-winning animated short film! In the Dream World, power and adventure belong to the Lucid Dreamers, while Night Terrors haunt the troubled and the helpless. A lucky few are watched over by mysterious guardians. The protectors of our shared unconscious lives are known as… …Dream Walkers. Latchkey brothers Jonas and Alan Anderson have discovered a Universe beyond our own, one that can only be reached through dreams. A tangible world filled with fantastic and frightening things, accessible only to those lucky few with the ability to lucid dream. There, they will find not only mind-blowing adventure, but the key to a vast secret history and their role in the protection of The Waking World. Usually when I hear about a well-known musician crossing over into comics, I cringe a bit. The results have been mixed with only two or three exceptions. Tom DeLonge (of Blink182 and Angels and Airwaves) enters the comic world with this new series that’s also an animated film. The result? Really good. Backed up by writer Ben Kill and artist Djet, the result is a beautiful debut that blew me away with its visuals. The story is very fun taking two brothers into a dream world, something the visuals are perfect for. What’s fun is one knows the world well, and explains it to his brother, so as he learns the rules, we learn the rule. The subtle differences is some of the most entertaining things, and the world just feels like an amazing dreamscape. The story is solid, but Djet’s art is absolutely stunning. It perfectly matches the animated film, with a seamless transition from one to the other. Just visually amazing, completely beautiful. This original comic series reveals an epic, ageless race for Immortality, Power, and Purpose. I went in not knowing what the expect, and honestly having some trepidation as well. I came away wanting more right away. The series’ first issue sets up an amazing world, and I can’t wait to see where the series goes from here.
