Stunning, filled with a kinetic energy. A comic series to look out for. - The Nerdist Based on the award-winning animated short film, and inspired by the Angels&Airwaves album The Dream Walker by multi-platinum recording artist TOM DELONGE (cofounder and front man of the world-famous punk-pop band Blink-182), this graphic novel collects the critically acclaimed mini-series written by DeLonge and co-writer Ben Kull (Father of the Pride, Mission Hill) and illustrated by animation sensation Djet. The prequel adventure chronicles young Jonas Anderson's first foray into The Dream World, where he discovers his destiny to become Poet Anderson, a guardian Dream Walker who protects innocents while they sleep from the horrors their own dreams could pose in the Waking World. This beautifully-illustrated adventure is supplemented with an in depth interview with DeLonge, exploring the many facets of fringe culture, dream theory, and the philosophy behind his various storytelling avenues. Also included are dozens of concept and design illustrations created during the development of the animated short film and current feature film pre-production. This hardcover volume will also include a CD mounted inside the back cover containing a soundtrack of previously unreleased instrumental and b-side tracks by DeLonge and Angels&Airwaves."

COMIC REVIEW: 4 STARS
I’m so happy I decided to read this comic. When I first read the synopsis I felt drawn to it, because all the science fiction in it, and I needed something different. I usually read romance and erotica, and when it comes to comics, it’s commonly superheroes, and Poet Anderson didn’t fit in any of this categories, so I said: Let’s give it a try! I ended up liking it so much, the story was very interesting, and the illustrations were my favorite part of it all. The whole comic was so dark but yet the colors were bright, and the drawings were very defined and beautiful. The illustrations made me felt like watching a movie the whole time. It was full of action, and expectation and of course, lots of surprises.
This comic is the prequel of the movie Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker, which I haven’t watched yet. It features how Jonas Anderson becomes into Poet Anderson, one powerful Dream Walker who can travel between the Dream World and the Waking World. Jonas was introduced to this world by his brother Alan, and during one of their travels to the other world, and along with Ayo—one beautiful girl from the Dream World, taught him how things were in the other world and how they would affect the people in the Waking World. Of course things get complicated for Jonas, Alan and Ayo, but I’m sure everything that happens are the motives for Poet Anderson in the movie.
In summary, this comic was great. Awesome illustrations, great storyline and characters. 100% recommended.
Hallo there Angy, hope your New Year is super great.
