From Magnetic Press—
POET ANDERSON: THE DREAM WALKER by multi-platinum recording artist and producer Tom DeLonge. DeLonge, best known as the co-founder and frontman for the legendary punk-pop group Blink-182 and the alternative rock band Angels & Airwaves, created the sci-fi fantasy adventure focusing on Poet Anderson, a “Dream Walker” who roams the realm of dreams, protecting sleepers from dark terrors that threaten to cross over into the waking world. Produced in conjunction with the new Angels & Airwaves album, “THE DREAM WALKER,” the POET comic series will serve as a prequel introduction to the universe.
The POET comic series will introduce the main character, Jonas Anderson, an imaginative slacker teen who discovers an innate ability to lucid dream, opening the doors to an entire universe of wonders and dangers that effect his waking life in ways that will define his fate forever. With a story by DeLonge and Ben Kull (Mission Hill, The Oblongs), the series will be illustrated by award-winning artist Djet, with covers by several comic industry pillars, including Gerald Parel (Iron Man, Captain America), Francisco Ruiz Velasco (Hellboy, Pacific Rim) and Bengal (Naja, Avengers).
DeLonge’s production company To The Stars, Inc. has produced a feature-quality animated short film for POET ANDERSON that premiered as an Official Selection of the 2014 Toronto International ShortFilm Festival, and debuted on iTunes with the Angels & Airwaves album release last month. The album debuted at #1 in 7 countries, including #1 new Rock album on iTunes in the US, UK, and Australia, and in the Top Ten in 30 other countries.
A trailer for the animated short can be seen here:
The three-issue series will debut both digitally and in print this March.
