The Dream Walker - Poet

Blink-182 Frontman Writing Dream Walker Comic Prequel

Magnetic Press will be publishing Poet, a graphic novel series from Blink-182 co-founder and frontman Tom Delonge, released in conjunction with The Dream Walker, the upcoming album from Delonge’s other band Angels & Airwaves.

The project is billed as a “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,” and will act as a prequel to the universe established in the album.

The multimedia rerelease will also include a rather awesome looking animated short, the trailer for which is available for your consumption. Enjoy.

While I’m not a big fan of DeLonge’s music, the trailer’s anime take on Little Nemo has definitely piqued my interest in the comic, which will be co-written by Ben Kull (Mission Hill, The Oblongs) and illustrated by Djet Stéphane, with covers by the likes of Gerald Parel (Iron Man, Captain America) and Bengal (Naja, Avengers).

Carl Doherty has written about movies, video games, comic books and literature for almost a decade, forging ill-informed critiques for numerous websites, blogs and publications that no one has ever heard of. His debut novel, the epic fantasy comedy Welcome to The Fold, is available now on Kindle here (UK) and here (US).
