Jonas Anderson is a typical slacker teen following in the footsteps of his aimless older brother, Alan. When the boys stumble on a secret technique for lucid dreaming, they find themselves in wild world full of fantastic possibility - and hidden dangers. Created by Tom DeLonge, founder and frontman of the bands Blink-182 and Angels and Airwaves, this fantastic adventure traces the origin of the mysterious guardian Dream Walker known only in whispered circles as "Poet."

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Apr 3, 2015

    Overall, this is a comic simply bursting with potential. This first issue covers a lot of groundwork and introduces readers to a world they won't quickly forget. There are a lot of questions left to be answered by the end of it, but that just left me wanting more from this series, in a good way. I'm very excited to see what's next for this book and would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes their comics to veer towards the surreal and the strange. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Schenker Apr 4, 2015

    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. Read Full Review

    DeLonge and Kull have created an awesome experience here. This is more than just a collection of the comic mini-series, this is a representation of the beginning of an exciting sci-fi franchise, filled with unique character, amazing designs and an ending that leaves the reader hoping the series continues on. Djet shows off a style that looks so fluid, so slick, it looks like the art could leap right off an animated film itself. My only gripe is that we only get three issues here, but the art book aspect does looking amazing as well. Poet Anderson- The Dream Walker is a great introduction into DeLonges world- from sequential art, a look at the animation process, and even on a musical level- this is art on all fronts.

    I really enjoyed the animation that this is a prequel to, and so far,even though it is just one issue, it is living up to its counterpart. Turn on some Angels and Airwaves in the background and it's almost like watching another Poet Anderson story!
