An awesome Trailer for Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker has been released by alternative band Angels and Airwaves featuring “Poet, a ‘Dream Walker’ who roams the realm of dreams, protecting sleepers from dark terrors that threaten to cross over into the waking world.” The Sci-fi epic explores the concept of lucid dreaming through the eyes of Main Character, Jonas Anderson.
Angels and Airwaves’ “Dream Walker” album will serve as a concept soundtrack, with songs being about lucid dreaming and Poet’s universe. The Short film featuring Poet Anderson will premiere as an Official Selection of the 2014 Toronto International ShortFilm Festival, along with the Angels & Airwaves album release on December 9th.
In addition to the short film Magnetic Press announced yesterday they are producing and publishing the original graphic novel titled “POET”, created by Blink-182 co-creator and Angels and Airwaves frontman Tom DeLonge. The Story will be written by DeLonge and Ben Kull (The Oblongs), Illustrated by award-winning artist Djet Stéphane and covers by seasoned comic book artists Gerald Parel(Iron Man, Captain America), and Bengal(Naja, Avengers).
“We were immediately captured by the ideas behind POET, and the visual direction set by the animated short just blew us away,” says Magnetic Press’s Publisher, Mike Kennedy. “Working with Tom to help explore this universe he has imagined has been wonderful, and we’re really excited to draw readers into the Dream World with him!”
The Three-Issue Series will debut this upcoming spring both digitally and in print!
