Hey guys! I just got word that Tom DeLonge of Blink 182 and Angels and Airwaves is here at SDCC to promote his new comic, Poet Anderson! Above you can see all the neat stuff he’ll be doing at the convention!
Haven’t heard about Poet Anderson? Here are some neat facts about it:
– Published by Eisner nominee Magnetic Press and Tom’s entertainment company To The Stars…
– Has critically acclaimed art by the phenomenal DJET
– Written by Tom and Ben Kull (who is also writing the Poet Anderson feature screenplay)
– Creative and young, with the perfect pinch of darkness
– A story about a pair of brothers who have discovered a Universe beyond our own and can only be reached in dreams, where they discover their role in helping protect the Waking World.
– The comic is a prequel to the novel trilogy which will be in stores October 6th
-Is part of a larger multi-media project which is preceded by an award-winning animation and critically acclaimed album The Dream Walker by Angels & Airwaves
Poet Anderson …Of Nightmares grips readers from the very first page, telling the story of two recently orphaned teen brothers on a journey to a new life. The elder brother, Alan, is heading to a job at the Hotel Eden in Seattle, where both their parents worked before they were killed in a horrific plane crash and younger brother Jonas, the misfit of the two, returns to the “normalcy” of high school. But normal is nowhere in sight as unseen forces wreck their lives in every possible way, literally and figuratively, with another nightmarish car accident. This tragedy leaves Alan in a coma and young Jonas left to fight for both their lives against enemies from a dark night world.
It will be released on October 6th–but stop by the above sites and learn more about it from Tom this weekend!
