'Poet Anderson' by Tom DeLonge and Ben Kull is based on a short film. It's a pretty dark story, but I liked it and the art is pretty stunning.
Young Jonas Anderson finds he can traverse the dream world with his older brother, Alan. They meet a young woman who lives there, named Ayo, but they also meet the evil ruler of this dreamland. His name is Rem. He likes to take over unsuspecting dreamers and cross over into our world. He sees something in Jonas and renames him Poet Anderson. He's afraid Poet Anderson will become a Dream Walker, someone who protects others in the dream world, so he wants to control him. Poet will lose quite a bit along the way.
This graphic novel is the prequel to a short cartoon. The artwork by Djet is very much in the style of that short, which means it is pretty amazing. I think it's an interesting, albeit pretty dark, read. It's a bit more style than substance, but it's got good style.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Magnetic Press, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
