Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker by Tom DeLongeI really liked this book and definitely want to see what else is out there relating to this story. I know there is a short that I will have to track down.
I liked the art and the variety of characters. The bad guy has a believable origin story that I accept made him as evil as he is. I often have an issue accepting truly evil villains in a story, but not this one.
I gave this four stars for a few reasons. The brother characters role in the dream world was very inconsistent. First, he knew everything even though he had never been there. He even had a girlfriend. Next time, he doesnt remember any of it. The third time, he still doesnt seem to know anything other than the occasional nugget of highly valuable information. He just seemed like a character who was used to provide the main character with what he needed, but never anything more than that. The brothers dont seem to be very close in the waking world either.
I also had an issue with the way Ayo was presented. I love the idea of a dream being a character with a soul, and I love that she can tattoo herself with her soul. But she was clothed and positioned in some pretty sexist ways.
I had a hard time distinguishing between the night stalkers and dream walkers as well. We only saw them each a few times, but I felt like they should have been more distinct from one another.
All that being said, I had no problem suspending my disbelief for this book. The main character is young and seems undriven in the waking world, but finds his niche in the dream world. He is invested in this alternative reality BEFORE he finds out he has special powers in it. He immediately accepts the responsibility and understands how it will impact his life, both waking and sleeping.
I am looking forward to tracking down more content in this universe. I want to meet more good guys or neutral guys. This universe has a ton of potential.
I recommend reading the interview with Tom Delonge at the end of the collected volume. Its presented with concept art and pieces of the animated short. The author seems very passionate about multi-medium storytelling involving multiple creators. It was very interesting and insightful.

So little has been written about this band because only a sap would take this seriously a decade out. It clearly means a lot to DeLonge, so much so that he was willing to kill blink twice! There has to be something to this. Reading post interviews with DeLonge, you get the feeling that he eventually saw blink less as a ship to be steered, and more one to be abandoned. Suck it, Hoppus.
David James Kennedy born July 8, is an American guitarist and songwriter. Box Car Racer , then a side project to Blink , put out its only album in In , Kennedy took a break from music to focus on his career with James Coffee Co, a San Diego-based coffee house of which is he a part owner that specializes in producing handcrafted artisan roasted coffee beans. He used Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucking Pickups, the same bridge pickup Tom uses in all of his signature ES models, in order to emulate Delonge's signature distorted, over driven tone when playing hand muted octave chords, often with delay effects. David played through Mesa Boogie triple rectifier heads and matching cabinets.
