Telling to the World - DreamKeepers

An Introduction to the Dreamworld

This post is dedicated to a magnificent graphic novel/comic whichever you call it. I've recently started indulging in web comics a few weeks back. When I went through some popular comics, I stumbled upon the DreamKeepers. At first look, I thought "Wow, this looks great. I gotta check it out". Since then, I've became a big fan of DreamKeepers by David and Liz Lillie. DreamKeepers is an independent project as stated on their website and their primary means of finding more reader support is by word of mouth. Hence, let me introduce you to this stupendous graphic novel saga with an online postcard and a couple of videos:

These 2 videos pretty much sums up the introduction. The post card and videos are new as the authors just completed them somewhere in the middle of this year.

There's plenty of content to look into in this graphic novel saga from its vast history to its astoundingly advanced technology that most scientists could only dream of(pun not intended). Besides, there's set of prelude comics depicting the characters of DreamKeepers in their younger days Here.
Even the gallery is loaded with commissions, fanart and wallpapers that would take hours to go through and admire.

UPDATE ON 25/1/2012: Links removed - I'm encouraging the development of this AWESOME graphic novel through financial support so please buy their stuff Here or donate(please) Here
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Note - If you're wondering what's the bonus, it's Tendril's Demise Special Ad Comic. There's one with and another without colour. The coloured one has edited script from the original black and white.

Until now, only volume 1 of DreamKeepers is free minus the bonus at Graphicly. Luckily, I managed to find volume 2 with bonus through the internet. I do feel kind of guilty for pirating a bit but it's the easiest way I know and cheap too. For those of you who want to contribute to this fantastic work, you can buy the books from Here
or donate if you like. Remember, they are independent authors publishing their work so reader power is their best source of revenue. Last but not least, volume 3 of DreamKeepers is about 60% complete according to the authors' blog, VividStuff

-------------------------Update on 31/12/2011-------------------------
I can't help but feel that something is missing, something I've to express out before the end of the year. NOW I know, it's how I feel about DreamKeepers. Before this I've read an extremely detailed review about this graphic novel saga by a guy who seems to be a rocket engineer by the name of Geo right Here (SPOILER ALERT: New readers click if you dare as there are a few pages from the graphic novel. If you don't want to ruin it for yourself then don't do it for the sake of fulfilment). I had to make it very obvious so as to not be a 'spoiler-er'. The review pretty much reflects and conveys at least 90% of what and how I think of DreamKeepers.

Now for my own expression. DreamKeepers feels like a comic but it is not, no no no, it's just too far-fetched to be categorised as a comic. Kids might think this way but the older audience should know better. The most suitable official term for this is graphic novel as it reflects the intriguing-ness and depth of a novel plus the added wonder and beauty of a graphic work. I'm so anxious to know what comes next in volume 3 and onward that I could not stop thinking about DreamKeepers even for a day. The plot has incalculable potential only the true creators can sum up. There's really no bad, no con, no down-side, nothing unacceptable or inferior about this exceptionally well produced piece of greatness that needs any fixing or improvement. If there are any who defy it, the person must either be a very harsh critique or an escaped mental patient(just expressing here). I really wish I could purchase the book itself but due to financial constraints, I'll have to deal with soft copy on my computer. I'll always be glad to have the chance to witness this simply awesome graphic novel. You will NOT regret reading DreamKeepers. Nuff said, you will check out DreamKeepers

--------------------------------------UPDATE ON (28/3/2013)-------------------------------------------

On 26 March of 2013, the creators of Dreamkeepers have finally decided to release older volumes of the graphic novel for FREE!!!!! - Dreamkeepers Graphic Novel Saga
Skeptical? Take a look for yourself - . To date the Dreamkeepers fanbase still seems kinda weak and is mostly from the authors' home country - based on what the fans said and also the conventions the authors' have participated. I undoubtedly believe this will attract a whole lot more viewers.
