About this ebook

A Dream Lore for the Anthropocene, the Era of Humans.


It's another dreary day in Cradlewood High when Erin Gunner cops detention for giving the class clown, Rosco, a well-deserved dead arm.


But their lives take an amazing turn when a new guy shows up in school. Going only by 'Zulu', he reveals that he's a time-traveler fighting to save his home: a peaceful, green city in a climate-engineered future.


​How will Zulu try to change the 'past'? Why is he asking Erin, of all people, to help him? And does it have something to do with a dream she's been having?


An original graphic novel, Dreamstormer is an adventure through time that interweaves science-fiction, historical drama and ancient myth to tell a timely tale about humanity's place in the world.



"The concept of time-traveling via dreams to save the world is intriguing..." - Maddie Breeland, Walt Disney Studios


"A visionary concept - truly remarkable... This has the power to inspire young people to dream and envisage the future they want for themselves, and that is completely invaluable. A story that needs to be told today." - Alana Jessop, Spierigfilm

A breath of fresh air! Dreamstormer is an intriguing new comic series that is full of mystery and adventure. But like in our dreams, if you delve a little bit deeper this new series has a strong message. It puts a microscope on some major issues currently facing the world without preaching to the reader. Instead, the writer has intelligently woven these elements into the narrative and never lets them detract from the pacing of the story. In fact, I breezed through the first volume. The main characters are instantly likeable and the new worlds they venture entice your imagination. The art work is a treat too and does justice to the high concepts. I thoroughly enjoyed the first volume and look forward to the second installment!

This graphic novel is an exciting first glimpse at what appears to be a very unique addition to cli-fi (climate fiction). Inception meets Back to the Future - with a touch of Marvel - makes for an excellent base for telling a climate change story in a fresh and engaging way. The illustrations are amazing and really bring the story to life. I can’t wait to see the next instalment.

Cool ideas, interesting characters and world-building. The weight of the climate issue at the heart is well-balanced by the author...it doesn't spoil the ride we share with the protagonists. Looking forward to reading more of their adventures down this utopian/dystopian rabbit-hole. The artwork is really great, too. Great colour palette and style.
