Good afternoon everyone,

We're in the final week- the Wayward Astronomer Kickstarter is hurtling to the finish line.

The goal has been nailed, as well as the first stretch goal- and the campaign is only hundreds away from unlocking buttons:

If you haven't already hop in and check it out- time is growing short, and those first-edition hardcovers are going to last long if they make it to your bookshelf.

Time for Lackadaisy- a review by Riiser at the Webcomic Relief!   Liz and I got to pop in for cameos here, and probably had just a liiiiittle too much fun in the process.

Shard of Fate

Brand new art for the live Wayward Astronomer Kickstarter!  

If you haven't yet, take a look- this illustration doesn't really do the story justice, Geo wrote a spectacular novel.  I can scarcely wait for those thumpingly beautiful hardcovers...  E )

KICKSTARTER: The Wayward Astronomer

The Kickstarter is live now- check it out!
We're crowdfunding the release of the first-ever Dreamkeepers literary novel- The Wayward Astronomer, by Kafelnikov.  

If you haven't yet, give it a read!  The early draft is free on Kafelnikov's deviantart:  Complete with murder, intrigue, powers, shock-troopers- and more.  It's a story years in the making.

I couldn't put the book down when I read it- it's a thriller, and a good one.  It could be claimed my opinion is biased, so hear what other readers have to say!  There are some testimonials in the Kickstarter launch video.

I'm excited to contribute some chapter illustrations and other artwork to the novel- come take a look!

Dreamkeepers continues to grow- it's fun to be a part of it.

Faction Contest: Honorary Awards

After reviewing the devastation within the #Dreamkeepers Faction contest, it is my great privilege to present to you, fine ladies and gentlemen:

The Honorary Awards.   

Rarely does a fandom come together in such a celebration of culture, elegance, and achievement.  Let us raise our champagne glasses together, and toast these intrepid meme warriors:

Best Diss of an opposing faction:@Midnight_Blaze cookware

Best Comeback:   Nightmares don't die @Mr_Millstone

Best use of a Meme:  @Mr_Millstone Hillary & Bernie

Most original new Meme: @James Shock Trooper Drones

Most Frantic: @PizzaSkunk  "Fuck That Shit"

Most Retweeted post in #Dreamkeepers: @VoidSlice #Nightmare betrayal

Most 'Liked'  post in #Dreamkeepers: @JohnDeadmen #CCA for Victory

Most Audacious Infiltration of a comment area: Orange Corn in Entertainment Weekly.

And last, but most certainly not least:

Most Epic Fail:  #TEAMGRUNN

I can think of nothing more failed, and more epic, than the entire Team Grunn Faction.  The entire faction is awarded Most Epic Fail.

Remember, only posts for losing Factions could be considered for Honrary Awards.  Thanks again to everyone for a ludicrously fun contest, and thanks to the elites who helped boost the ensuing Operation Sidewinder to 90,000 impressions and 5,000 engagements!

Good times- with more to come.

Next up, we'll be announcing the launch of a new Kickstarter.  Our very own Kafelnikov, leader of the DA Dreamkeepers Group, is crowdfunding the production of the first Dreamkepers print novel- Wayward

What A Twist

When I first had the inkling for a Faction Contest, I had no clue what might happen.    Would it be fun?  Boring?  Would anyone even participate?

Well, holy shit.

Blazing, unhinged chaos.

We made such a mess on twitter:  

Memes, taunts, and even artwork culminated in the day of reckoning yesterday, when only one Faction could emerge victorious:


They crushed it.

It came as a twist to me- I was actually expecting the insurgent reader-created #TeamGrunn faction to win.  But in the end, following Grunn proved to be a drunken, fun, unhinged ticket to failure.   ...Which somehow seems entirely appropriate, now that I think about it.

Time to send free books to everyone in the Troika faction!

But valiant- and hilarious- efforts were made for the competing Factions, and all of those participants are now eligible for Honorary Awards.

If you posted something that you think qualifies, send me a screenshot!  Dreamkeeperscomic(at)

I'll announce Honorary Awards on Monday, after- this weekend.

This weekend, when our ulterior motives underpinning the entire contest are revealed.

What purpose could we have in filling the #Dreamkeepers hashtag with content?

With training readers in hashtag warfare?

Right before the theatrical release of Zootopia?
