worth the wait! The art is as engaging (not to mention
adorable) as ever, and the story just keeps getting better.
The story isn't predictable, and its serious without being
overbearing, with an exciting yet believable backstory.
The plot moves at a good pace, not too slow but not too
fast to follow. I love it!
to Starfall", like a blockbuster movie sequel,
is everything that made its prequel great, while also standing
on its own as a triumph of originality and entertainment.
Bring the popcorn to this one. Reading one of David Lillie's
comics is like watching an animated film. You can imagine
each character's voice along with their words, almost hear
footsteps and the chatter of crowds along with every sound
effect, and nearly get sucked into every movement in every
combat sequence. The only thing missing is a musical score,
and I solved the problem by listening to one of Howard Shore's
soundtracks. Trust me, that'll do the trick.
Vivid is independent the content can contain whatever
it wants, mixing a generally clean plotline with a few hilarious
vulgar jokes, bright, lovely cartoonish characters and world
with dark, disturbing plot urns, and generally doing everything
and anything to make the plot perfect- nothing to excess,
nothing in lacking.
already a great book, but Volume Two takes it to a new level.
The story, the characters, the colouring, the art, everything
have evolved. I can thumb through the book over and over
and I still discover new details and its always fun
to read the sarcastic comments of Namah or the strange split
personality conversations of Wisp.
Keep up the magnificent work.
at work right now
but my friend just gave me volume 2 and I read it durning
my lunch break, (in one hour =^_^=) any was just wanted
to let you known that you made my life that much better.
The story is getting better and better. I really feel like
I'm in a differnt place, and I don't get into book or manga
that much, but you guys are just pwning everything. On top
of that the art work just blows my mind everytime I look
at it. Keep it up, or I'll hunt you down and let my ferret
lose on you ^_^
Every panel is
brilliantly and, yes, vividly colored, with faint traces
of the original lineart that adds to its unique style. If
the designs are cartoonish, it is all for the better- I've
never seen such a high level of expression reached in any
Two introduces new characters for both sides, from the
sly, sexy, sassy Indigos to the manically schizophrenic
Wisp and the creepy, threatening Nabonidus. Each character
is as unique as his or her physical appearance, all the
way down to the dialogue.
It is all done subtly and
is shown, not told, through the behavior and dialogue along
Dreamkeepers is a fast-paced experience that makes time
fly away without any notice, unlike parts of every other
graphic novel Ive read, all of which contain at least
some bits of long-winded plot that are not especially engaging.
But even though the read is quick, it is almost an addiction,
sucking you back in to read it again, but the second time
the stunning panache of the visuals can be fully appreciated,
as well as the miniscule details and background motions
that Lillie never skimps on.
finished reading Dream Keeper 2 and I must say
Keep it up
Thanks for a wonderfull comic

When I read the first book I was instantly hooked
by the astounding art and captivating artwork, so naturally
when the second book arrived in my mailbox a thrill swept
though me- for I knew that I was about to embark upon a
journey into the world of what is truly the best anthropomorphic
comic...no comic period, out there!
I tell furs all
the time about DK, and it truly should be the "Harry
Potter" of the anthropomorphics meta genera! -F
I loved it! Great plot line and I love the way you
finally let some info in on the Dreamkeepers' situation.
Lovely details and you ended it really nicely. Brilliant!
Vincent/Cuddles is so cute. Wrap him up, I'll take 2! Nabonidus
actually looks like a really awesome bad guy. I'm impressed.
Indigo girls. Smart, sexy, clever. Need I say more.
It's beautiful! You did a wonderful job! The
story and characters are developing nicely and you're bringing
questions to my mind that I won't ask because it's more
fun to wonder
what future volumes will bring.
Anyway, I love the development of Mace's crush on Lilith.
peeks and glances, and the way he tries to stop himself
has a combination of Michael Jackson's awe-inspiring
and meticulously detailed landscapes and cities, Hayao Miyazaki's
memorable, human-and-yet-animal characters, Guillermo Del
Toro's nightmarish villains and monsters, and Steven Spielberg's
timeless and epic stories, while of course continuing to
bring something entirely new and expressly David Lillie
to anyone who cares for a great read. It also has risqué,
shonen-esque humor to it which, while appreciated by adult
readers like me, puts Dreamkeepers firmly out of reach of
children. It ain't exactly explicit, but it ain't no Disney
finally, the introduction of every new character (and
there are quite a few) is done seamlessly, with iconic scenes,
and nearly everyone from the first installment is back and
looking better than ever. One read will not be enough to
soak up everything, of course. After writing this review,
I'm going back for another go. And after I'm done with that,
I'll check to see if Vol.3 is ready for pre-orders yet.
Hey, you never know...
recieved the second issue of dreamkeepers last night
wich i promptly read and will most likely read several more
time XD posativly love it and i believe the wait was well
worth it. yes most definitly
i look farward to the next issue i can barely wait
I just finished reading the second volume of Dreamkeepers,
and it was amazing! The plotline and the characters just
keep you guessing, and it makes the story so intriguing.
And the graphics and color were amaaaazing! ^o^ Once I started
reading it, I couldn't put it down. And somehow, no matter
how many times I read them, they NEVER get old! :] Thank
you so much for a great installment to the series, and I
can't wait for the next volume. :D

volume 2 and read it great blows my mind man great story
and art i cant wait for volume 3
This is a fantastic Epic story! The story line is
so grasping and I love the balance that is used. There is
so much intensity, passion, combat, and so much more! Im
enveloped in the DreamKeepers world when I begin reading.
Done read it twice and I plan to read it again!
-A J S
did get the comic and LOVE IT! The Forward was AWESOME
Glad the comic made it and didn't get butchered into crud
I love the story, characters, in depth plot, story twist
and turns, the beautiful artwork and coloring, environment
has a real FEEL to it, Just really great stuff!
The past weekend, I went on a camping trip with some
of my firends. One of them, however, was wasn't talking
on the ride there, his head behind a book. I asked what
he was reading, and he said Dreamkeepers. He said it was
the second book and he had just got in the mail. He also
had the first one, and I asked if I could read it.
I was immediatly hooked.
I read the all the chapters within that first day, and lots
of conversations about your amazing story took place. Mainly
about how we all laughed about the great humor. "...Shock
Troopers." "Are they smiling?" "No."
That was porbably my favorite part, humor wise
than the humor, the entire plot and the charcters are absolutly
amazing. Me and my friends are all eager for more information
about upcoming books as well as the prequal you do on your
David, your story is amazing and you will
make your book famous, just give it a little time.
tell you right now that I had high-expectations for
the graphic novel and they weren't just met, they were blown
away! The most recent three chapters are just as exhilarating
(if not more) than the first. Awesome job you two.
Obviously, tons of hard work and dedication have gone
into your stunning comic and it totally shows. I'm sure
you have about 300 completely satisfied customers with their
pre-orders in hand (or soon-to-be in hand)
have two great friends who aren't even "furries"
and they are absolutely hooked on your comics as well.
just got my
book last night around 8:30 pm and i love it both the story
telling and the artwork are both surpureb and amazing both
of you are doing great work on this comic. I love the little
sketch of wisp on the back of the front cover . -M S
arrived a couple of days ago but I wanted to give myself
some time to read over it a few times and really let it
sink in, so I could step up and give you guys my review...
which probably won't be much of a review considering I loved
every last inch of it down to the tiny cracks in the ice
volcano on it ^^; So here goes nothing.
The first thing I noticed was the shift in the artwork
itself. I mean, aside from general improvements as far as
detailing the backgrounds and whatnot. The coloring really
stood out. All the environments, and the characters are
so imaginative. I don't believe I've seen any like them
The Indigos blew me away. They are fun to even just
look at. Every single panel that had them in it automatically
Scinter is bad-ass. At first I thought
he was just kind of there. But his moment when
especially liked the diverse settings in this one, from
that icy cave to the snowy mountains to the bustling festival
at sunset, each of which was beautifully and imaginatively
rendered... Oh, and also imaginative were the new characters,
monsters, and even the anonymous "peace" troopers...
You know, I know I've mentioned this before, but now more
than ever, I say that DreamKeepers would believably make
a cool video game
The additional materials in the
back are very cool too: the cultural notes and the making-of
So much goodness bundled up in one book,
I can't stop raving about it.
Well I just finished Vol. 2, and I have to say it
was just as good as Vol. 1.... well I have to say that it
was actually better then Vol 1! I love the Indigos that
were introduced, and the art on Star Fall is amazing! The
story progressed at a nice pace, and was easy to follow.
The action was really fun to read, and look at the art and
flowed really well. I can't wait till Vol. 3 comes out!
Thankfully Prelude is around to keep me entertained each
week till Vol. 3 is finished up! Thanks again for such a
got through reading the 2nd graphic novel of Dream Keepers
by David Lillie & Liz Thomas. This is a great anthropomorphic
series featuring very animated looking characters. Like
a cross between Don Bluth and Disney, this new adventure/fantasy
is really exceptional comic.
I just got done reading both books and I haven't
felt that way in a decade. Wow. I don't really know how
to explain it. I'm really glad you pushed your idea through.
I can't wait to read the next volume. Thank you for sharing
