I spent my whole afternoon reading this webcomic called The Dreamland Chronicles. I don’t know what about it caught me this time around, since I’ve had people point me at it before and didn’t pay attention to it, but somehow after reading the first fifty pages yesterday it managed to invade my dreams (which is unusual). At the moment it holds the rank of #7 on Top Web Comics, and it deserves that position.
It’s the story of a guy who travels to Dreamland whenever he sleeps and how he gets caught up in saving it while trying to help his friends and lady love.
Dreamland Chronicles has been updating on a regular, every weekday basis since 2006 and is done with 3D computer animation technology, which is a ton of work. It has a grand scale of plot and action with good characters. Over the years the art has gone from pretty good but stiff CG to having panels that look like they came out of a legit Dreamworks or Pixar movie.
The beginning is a bit rough for the first 2-3 chapters, but that tends to be the case with a lot of webcomics when they’re starting out. Some of the character interaction didn’t make sense, but once the rough patch was over the characters stayed truthful to themselves and made a lot more sense.
Go check it out! It’s got romance, adventure, beautiful hard work, and fantasy all rolled into one story. It also manages to stay pretty clean and family-friendly as well! I give it four stars out of five.
