About this project
What is this about?
Nightmare Warriors is a comic book written and created by Andjelko Napijalo, art by Nenad Cviticanin and colored by Maksim Strelkov.
What is the story about?
This story is about a young boy by the name of Gage Hunter whose parents were killed in a car accident. After his parents’ funeral Gage was approached by a mysterious man asking him to come to an abandoned lighthouse to learn the real truth about his parents.
Gage goes to the lighthouse where he learns about a secret organization called the "DNA", Department of Nightmare Affairs. Gage discovers that he belongs to the line of Nightmare Warriors, people of special pedigree that can travel into other peoples' dreams thorough their subconscious. Gage also learns that his parents got trapped in Dreamland, the place where all dreams occur.
Gage ventures into Dreamland to find his parents and on this journey he meets his Dream Team, the team of nightmare-warrior assistants that live in Dreamland. The team consists of an intelligent but very attitudinal owl by the name of Hugo. Hugo is not just intelligent and attitudinal but is also scared of everything. Koala-San is another member of the Dream Team who tends to spend his entire time sleeping in his hammock or during very important missions. Koala-San is a ninja koala bear. The last member of the team is Doctor Klaus Notagan (pronounced: Not Again) whose inventions often fail, misfire or both. With the "help" of his Dream Team, Gage ventures into other kids dreams where he fights evil forces while continuously searching for clues about his parents disappearance.
Gage and his gang of misfits will take you on a trip through amazing landscapes and cities of Dreamland where they will face some of Dreamland's most notorious bad guys.
What makes this comic book different from all others?
This story was created from my personal experiences. I experienced nightmares as a kid growing up in a war-torn country. A lot of love and passion went into creating this story to make it fun, memorable and meaningful. Every detail in this book was created for a reason and every single detail has a purpose. I also hid clues throughout the comic so people can discover them if they wish. This was done to get people more involved in the story and if they are willing, to learn something new. The storyline is complex, yet very easy to follow. If issue #1 ever gets printed through this Kickstarter campaign, I will be posting a 10-question quiz on our Facebook page and the first three people that answer all questions correctly will receive some cool prizes. Answers and clues to all 10 questions are hidden somewhere in the book and they cannot wait to be discovered.
How long is the story?
I managed to condense the book material into 10 comics of similar size (approximately 40 pages per comic) including extras.
Tell me about the villains?
Volume one will feature five scary villains: Hangman Bill, Clodvic the clown and his killer rabbit Bob, Animalia, Count Von Chello and the Tool Master.
What happens in issue #1?
Gage learns the truth about his parents and joins the DNA. He ventures into Dreamland where he meets his Dream Team. Gage confronts Hangman Bill, notorious villain from Dreamland. Gage and his team fight Hangman Bill to try to save little Amanda from her nightmare.
