Web serialization of series up for 4 Web Cartoonists’ Choice Awards
Los Angeles, CA -- Jun 14, 2006 -- Scott Christian Sava’s acclaimed The Dreamland Chronicles, which in January moved from a print comic to an online comic at DreamlandChronicles.com, has been nominated in the Web Cartoonists’ Choice Awards. The Dreamland Chronicles was nominated in four categories: Outstanding Newcomer; Outstanding Character Art; Outstanding Environment Design; and Outstanding Fantasy Comic. Winners in the over 20 categories are announced July 17.
Sava’s online serialization of The Dreamland Chronicles began with issue #1 in January 2006. Updated Daily, the last six months have seen the first 2.5 issues re-presented online. Never-before-seen pages of what would be Chapter 4 begin in July.
“It’s been great watching more and more readers find their way to DREAMLAND,” said Sava. “I’ve found literally hundreds of thousands of new readers online, and I’m really enjoying the daily interaction with them. Now being nominated for an award after only six months online is just…wow. I’m extremely flattered to be in the same categories as the many talented creators who’ve been doing this for years.”
As for the future of The Dreamland Chronicles, Sava says, “Believe it or not, I am done with Chapters 4 and 5 already. I’m having a blast doing this and as the first story arc is completed online, fans can look forward to a collected and printed edition.”
The Dreamland Chronicles, an all-ages 3D-rendered story from Spider-Man: Quality of Life and The Lab artist Scott Christian Sava, tells the story about a young boy named Alexander who has incredible adventures in Dreamland every night with his friends---Nastajia the elf princess, Paddington the rock boy, and Kiwi the fairy. On his twelfth birthday his dreams stop. Eight years later, Alexander has started dreaming again and finds himself in a world filled with giants, dragons, mermaids, and pirates. Dealing with everyday life as a college student is hard enough; now Alex must deal with nightly adventures in Dreamland and his newfound feelings for his childhood sweetheart, Nastajia the Elf princess.
The first collection of The Dreamland Chronicles will be released in winter 2006/spring 2007 and will be a whopping 250+ pages. Sava anticipates eight full volumes chronicling Alexander’s incredible adventures in Dreamland.
The Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards Committee is an independent organization dedicated to the promotion and recognition of online comics and their creators. According to Mark Mekkes, Chairman of the Committee, “Internet comics are a relatively new form of entertainment, but they’re definitely built on the shoulders of the art forms that preceded it. This [award] is one small attempt to broaden the recognition of what fellow cartoonists we can.” Nominations and voting is based on the choices of all online comic artists. Anyone with an online comic is eligible to nominate and vote for the comics to which they want to bring recognition.
