Specials, daily contests, Pet Robots and The Dreamland Chronicles 2 debut, and The Dreamland Chronicles toys showcased
Official press release
Nashville, TN — July 20, 2007 — Scott Christian Sava’s Blue Dream Studios is, like everyone else, heading to Comic-Con International: San Diego (July 26-29). But not like everyone else, Blue Dream’s sole enterprise is for every age, from 1 to 100. At booth #1947 visitors and fans can come by and purchase the new PET ROBOTS and see a preview copy THE DREAMLAND CHRONICLES BOOK 2. They can also purchase two collectible figures based on the acclaimed and award-winning THE DREAMLAND CHRONICLES: the fiery Queen of the Elves, Nastajia Ashenheart, and the cute and bubbly fairy, Kiwi (designed by world-famous animation artist Dean Yeagle).
Sava and character designer Karen Krajenbrink will also be at the booth sketching and signing away.
Drawings will be held daily where fans can win a signed copy of every book (THE DREAMLAND CHRONICLES, PET ROBOTS, ED’S TERRESTRIALS, THE LAB, and PSI KIX), as well as one each of the collectible figures, featuring an original sketch by Sava.
Both the Nastajia and Kiwi collectible figures are limited to 1,000, are signed and numbered, and will be the only ones featuring sketches and signatures. They will retail for $24.95 and will also be available online at www.thedreamlandchronicles.com. After the 1,000 sell out, newer versions of the figures will not feature those collectible features.
“This is a big, big show for me,” said Sava. “I have so many exciting things happening. The figures look terrific, PET ROBOTS looks gorgeous, and the contest is going to be a lot of fun. The fans have been great, too, what with DREAMLAND being voted Favorite Original Graphic Novel in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s Fan Awards. I’m really looking forward to meeting all of my new fans at the con and I can’t thank all of my current fans enough for supporting me and for telling me how you share my books with your family, friends, and, especially, your kids.”
THE DREAMLAND CHRONICLES: BOOK ONE (ISBN: 978-0-9789168-0-0, $19.95, 300 pages, full-color perfectbound, 6″ x 9″) is in retailers’ stores now or can be ordered if you ask your friendly retailer to get it for you today. BOOK ONE (of an anticipated 6-book epic) collects the first four issues of the series that “will return you to the days of your childhood and…help your imagination fly free.” [JazmaOnline.com].

The field trip ends, but unbeknownst to Jake, Chris, Tammy and Tommy, the robots follow them home.
