Official SOMNIA Press Release

“SOMNIA” is created by two-time Amazon best-selling author, Brandon Chen, a prolific author of fiction novels such as “Ghost Wolf”, “God of War: Ares”, and “Age of Darkness”. The manga is illustrated by rising manga artist, Mohammad Umair Ali.

“SOMNIA” tells the story of Ren, a teenager who receives a mystic lantern that makes his dreams become reality; starting when he accidentally brought Jubei, a cyborg-samurai, to life. With his unique companion, Ren is thrust into an ongoing war between fellow Dream-Walkers and monsters that are forged from the dreams of sleepers. These monsters grow stronger by feeding on the nightmares of their victims. Follow Ren’s battle against the nightmares that plague our darkest dreams.

“Be careful of what you dream of, it just might come true.”

eigoMANGA is launching a Kickstarter campaign to cover the printing, shipping, and distribution cost of releasing the “SOMNIA” trade paperback to bookstore. “SOMNIA” is projected to be released to bookstores on April 28, 2021.

The Kickstarter is very close to its initially set goal, so hopefully more support will unlock more potential for this interesting concept. There is still a lot of time remaining for this campaign so now is the perfect time to contribute to ensure its release.

More information on the Kickstarter campaign can be found on its Kickstarter page at

Long time fan of Tokusatsu fan since Power Rangers was first released in the 90s. Whereas most Superhero fans grew up with DC Comics and Marvel, my childhood was surrounded by releases from Saban Entertainment such as Beetleborgs, along with anime, and other various fads of the generation. Anime is also a great passion with Digimon, That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime, and Demon Slayer being significant favorites. It was the love of both Power Rangers and Digimon that led to the path of becoming a Senior Writer for The Illuminerdi.
