End of Nerd Wave Paradigms

I've decided to no longer update Nerd Wave Paradigms. You can instead find me on Tumblr at, Twitter @jwtierney, and my personal site at, all of which I've been much more active on. These, along with the Facebook page, are also the best sources for Spera info and news. Thanks to all those who followed! Hope to see you around.

Yonder's Dream

Sometimes Yonder dreams -- and often it is a recurring one involving armour, his younger self and an abstract sense of purpose.

Yonder's Dream is an 8-page Spera comic brought to life through the feverish colours and animated GIF elements of Joanna Krótka, who also came up with the original concept. Please click through to see the rest of the comic and its animations.
