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.

Frilly costumes! Ornate attack shouts! Magical activation jewellery! All 24 pages of Magical Girls are now online, and it’s probably the world Lono wishes the main Spera story was. Follow high school students Pira and Lono as they uncover the nefarious schemes of the Starless, all while studying for tests and reading comic books.
Magical Girls was illustrated by Victoria Grace Elliott, who is part of a magical girl group project called Pretty Clover Knights. If you like shoujo, Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura and other cartoons and comics in the magical girl genre, we hope you’ll check out Magical Girls!
As a special bonus you can download a wallpaper from the comic's first page.
