A middle grade journey of knowledge by Spanish comic book artist Alfonso Font

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (May 9, 2023)—Dark Horse Books presents Shelter for Lost Dreams, a middle grade graphic novel written and illustrated by Spanish comic creator Alfonso Font (Clarke & Kubrick, Tales of an Imperfect Future). It features a story centered around themes of wealth, environmentalism, racism, and religion.


In a house of wonder, two children will learn life lessons through stories spanning across time.


During his first stay with his uncle, a boy discovers the magical world that is his uncle’s house. Surrounded by eclectic antiques, a vast library of books, strange objects, and whimsical animals, he is overcome with curiosity. Here, he meets a girl who shares his sense of wonder. With his uncle’s wisdom and an enchanted gift, the children will learn important lessons through the diverse experiences of people throughout time—from common hikers encountering an unusual creature, to a general making the final decision to end a war, and many more!
