Time Before Time #1 from Declan Shalvey, Rory McConville, and Joe Palmer is scheduled to launch in May, and for those looking for variants, Image Comics has revealed the variant cover for this issue by Gabriel Walta.
“Walta is one of my favourite contemporary comic creators,” said Shalvey. “He has an incredible skill at using composition, tone and texture to articulate the most intimate detail—to make the smallest moments wonderous. I’m so delighted to have this wonderful piece of art adorn our first issue. Way better than that Shalvey cover, that’s for sure.”
Time Before Time is set in the year 2140. To escape a world with no future, many turn to the Syndicate, a criminal organization who, for the right price, will smuggle you back in time to a better life. After working for the Syndicate for years, Tatsuo and Oscar decide to steal one of their boss’s time machines—but soon find that the one thing you can’t run from is your past.
This new ongoing series is perfect for fans of bestselling crime comics like Criminal, but provides a sci-fi twist to the genre by way of time travel. Best described as The Wire meets Quantum Leap, this is a fast-paced crime caper that will leave readers breathless.
Time Before Time is scheduled to arrive on May 12, 2021.
