Issue number 2 of Radical Publishing’s Time Bomb goes on sale next week, on September 15th, and they’ve sent over another stunning review copy for me to peruse.
For those of you who didn’t read issue one of Time Bomb, the story began after a small group of scientists accidentally triggered the “Omega Bomb”, after discovering a secret Nazi bunker from World War II, which signaled the end of life as we know it. The “Omega Bomb” detonates, spreading a deadly virus across the planet, causing the powers that be in Washington, D.C., to plan a risky time travel operation to prevent the disaster. A team of four specially trained agents armed to the teeth, were to be sent back 24 hours, using a defunct project called “Time Bomb” to save us.
Things don’t go as planned, and the team ends up in a Nazi German concentration camp at the end of World War II, just when the Nazi regime is at its most desperate… and dangerous.
The riveting story continues in Time Bomb issue 2, as the human race has 72 hours until total extermination, and the four specialists – including team leader Jack McCrea, tech-ops specialist Ken Weinhauser, strategist Christian Grainger, and deadly science expert Peggy Medina – fight for their lives in a German POW camp. This, while attempting to get to ground zero, and not alter the past. However, their presence has alerted an evil enemy to their mission: The creator of the Omega Bomb himself – Axel Von Metzger, The Butcher.
The action style of writing, along with the outstanding art work – which could double as detailed, full-color storyboards for some of the great classic World War II films like Where Eagle’s Dare – made book one for me to devour.
Check out the incredible preview art from Time Bomb issue 2 below, featuring illustrations by Paul Gulacy, with a cover by Gulacy and colorist Rain Beredo.
Time Bomb is written and was created by Jimmy Palmiotti (Deadpool, Daughters of the Dragon, Heroes for Hire, Jonah Hex, Power Girl, 21 Down) & Justin Gray (Jonah Hex, Power Girl, 21 Down), and is lettered by John J. Hill.
