The Totally Unstuck Adventures of Anna Chronos: A Comic Book   

Totally Unstuck Adventures of Anna Chronos a high-adventure comic about a 15 year old Mexican-American girl named Anna Chronos. Anna’s exploits send her careening throughout time as she grapples with being the daughter of time guardians, the ramifications of her actions on the fabric of reality, and time monkeys. All of this while grappling with the inexplicable separation of her parents. Despite the fracture in their home life, Martin and Polly Chronos continue to work together as the joint heads of The Stop Watch, an agency of temporal guardians that has enlisted the assistance of some famous -- and not-so-famous -- missing persons from throughout history. 

From the mind of Brian David-Marshall (Captain America, The Craptacular B-Sides) and artist Jesse Munoz (Broken Legacy from Stockpile Comics) Book 1 is a complete 32 page, full color story that will introduce you to Anna’s universe and the cast of characters that accompany her throughout history. We have come to Kickstarter for your support to help us get this comic printed.

We have put together a seven page teaser for the comic that introduces the characters and sets the stage for Anna's first adventure that you can download for free right here.

When we first meet Anna she has built her own time travel device against her parents’ explicit wishes and unbeknownst to her those actions have set off a series of temporal events that threaten to destroy not just her universe but those that lie beyond our perception. She is rescued by her estranged parents -- Martin and Polly Chronos -- who are the co-leaders of a temporal protection agency known as The Stop Watch. With the help of Stop Watch agents Judge “Force” Crater and famed aviator Amelia Earhart they are able to track Anna down and rescue her but not before Anna has displaced other versions of herself from other timelines. With their Anna safe and sound, The Stop Watch proceeds to send Anna home -- where her partner-in-time and best friend Desdemona Dare has been fretting about her safety. Anna sees what appears to be her mother succumbing to chaos-frenzied time monkeys -- harbingers of catastrophic instability in the time-space continuum. Before they overwhelm her, Polly manages to hand Anna a bag that contains everything she needs for her mission. Time itself depends on Anna assembling something called The Second Hands and saving past, present, and future from chaos.

This comic will explain just what The Second Hands are, explore the mystery of why Polly and Martin are not together, and force Anna to grapple with the fate of...well...everything.

There are many ways you can support us in getting this comic book to become a reality ranging from a digital edition of the comic, to gaming playmats, to original art and sketch covers. Of course you can always help out just by giving us a signal boost and sharing our campaign with friends, family and social networks who might be interested in our book. Our number one goal is to get the book funded which will help us cover the costs of producing the book, printing and shipping. Our first stretch goal will be to have the book be in full color.

Stretch Goals

We hit our funding mark faster than we could have hoped for (thank you again!) and are excited to have added in our first two stretch goals. If we can get the campaign over the $6500 mark we will send a set of custom game token cards featuring creatures and characters from the comic that maybe you can find some occasion to use when playing games to everyone who Kickstarted at the Calculator Watch tier or higher. 

If we get to the $8000 threshold we will be sending everyone who has Kickstarted at the Exposed Gears Watch tier or higher a second copy of the book with a variant cover by artist ChrisCross. 

Mystery Cover Artist Revealed 

We are excited to announce the variant cover artist for our next Stretch Goal threshold is none other than ChrisCross. Chris first rose to fame as the artist for Milestone Media's Blood Syndicate and is known best for his runs on Marvel's Captain Marvel and Slingers, as well as his acclaimed run on DC's Firestorm (although I think his finest work came illustrating the story "Graduation Day" in the first issue of Marvel's The Craptacular B-Sides). He has been working on a series of hardcover graphic novels for the European imprint Humanoids, Inc. and does some of the best cover work in the business.

If we cross the $8000 funding threshold everyone who funded from the Exposed Gears tier or higher will ALSO receive a second copy of the book with the exclusive ChrisCross variant cover.
 
     

Risks and challenges

We cannot wait to get this project finished and anticipate a timely delivery of this introduction to the world of Anna Chronos, her family and friends, and the Stop Watch. There are always risks and challenges associated with any crowdfunded projects -- even a story that we are as eager to tell as the one in this book. It is just me and Jesse working on this thing and if either of us get waylaid by an unforeseen crisis it would impede us from getting the book out on the timeline we anticipate. With your backing we can remove as many of those real world impediments as possible and are excited to get Anna Chronos out to you as soon as possible.
