NEW! Stretch Goals at bottom of page!
Temporal Comics was created to bring fun back to comics.
Our first venture is a multi-issue comic book featuring original profiles on public domain superheroes mostly from the golden age, but some will be silver age. We are going to include the most known, with full profiles, to unknowns that have very little information as they made only a few appearances and in some cases just one.
The most exciting part is the all-new artwork by Chris Malgrain. Sub-par artists often drew many of the adventurers of the golden age - not everyone could hire Reed Crandall or Lou Fine. I have seen most of the art for our first issue, and we promise you will not be disappointed. Check a few sample pages below. I think you will agree Chris does terrific work.
The first issue will feature:
• Amazing Man • American Crusader • Atom Wizard • Atoman • Atomic Thunderbolt • The Avenger • Black Cat • Black Panther • Blue Lady • Captain Flash • Captain Future • Captain Tootsie • Daredevil • Detective Eye • Fantom of the Fair • The Flag • Green Giant • Masked Marvel • MiniMidget • Miss Fury • Miss Masque • Moon Girl • Pat Parker, War Nurse • Rainbow • Red Rocket • The Shark • The Silver Streak • Target • Vapo-Man • Wonder Boy • Wonderman • Yankee Girl
How many issues will we be doing?
The project is open-ended as there are hundreds of public domain characters. The deciding factor will always be if we can raise funds to produce the comics. With your help, I think we are in great hands. :)
How many profiles can we expect for each issue?
Our first issue will feature 32 profiles. Following issues will be 24 profiles.

Now a little about me:
I have always loved superheroes!
Since I was about 7 and my dad bought me my first Batman comic book, I have been fascinated by these costumed crime-fighters. I especially loved team books as they had more heroes.
Then around 1999, I had stumbled upon the golden age of comics. I was stunned to learn of guys like the Flame, Pyroman, Black Terror and so many more. It was at this time, on a message board, I first contacted Richard Boucher. After several conversations, we decided to start a website called "The Good Guys & Gals of the Golden Age".
Our goal was to catalogue every single character that was active during the Golden Age (plus some others as well). I believe at that time our list was about 1100+ - no small task. It featured well known and obscure heroes and heroines and ran 22 issues.
Risks and challenges
No risks as the artwork is already completed and pages are being put together during the next few weeks.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
