About this project
MYSTERY! MAYHEM! MUSTACHES!
All right action fans, strap in for a relentless ride through the corridors of time with history's ultimate smooth-talking, sure-fisted, virile hero: ALBERT EINSTEIN!
Chief agent for THE TIME MASONS, a clandestine multi-dimensional organization charged with safeguarding the integrity of the space-time continuum, Einstein battles his way through the empires of old (Egypt, we've got our eye on you!), and harnesses the technology of tomorrow, all in the name of preserving Earth's future. And along the way, you'll see the legendary scientist dish out all of his trademarks:
Splitting the atom.
Punching guys in the face.
And of course... the dry cool wit of a young Tom Selleck.
In this revisionist action/comedy, we've transformed one of history's most iconic figures into the ultimate super hero. Armed with the easy bravado of James Bond, the time-traveling expertise of Doctor Who, and the snazzy duds of Han Solo, this is not your grandma's Einstein (unless she thought he was super hot).
It's a non-stop rush of laughs and thrills as Einstein struggles to right the course of history when he discovers the technology which allows Time Masons to traverse the temporal plane has been stolen by... who else... but a a ruthless sect of Nazis (lead by the infamous General Hans Kammler, head of Hitler's special weapons division) hell-bent on reshaping the fate of mankind by manipulating the past.
And spoiler alert: it ain't good!
But the good news is, you don't have to wait any longer to see how this unique adventure series begins! For the low-low (insanely low!) price of $1, the first issue of ALBERT EINSTEIN: TIME MASON can be in your hot little hands... so wash them, please. However, this is just the tip of the time-shuffling iceberg.
With your help, we can expand Einstein's world into a 5 ISSUE MINISERIES! Because any and all money we raise above our goal will go straight into the production of future issues. So, if you like what you see, there's still time (zing!) to decide the future (double zing!) of this awesome project.
And to add bonus fun, comic book legend Dave "The Reverend" Johnson is providing us with a Kickstarter Exclusive Cover/Print for issue #1.
You'll recognize Dave's iconic work from the covers of the award winning 100 BULLETS...
Apart from the Rev, we have more top creators waiting in the wings to do variant covers and prints, so let's get this project funded and unleash these Art Beasts on some Stretch Goals.
Take a peek at some of our postcard art by Dresden Files artist Joe Cooper.
And hey... Love Game of Thrones? So do we. Here is the House Targaryen Print offered in the exclusive "Print Package" incentive.
Risks and challenges
While any creative endeavor comes with its share of risks (like the bitter venom of criticism), we've minimized them as much as possible. What does that mean? The first issue of ALBERT EINSTEIN: TIME MASON is already completely finished.
Completely. Freakin'. Finished.
The money we raise will be dedicated to a PRINT RUN of the comic book, which you can receive along with the myriad of rewards listed on the right. We've got everything from pocket watches to custom-recorded outgoing voicemails, and spectacular artwork from Dave "The Reverend" Johnson.
But if all you're hankerin' for is the story... a digital download of the first issue will hit your inbox as soon as the fundraising campaign closes. No waiting on artists and writers to get their act together. Acts are already together! And you can reap the instant rewards.
So make your pledge, and let's tear this universe a new worm hole!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
