The Ultimate Tale of Time Travel, Domination, Seduction and Redemption Continues in FARO - SUMMER 1867
When we last left off in FARO - Spring 1867 - Faro barely made it through a brawl with The Ghost Raider, the resurrected spirit of his rival Colonel John Mosby, now an instrument of damnation and destruction under the influence of the demon Summer.
Before he was rescued by Sitting Bull's children, Red Wolf & Red Raven, Ghost Raider infected and hypnotized Faro to show him the origins of Hell itself, and how demons are selected and deployed across our universe.
In this new issue, we will see Faro literally take a ride through the 9 planets of the universe, which in essence are directly connected to the 9 Circles of Hell.
And he will be going on this journey with his best friend,
When I first started doing the FARO series on Kickstarter, my ultimate goal was pretty much the same one from my childhood,
Just once, I wanted to write something beautiful,
In a story and business where I am writing about time travel in a Goodfellas like setting and constantly displaying superheroes and femme fatales alike in various states of undress to show off their gifts and gams, it's hard to make a statement like that and be taken seriously,
Until I wrote this story, and as a writer, I thank God for having the space to say it and feel the confidence in that statement as I press the keys,
This past August, during the Kickstarter for the Faro - Spring 1867 Issue, my best friend, my bulldog Baby, passed away,
It was the absolute worst time of my life, there was no escape, no entertainment, nothing that could cure that pain, nothing to give me back what nature took away,
A true writer must bleed onto the page, and while I was finishing the script for Spring 1867, I immediately started clacking away at what I feel needed to be the right kind of closure for the best friend I ever knew,
I wanted to do a non selfish tribute that profiled the purpose a dog would serve in the life of a time traveling warrior.
I wanted to write a tribute that would make every single red blooded dog lover in the world choke up, tear up, and shout for the heavens,
If you've been on board with us since the beginning then I apologize for being repetitive, but fuck off because it's time for some exposition,
The FARO Series was first published on Kickstarter back in ye olden year of 2013 after Aegon's Conquest, but it was an obsessive compulsive idea stuck in my head since my childhood,
I always felt some non sensical connection to the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, like I was a kid there, or some poor schmo at the theater that night who wished they could have saved him and been a hero.
I carried that obsession, studied all the details, walked the trail 1,000 times and even bribed a park ranger to sit in the chair at Ford's Theater, even though the real damn chair is at another fuckin museum,
The Faro story takes you through the adventure of Professor Francis Kane, who builds a time machine with the financial aid of the criminal underworld after he is fired and persecuted by the US Government.
Before the feds can take him down, Professor Kane gets in the time machine and vanishes,
He reappears right on F Street with just under 5 minutes to stop John Wilkes Booth as he's crossing into the theater.
Professor Kane is stopped by the cops, gets into an altercation, gets thrown in an asylum and is left to rot while history goes along its common course,
The Professor is then rescued by the Amazonian Witch MAJESTY, who takes him back to the beginning of time and turns him into a Warlord.
Sinking Atlantis, Burning Rome, turning New York into their Kingdom of Sodom & Gomorrah,
Until they are taken down by The Wrath of God,
When Faro wakes up, he is in a brothel in the center of New York,
It's February 20th 1860, the night Abraham Lincoln is introduced to the world,
Faro is given a second chance to save Lincoln,
But instead of having 5 minutes this time,
He gets 5 years,
