Below are the first two pages from the series.
Jacobs has teamed up with Umbrella Academy and Sin City publisher Dark Horse Comics on the series, whose team also includes veteran comics writer Dave Scheidt (Avatar the Last Airbender: Team Avatar Tales), art duo Kelly and Nichole Matthews of Kickingshoes (Pandora’s Legacy), letterer Joamette Gil (Us) and cover artist Wendi Chen (Adventure Time With Fionna).
The synopsis reads: “Oliver has a problem—a time travel problem. Some mysterious force keeps throwing him through time, and this time he’s in the Wild West, rescuing . . . circus animals? But as crazy as that is, it’s only the beginning of his adventure. Through everything that gets thrown at him, the only constant is his desire to help others, right wrongs, and understand the odd places and times to which he travels. With so little to go on, and no control over where he goes (or when!), Oliver must rely on his wit and his friends to find out and face whatever is causing him to tumble through time and space.”
The series will span five full-color issues, and will be available in print and digital formats. Time Traveler Tales #1 launches in comic shops December 20, 2023.
“I am so excited for this book!” said writer Dave Scheidt. “Working with Karl and Kelly and Nichole and Dark Horse has been a thrill. Karl’s created such a fun world to play around in and getting to tell new stories in that world with such an incredible creative team is an honor.”
