Script: Marcus Perry
Art and Letters: Tony Donley
SYNOPSIS: He’s got the mind, the might, and the mustache! A roguish ALBERT EINSTEIN leads a team of geniuses called THE TIME MASONS in a battle to protect the integrity of our timeline. But when a new threat puts the past, present, and future in peril, it’s up to him and a squad of epic historical figures to save the universe before the clock runs out. Get ready for an Einstein you never imagined in the greatest time-travel adventure series history has never seen.
THE STORY: In this issue, we find Einstein stuck in the wild west time period in which he runs into a few of histories biggest names and of course some hijinks ensue. In past issues, he has battled the likes of Alexander the Great and even went into the far future. The story is written well and each issue is a one and done style story but it also feeds a larger arch. This book feels like an old silver age comic to me. Which seems appropriate since it’s a time travel book this book looks and acts like it should have been made between 1961 and 1980.
THE ART: The artwork gives me a very old school comics kind of vibe as well, the colors are flat and there isn’t any shading or highlights to speak of, which really works for this book in my opinion. Also, the artwork for what I assume is the 5th issue hints at a meeting with Cleopatra and the artwork of Einstein has him looking a lot like an 80’s era Tom Selleck, which has me dreaming about a movie that we never got!
I love this book check it out if you’re looking for a great read and a fun story!
