Legendary Comics turns history on its head with the sci-fi adventure Epochalypse, a mind-bending new series from historical author Jonathan Hennessey (The United States Constitution: A Graphic Adaptation) and acclaimed artist Shane Davis (Superman: Earth One). When a mysterious space-time phenomenon causes 600 years of human history to collapse into a single era, societies from the past, present, and future are forced to coexist in a dystopian civilization. To set the timeline straight, an elite team of Resynchronization Officers must rid the world of Anachronisms - futuristic artifacts that threaten the very laws of time. To ensure our future, we must undo it. As one defiant officer leads the manhunt for elusive scientist Dr. Tomorrow and notorious outlaw The Salesman, he is challenged by shadowy agencies, rebel militias, and forbidden desire. Can our hero save history - or doom the future?

    Ultimately, Epochalypse read and felt to me as though it was a big budget movie without any great or meaningful performances, which is disappointing considering the talents behind the creation. It failed to make me care about anything beyond the concept. Given more time and more issues there may be more to come come back for, but this first issue didn't give me enough to want to revisit this world again. That's a failure for me in a first issue. A #1 needs to set up characters and a world that I care about and want to revisit, an interesting concept is not enough by itself to get me to come back. Read Full Review

    Awesome concept and absolutely stunning art. This strange world has geological areas separated by timeline because a supernatural event caused multiple timelines to collapse into one. Add to that a jack booted police state keeping the status quo, this is akin to something out of 2000AD. The first issue has me hooked, I definitely want to see where this world takes me. Highly recommended to fans of science fiction and history. -- *UPDATE*: Comicbookroundup never posted past the first issue, but subsequent issues after this one suck balls, so don't bother.
