A PREMIER COMIC AND GRAPHIC NOVEL PUBLISHER

Born in the Bronx, Stefan Petrucha spent his formative years moving between the big city and the suburbs, both of which made him prefer escapism. A fan of comic books, science fiction and horror since learning to read, in high school and college he added a love for all sorts of literary work, eventually learning that the very best fiction always brings you back to reality, so, really, there's no way out. He first came to prominence as the author of the best-selling X-Files comic book series, based on the TV show and has since written eighteen novels including Timetripper, The Shadow of Frankenstein, and The Rule of Won. His recent work includes, Paranormal State: My Journey Into the Unknown (co-authored with A&E star Ryan Buell), Split, Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid, and the upcoming Dead Mann Walking. He currently lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife and fellow writer Sarah Kinney and their two daughters.

“This series still trumps most current comics in terms of creativity and mental stimulation.” - Behind the Times Comics Review

 

“Readers will witness a rare event in comic books, the introduction of a major new talent, Stefan Petrucha.  Even more amazing is this intense, well-written, highly original book.” - Suspended Animation

Welcome to A-Time, not another dimension, not a parallel world, but your very own neighborhood bereft of linear time! Here, past, present and future merge like expressway off-ramps. Here, bestial six legged Quirks can alter the future, Glitches of powerful emotion swarm once-stable lives, and Archetypes leave (big) footprints. After a nervous breakdown, genius double-doctorate Harry Keller wasn’t looking for A-Time, but he found it. Like many explorers before him, he soon learns that the terra incognita is dazzling and dangerous, because whatever happens in A-Time also has an effect here, from benign to devastating. And, just like those explorers, Harry Keller thinks he’s the first. Being wrong, of course, he stumbles onto a devious plan to have Ronald Reagan re-elected president, so he can die in office and fulfill the Zero Curse! And yes, in context, it makes total sense! Can Harry set things right before he’s locked away for keeps?
