CIVIL FOUR: The Comic Book

Western Culture-based cartoonist Maxeem (Commune, Ex Novo Libris) and New York comedy pioneer Casey Van Heel (The Jerk Practice) have teamed up to create and publish a thrilling tongue-in-cheek science fiction adventure comic called The Civil Four, which does not feature a cover by Kevin Cannon (Far Arden). The official book release is not planned for any particular time, but when it does come out, we will certainly have tee-shirts.

The Civil Four tells the story of those affected by interdimensional space treachery! Can Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, the ghost of Benjamin Franklin trapped in his own key, U.S. Grant and Johnny Appleseed reconcile their altered continuity before its too late? The Civil Four: Death of a Nation is a typical American-sized comic that comes in at just under 30 pages, with no spectacular full-color wrap around cover illustrated so jaw-droppingly beautifully by Kevin Cannon.

However, if you are interested, we do have a trailer you may find ironically dramatic:

Oh no the Klangsmen are out of control

    No, I haven’t seen it but it sounds funny. Time should always be a comedy. Thanks for your interest. Perhaps a cross over one day is possible, depending on the direction of our narratives. Not sure. More will be revealed about how “time” works in our universe over ….. time? mwaha
