Chrononauts Arrives to Burgeoning Fanfare


Mark Millar is no stranger to top-notch works. He's made a name for himself with just about everything, including works such as Kick-Ass and Jupiter's Legacy. Pair him up with Sean Gordon Murphy and you've got another bonafide hit on your hands in Chrononauts. And March 18th is when the book hits stores.

In Chrononauts, Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly are two buddies who love to have fun. They’re also scientific geniuses. When their research leads them to a time-traveling adventure, will they use their knowledge for the good of all mankind? Or use the space-time continuum for their own ends? Chrononauts is the story of man’s first, televised steps through the time-stream and and everything going wrong in the process.

The final order cut-off deadline for retailers is Monday, February 23. Full press release below.
CHRONONAUTS—A NEW TIME-TRAVEL ADVENTURE FROM MILLAR AND MURPHY
