Chrononauts Takes a Trip Through Time


Traveling through time requires intelligence, scientific know-how and a flux capacitor. Mark Millar and Sean Gordon Murphy don't really have the last bit, which might be the most important of all three. They do have a passion for comics though and some of that passion shows through in comics about time travel. Image Comics is planning to publish Chrononauts, a time-travel adventure story.

“It’s essentially a buddy story," said Millar, "about two best friends who can jump around between 16th-century Persia, the American Civil War, or New York in the ’20s.”

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.

Chrononauts #1 hits shelves on March 18. Full press release below.

Bestselling writer Mark Millar (Kingsman: Secret ServiceKick-Ass, WANTED) and artist Sean Gordon Murphy (PUNK ROCK JESUS, The Wake) team up for a time-travel adventure story that puts a fresh spin on the science fiction genre in CHRONONAUTS. Image Comics is pleased to reveal process pages, inks and final colors, from issue #1.

In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, Millar likened CHRONONAUTS to “Apollo 13 meets The Time Machine,” and added: “It’s essentially a buddy story about two best friends who can jump around between 16th-century Persia, the American Civil War, or New York in the ’20s.”
