Written by Josh Bayer and Josh Simmons, featuring artwork by Bronze Age mavericks (Trevor Von Eeden!) in collaboration with fearless indie cartoonists (Gabrielle Bell!). This zero issue is the perfect intro to the new wave of ATC and it’s the first appearance of The Red Maniac!
Features the first appearance of The Red Maniac, and we meet Time Vampire Scientist, who foretells death and destruction with the dawning of the Zeroverse!
“I met Josh Simmons at CAKE in 2013, but I first heard about him in 2003,” recalls All Time Editor, Josh Bayer. “Sammy Harkham had just published him in Kramers Ergot and I had the sense he was a genuinely dangerous creator.”
“The aim is for ATC to function like a good band,” remarks Josh Simmons, “where a bunch of skilled creators come together to create something larger than the sum of its parts. In particular I was inspired by the ATC goal of mixing Bronze Age and contemporary weirdo cartoonists, and trying to smoosh artists together in a way that was exciting and fresh.”
“All Time Comics is basically a love letter to and a magnifying glass on the craziest aspects of the superhero books we grew up reading.” – Matthew Rosenberg (4 Kids Walk Into a Bank, Uncanny X-Men, Punisher)
