Let's Kickstart This! Adventures of the 19XX Graphic Novel, SHINING SKULL: 1936


By Nolan P. Smith

I love the Adventures of the 19XX by Paul Roman Martinez. I backed the other two books in this series already, and what I received were amazing hardcover books with exciting, pulp stories and beautiful artwork. So, naturally, I supported volume 3 as well, which is Shining Skull.

What’s The Adventures of the 19XX? Here’s from the Kickstarter page:

The Adventures of the 19XX series takes place in the 1930s and is about a group trying to prevent World War II. After seeing terrible glimpses of the future, they know the war is coming. Along the way, they gather machines, magical ancient relics, and powerful people to help them in their cause. Another group, the Order of the Black Faun, battles the 19XX at every turn to further their own goal of ushering in a dark new world order with the beginning of a second Great War. The series begins with a young boy, known only as the Kid, being taken in by the Captain of the 19XX. Along the way, the Kid learns more and more about his father, who was once a member of the organization. The agents of the 19XX each take part in training and teaching him the ways of the group so that one day he can become the kind of hero his father was. Each book in the series takes place in a different year, and we get to explore the effect this unique family has on the Kid. Join us here for the last book in the first 19XX trilogy, 1933-1936. With your help, the next trilogy will stretch from 1937-1939! Each book is a completely self-contained adventure, but they all build toward an epic conclusion that will leave an indelible mark on self-publishing. You can start with the third book and experience a great 19XX story, or pick up the whole series and see what it’s all about!

Like I said, the first two books are fantastic, and I know this volume will be as well. Let’s help it reach its goal! Here’s the Kickstarter link:
