At the beginning of the 1900s, 1/6th of the world's wealth vacationed in and around the tiny Georgia island of Jekyll. Captains of Industry like Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, and Carnegie all called the Jekyll area home. Using this place of grandeur and elegance as a backdrop, an alternate history is explored between the World Wars. A time of great social, political, and technological upheaval. A time of ingenuity and anarchy. A time for some of the most brilliant, and horrible, minds of the 20th century to confront each other. And a time of great new heroes and fantastic new machines. The Jekyll Island Chronicles: A Machine Age War is the first in a series of graphic novels. Part historical fact, part clockwork, and part diesel punk, they span an age of furious advancement in machine technology while exploring the span of man's soul - whether evil or good.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"What's most impressive about The Jekyll Island Chronicles is the amount of historical context in the story... Consider this historian impressed... This is an easily understood history where well-known historical figures just happen to enlist the help of a strongman with mechanical legs, a woman who conducts electricity, an ace pilot of a steam-powered warplane, and a Tuskegee cryptologist to combat evil Anarchists under a leader named Zeno." -- Inverse.com

"The alternate history inventions are some of the best work... creating early twentieth century superheroes through marvelous mechanical cyborgs and a mistress of electricity... These are fun enough in themselves, but the comic's richness is in its deep grounding in actual history." -- BlogCritics
