‘Time Before Time’ #6 Features A Standalone Story Illustrated By Declan Shalvey
by Olly MacNamee
Time Before Time by Declan Shalvey, Rory McConville, and Joe Palmer takes a break from long form story-arcs with a standalone issue co-written and illustrated by Shalvey.
Time Before Time #6 will come with three variant covers from Shavley, O’Sullivan and Mike Del Mundo. And herels waht you expect, from Shalvey himself:
“Time Before Time #6 is a one shot story set in 1994, featuring the return of Oscar, (Tatsuo’s old partner) on a mission taking place before the events of #1. Yeah, you heard me… this is why time travel stories are so much fun! Everyone on the book has been blown away by the brilliant response to Time Before Time since #1 came out, it’s been amazing. While Rory and I were talking about where our second arc would go, I thought it might be fun to do a self-contained story outside of our main Tatsuo/Nadia storyline, to flesh out the world around our characters a bit more. I warmed to the idea so much that I decided it would be great fun to draw it myself. I’m really enjoying playing in the world that I’ve been co-writing with Rory, feeding off the fantastic work Joe Palmer has been doing issue after issue. I’m hoping this could be a great jumping on point for anyone who might be curious about the series, but missed out on getting #1. I feel there’s a time travel joke in here somewhere but I’m drawing a blank.”
In Time Before Time #6, Oscar Gomez is on the hunt for a Syndicate deserter hiding out in the year 1994. Can he rely on the local Syndicate network to track the deserter down?
Time Before Time #6 will be available on Wednesday, October 20th from Image Comics
