At the beginning of the twentieth century, 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. The Jekyll Island Chronicles uses this place of grandeur and elegance as a backdrop to explore an alternate history between the World Wars.

It was a time of great social, political and technological upheaval. A time of ingenuity and anarchy. A time when some of the most brilliant, and horrible, minds of the 20th century would confront each other. And a time of great new heroes and fantastic new machines.

The Jekyll Island Chronicles: A Machine Age War begins a thrilling new series of graphic novels. Blending elements of historical fact, clockwork technology, and dieselpunk style, they span an age of furious mechanical advancement while exploring the span of man’s soul – whether good or evil.
