Praise for The Jekyll Island Chronicles:

“An alternative-history steampunk treasure… Consider this historian impressed.” — Matt Kim, Inverse

The Jekyll Island Chronicles... shines a bright light on alternate history in the comic medium with its deep characterizations of historical figures and innovative takes on technology and politics... leaves the reader shivering with anticipation.” — Jeff Provine, BlogCritics

“A real page-turner… if you’re a fan of the steampunk genre or love alternate timeline history books, this is definitely the book for you.” — Jason S. Lockard, Rogue Cinema

“Sharp… Heroism here is not just about might but also about justice, humility, and compassion… this is a fantasy pulled out of a real Southern location with quite the history.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

"The writers have constructed an intriguing plot about an alternate world... Nestor shows the wonder of the visually stimulating locations." — Slings and Arrows

At the beginning of the twentieth century, one sixth 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. Blending elements of historical fact, clockwork technology, and Diesel punk style, The Jekyll Island Chronicles span an age of furious mechanical advancement while exploring the span of man’s soul – whether good or evil.

In Book Two of this alt-history adventure, Peter, Helen and the rest of Carnegie’s “Specials” would like nothing more than to return to normalcy along with the rest of the country -- especially after defeating their enemies in Book One. But the anarchists have other plans. Luigi Galleani and the Zeno cabal reach out across Europe and across the Atlantic to wreak havoc, divide the enemy, build an army, and capture plans for the world’s deadliest weapon. If they are to be stopped, the tiny group of heroes from Jekyll will need to find new resolve, new resources and new allies -- and do it all before Nikola Tesla’s most terrible creation is unleashed. -- a 168-page, full-color softcover graphic novel with French Flaps, 6.875” x 10.435”
