The Argus is the space/time continuum’s temporal police force, made up of 100 versions of the same man from various points in his own timeline. It is their job to monitor and protect the continuum from breaks, incursions, and other damage that can occur. When one of the versions goes insane after a disastrous mission, he starts hunting and killing the other versions, and they have no choice but to violate the golden rule: recruiting the 16-year-old prodigy that invented time travel in the first place.

THE ARGUS is led by creator/writer Mark Bertolini, the creator of Action Lab: Danger Zone's Scum of the Earth, IDW Publishing's Bottle of Walter, and the Darby Pop Publishing title Bastard’s Waltz. He shares the story about his inspiration for THE ARGUS: "I remember coming up with the idea for the Argus around the same time I started dating my then-girlfriend/now-wife, and mentioning the idea to her. She wasn't a comics fan and didn't have the history with comics that I did, but she told me that the idea sounded really smart. I'm not sure if it was smart or not, but it was enough to convince me to keep working on it, and now 8 years later we're about to make it a reality."

If you're a fan of time travel stories like Chrononauts and Rick and Morty, check out THE ARGUS! The first issue will be available this February 2020. Pre-order the book with Diamond Item Code DEC191319.
