Comic publisher DSTLRY has announced Time Waits, a new comic series from co-writers Chip Zdarsky (Batman, Daredevil, Sex Criminals) and David Brothers (Good Devils, Go Back), as well as artist Marcus To (Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Force), colorist Matt Wilson (Thor, Paper Girls), and letterer Ariana Maher (Demon Days: X-Men, Crush & Lobo). Launching this summer.

The official synopsis for the story reads: TIME WAITS revolves around Blue, a time-traveling soldier of fortune who abandons his war and finds asylum in a small rural town nestled in his timeline’s distant past—our present. After Blue falls in love with the local sheriff, Grace, the couple builds a life of gardening and domestic tranquility. But just as Blue and Grace debate expanding their family through adoption, Blue’s former corporate lords from the future locate the deserter and send soldiers to ruthlessly reclaim their property and the secret he’s been hiding.

“It’s been an amazing process to explore the different lives and eras of TIME WAITS with David and Marcus. there’s a huge tapestry of story here and we’re beyond excited to reveal how these characters collide—often with huge explosions expertly crafted by Marcus—throughout TIME WAITS.”


This project marks the first of four series by Chip Zdarsky for DSTLRY.

“Exploring sci-fi violence in a small town with Chip and Marcus has been a great time, right up our alley. A time-traveling vendetta is a great way to complicate things for a couple who are starting to slow down—not to mention the fun of getting to dig into the best parts of both settings.”

Each issue of Time Waits is presented in DSTLRY’s perfect-bound Prestige format, featuring wraparound covers with spot gloss on robust cover stock, complemented by 48 pages of exquisite interior stock. “It’s the DSTLRY difference,” says co-founder and CCO Chip Mosher.

“Drawing this book has been an absolute blast. I have been able to flex my character acting muscles as well as try something different with my storytelling in DSTLRY’s oversized format. I loved drawing these characters interacting with each other in both calm and violent ways, and Chip and David have created a winding, surprising story that’s hard to put down.”
