Review: Time Share
After a time bending adventure, Ollie Finch was set to go home in his uncle’s rocket car time machine when everything went sideways. He’s at the center of a maelstrom of paradoxes that threatens to destroy the multiverse. Fortunately, Ollie’s fellow time traveling friends might just help straighten things out: Teddy, the brain-damaged cyborg assassin; Bax, the soldier from the post-apocalyptic future sent to stop Teddy’s mission; Preston, the 19th-century inventor; Curtis, self-proclaimed Time Master; and Roxy, Ollie’s scorned ex-girlfriend. Can this band of losers stop Phil, the world-conquering artificial intelligence… in time?
Writer Patrick Keller brings together possibly the strangest, crew for a time travel story. The combination of characters creates what feels like a parody inspired adventures in this graphic novel. When all that is put together it creates a story that’s entertaining and funny. Which makes it good read overall.
The art by Dan McDaid is oddly fluid, but given the time travel premise, it makes sense. It manages to distinguish the different time periods in a brilliant but subtle manner. Especially given the drastic differences between the time periods as a whole.
