MISC. MANGA, *Alter Nation

Unlike some Uchronia(alternate timeline)stories, this one actually presents a timeline that is alternate to ours. Crimson writer Francisco Hagenbeck put together an impressive anime-styled adventure comic, mostly thanks to the style Deadpool artist Carlo Baberi.

Because of some meddling in the timestream from our end in modern day, another reality has formed where Germany ended up taking over all of Europe in the late 1800s, and is setting its sights on America, commanded by the gothic spindoctor, “Dark Poe”. However, leading the resistance against them is the daring adventurer Sam Clemens, voluptuous Annie Oakley, a cybernetic Billy the Kid, and the seductive Mata Hari acting as a double agent. Teddy Roosevelt shows up as the leader of a brigade of bear-riders, and to sweeten the deal even further there are militarized dinosaurs in it too.

Unfortunately, there’s no trade paperback out of the 4-issue series, but totally worth owning. There variant covers of each issue, so don't be confused it you think you're buying a separate volume of the same issue number.
