(February 13, 2024) Monstrous Books has just launched the Kickstarter campaign for THE OMEGA ELEVEN #1, the first in an epic five-issue comic book series from Bram Stoker winner James Aquilone (Kolchak: The Night Stalker – 50th Anniversary) and acclaimed artist Zac Atkinson (Young Justice, Transformers). The five-issue series follows time traveler Doctor Omega as he gathers history’s greatest thieves to pull off an impossible heist and save the Omniverse.

THE OMEGA ELEVEN #1 – THE MERLIN JOB sees Doctor Omega, the character who inspired Doctor Who, and his companion, 14-year-old Jack Dawkins, aka The Artful Dodger, as they travel to Camelot to steal the Philosopher’s Stone from Merlin. The first issue of THE OMEGA ELEVEN will be available through Kickstarter, along with the second issue of the horror comic magazine MONSTROUS.

OMEGA ELEVEN co-creator Zac Atkinson has worked on such comics as Young Justice, Teen Titans, and Transformers. “THE OMEGA ELEVEN is a project I’ve been dreaming about forever!” Atkinson says. “James and I are manifesting the craziest adaptations of history’s most classic pulp heroes and thieves. It’s Doctor Who turned up to Ocean’s 11.”

Co-creator James Aquilone recently won a Bram Stoker Award, a Rondo Hatton Award, a Scribe Award, and an Imadjinn Award for his graphic novel KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER – 50TH ANNIVERSARY. “THE OMEGA ELEVEN is packed with amazing characters from just about every corner of pulpdom and beyond,” says Aquilone. “Zac’s artwork for the project has blown me away. You can see the love and care in every stroke of his pen. It’s been a blast creating this world. Readers of THE OMEGA ELEVEN are in for one wild ride through space and time.”

THE OMEGA ELEVEN features covers by Zac Atkinson (Young Justice, Transformers), J.K. Woodward (Doctor Who, Star Trek) and Dave Acosta (Terrorwar, Elvira).

The campaign also features the second issue of the horror comic magazine MONSTROUS, which has a cover by Russ Braun (The Boys).
