When the apocalypse finally came, the Travelers weren’t so bad.
They didn’t want to eat our brains.
They just wanted to get to Dallas.
BY THE TIME I GET TO DALLAS: AN ER DOC’S APOCALYPSE COMIC
By the Time I Get to Dallas is a graphic novel about a young man struggling to become a doctor in the midst of an apocalyptic public health crisis. When 80% of the human race starts migrating to a single point on the globe, failing medical student Rudy Deckart sets out across the disintegrating US to rescue his girlfriend, become a doctor, confront a murderous militia using the migration to start a new world order, and find a cure for the migration impulse that will save, or maybe destroy, humanity.
By the Time I Get to Dallas is a 200-page story divided into five books. Written by a practicing emergency physician from a point of view unique in comics, and drawn by seasoned comics artists, Dallas weaves themes from medicine, neuroscience, philosophy, politics and religion (not to mention martial arts and hot air ballooning) while staying fast paced with plenty of humor and a light touch.
Dallas is written for thinking readers ages 20-90 with an eye for intelligent, character-driven adventure grounded in the real (end-of-the) world. It is a medical coming-of-age story wrapped in an epic, apocalyptic adventure that is dark, funny, thrilling and unlike anything you’ve seen in a comic book before.
Book 1 was successfully funded on Kickstarter in July 2019 by 214 backers. The print copies went out to backers ahead of schedule in December 2019. Book 2 was successfully funded on Kickstarter in June 2020 by 361 backers and the book will be shipping in late 2020.
The complete story will be 5-6 books of roughly 32 pages each. We anticipate a book being produced yearly.
