Teaser alert! Matt Loux, the creator of Salt Water Taffy and Sidescrollers, has started work on his new graphic novel The Time Museum, which will be published eventually by First Second Books, apparently in color. That right there is some good news, but here’s more: Loux will be posting bits and pieces as he works on the book, such as the pre-production piece above, which he is using to work out some of the coloring techniques.
There’s a bit more about the book at Publishing Industry Lowdown: It’s about “a precocious girl who must compete against talented kids from every age in human history in a great time-traveling challenge, where the applicants must evade marauding dinosaurs, explore the lost Library of Alexandria and confront the mysterious Grey Earl.”
Loux has set up a Twitter account for the book, which should make it easy to follow his updates.
