If you’ll recall from the previous issue, our heroes are time travelers, tasked with making adjustments to major moments in history, in order to restore the timeline. All of their actions are carefully planned out by The Sing, an all-powerful, all-knowing, sentient supercomputer. Fortunately, the computer is benevolent—at least so far.
This issue sees our heroes in the middle of the Philadelphia Experiment, in World War II, as top scientists on both sides work to create time travel. Among those scientists are none other than Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla. When Nikola Tesla is in your comic, it scores automatic points in my book. So does time travel, come to think of it. With both Tesla and an additional time travel plot beyond the overall time travel premise of the series, this issue has quite a lot going for it.
At times, this comic can be somewhat bizarre and a bit on the chaotic side, but that’s part of its charm. If you like comics that are strange and kind of off the beaten path, you may enjoy Future Proof. And, if you like Nikola Tesla, time travel, history, and all-powerful supercomputers, then you’ll almost certainly enjoy Future Proof #2.
