Action Lab has announced that Romark Entertainment and Markerstone Pictures have secured the screen rights to the comic book series Herald from writer John Reilly, and artists Tom Rogers and Dexter Weeks.
Herald tells the story of Nikola Tesla, whose experiments with time travel thrust him ahead in time to the early 1900s, where he must team up with a young H.P. Lovecraft as part of a secretive group combating humanity’s greatest threat, the Cthulu Order. Two sides of the same coin, this contentious pair must navigate a dangerous and forbidden world of frightful secrets, cosmic nightmares, and unspeakable horrors in a quest to save the world. The series, which will interweave the worlds of science and magic, also features appearances by iconic characters such as Albert Einstein, Amelia Earhart and Harry Houdini.
