Image Comics has revealed Time Before Time #6 will feature a standalone story and three covers. The covers come from series co-writer Declan Shalvey, and artists Mike Del Mundo, and David O’Sullivan. Time Before Time #6 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 20.

Time Before Time #6 is a one shot story set in 1994, featuring the return of Oscar, (Tatsuo’s old partner) on a mission taking place before the events of #1. Yeah, you heard me… this is why time travel stories are so much fun!” said Shalvey.

Check out the covers below.

  • Cover B O’Sullivan – Diamond Code AUG210269
  • Cover C Del Mundo – Diamond Code AUG210270

Shalvey continued, “Everyone on the book has been blown away by the brilliant response to Time Before Time since #1 came out, it’s been amazing. While Rory and I were talking about where our second arc would go, I thought it might be fun to do a self-contained story outside of our main Tatsuo/Nadia storyline, to flesh out the world around our characters a bit more. I warmed to the idea so much that I decided it would be great fun to draw it myself. I’m really enjoying playing in the world that I’ve been co-writing with Rory, feeding off the fantastic work Joe Palmer has been doing issue after issue. I’m hoping this could be a great jumping on point for anyone who might be curious about the series, but missed out on getting #1. I feel there’s a time travel joke in here somewhere but I’m drawing a blank.”

For a taste of the process, Shalvey teased the main cover earlier today:
