Reviews

"An amazing tale of one man's odyssey from African king to ruler of the stars told with breathtaking visuals. INFINITUM is epic in every way! Engrossing! Powerful! Intelligent! Cinematic!" -- Jerry Craft, author of the New York Times bestselling New Kid

"A merciless king is cursed to eternal life...and so begins Tim Fielder's extraordinary tale of a Black immortal seeking redemption, an epic that takes us from the dawn of civilization to its very end of the Earth. Brilliant, bold, beautiful, and deliriously, wondrously Black, INFINTUM is what might happen if the Wakandan book of Genesis and the Afrofuturist book of Revelation decided to have a kid--nothing you read this year will come close to this amazing book." -- Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

"This sweeping tale mirrors both the history of genre literature and the African American experience." -- Publishers Weekly

"Fielder's . . . . boldly painted illustrations exhibit raw power on every page of this staggeringly ambitious epic."
-- Library Journal

"With Infinitum: An Afrofuturist Tale, Tim Fielder is pushing the genre forward (and inviting others to join)." -- Syfy.com

"How, you may ask, can a story this vast not be 'central' to Infinitum? (How can it feel to me like nothing?) Well, because it is too vast." -- Bob Levin, Comics Journal
