Timespirits was a celebrated eight issue series by Stephen Perry & Tom Yeates from Marvel's Epic imprint that ran from 1984-1986. Combining Native American legend, science fiction and fantasy in unique and imaginative ways; this lushly illustrated, much-missed and influential series stands as one of the finer comics of that period. There was much talk of a Timespirits collection, but it has yet to materialize. Series author Stephen Perry was brutally murdered in Zephyrhills, Florida in May 2010.
In the first issue we are introduced to the time-traveler Cusick of the Tuscarora, an aged Native American "Time Spirit", who trades strange and powerful items for souls, which he collects in a turtle shell until he can release them into the afterlife. He soon meets teenage Doot of the Wawenoc tribe in the early days of the pre-Revolutionary War American colonies.
