The Source is a time-travelling fantasy comic book series that explores magic throughout history and journeys from East St. Louis to Ancient Egypt written by Don Handfield and Joshua Malkin.
The Source. To some it is magic, to others it is pure power, to St. Louis Missouri high school teacher Jon Flood it is a mystery that will upend his quiet life and thrust him into a journey across time. After discovering that he has inexplicable powers, Jon Flood finds himself on the run from an elite group of tyrannical sorcerers (known as “The Few”) who seek to monopolize the The Source for their own dark purposes. With the help of a Witch named Cate, Flood must learn to use his power to defeat evil and discover who he really is, while venturing through time. Flood and Cate are humanity’s last hope in more ways than they know.
Don is the co-creator of History Channel's drama series KNIGHTFALL and producer of critically-acclaimed McDonald's origin story THE FOUNDER starring Michael Keaton. Handfield’s first comic series The Rift was picked up by Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment for the final episode of the reboot of Amazing Stories anthology on Apple +. Handfield wrote and directed the Saturn Award winning film TOUCHBACK starring Kurt Russell. Handfield also wrote the novel, which was a top seller on Amazon and received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly.
Handfield grew up in Indiana and Northern Virginia, and went to college at The Ohio State University before moving to Los Angeles, where he currently resides with his wife and two kids.
Joshua grew up in California’s Central Coast surrounded by rolling green hills… and his parents vast puppetry collection. Perhaps it’s no surprise that he gravitated toward the fantastical. He’s a screenwriter, a professor of creative writing at University of California Riverside and Chapman University and co-wrote the acclaimed comic series SOURCE with Don Handfield. He and his wife live in Los Angeles, the proud and bewildered parents of twins.
