The world of A Genesis Found is growing this Fall with the launch of Southern Truths featuring John Patton Jr, a bi-weekly online comic strip that begins where the film left off.
Years have past, but John Patton Jr. hasn’t shaken the burden he unearthed in Moundville. Through War, Love and Loss, John’s successes are overmatched by the secret- the discovery- he fears he can never explain. War Hero, Archaeologist, and Husband & Father—the best years of John’s life are put at peril by mounting obsession and his quest to get back what was took.
John’s search for God carries him through Ball Turret service in the Pacific War, and continues with his rise to prominence as one of the most important archaeologists of his day. But in science he can find no answers- until he’s willing to put it all on the line for the hunt of a mythical ancestor, “The Itinerant Man”—John’s last chance to explain away what he found, and reclaim what he lost.
