In post-depression America, Thomas Truman reaches for the American dream. Due to a miscalculation, however, the barrier between universes is broken and he is hurled into an adventure across space and personal reckoning. Nothing is as he expects in this multi-arc story. His closest friend has been murdered. His marriage lost. Thomas is overcome with guilt and loss as he steps through the Lectro labs machine, again and again, to appear each time in a very alien version of America. Little does he know that foreign agents are watching his every move. 1938 will never be the same.
