This comic masterpiece centers on Lamar Jimmerson, the leader of the Gnomon Society, the international fraternal order dedicated to preserving the arcane wisdom of the lost city of Atlantis. Stationed in France in 1917, Jimmerson comes across a little book crammed with Atlantean puzzles, Egyptian riddles, and extended alchemical metaphors. It's the Codex Pappus - the sacred Gnomon text. Soon he is basking in the lore of lost Atlantis, convinced that his mission on earth is to administer to and extend the ranks of this noble brotherhood. Taking us through the entire cycle of Gnomonism - through the publication of Jimmerson's own Gnomic texts, through the schism that rocks the Gnomic community, through Jimmerson's disastrous bid to become the governor of Indiana, to the fateful gathering of the Gnomons in a mobile-home park in East Texas - Masters of Atlantis is a cockeyed journey into an America of misfits and con-men, oddballs, and innocents. 248 pages.
