Rick Remender has missed Image Comics. It's been a few years since he offered up his talents to one of the hottest publishers around these days, but apparently few years is too many years. Starting November, Remender returns to Image Comics with Black Science #1, paired up with Matteo Scalera and Dean White.
Remender says, “Black Science feeds on my love of comic book science fiction, the kind that is incredibly reliant on strong visuals. So fortunately, I'll be working with two of my favorite collaborators—Matteo Scalera and Dean White—to bring these hundreds of new worlds to life. I'm incredibly excited to be doing new books with longtime publisher Image Comics. “
Grant McKay, former member of The Anarchistic Order of Scientists, deciphered Black Science and punched through the barriers of reality. But every experiment has its unintended consequences, and instead of finding enlightenment and epiphany, McKay and his team find nothing but chaos as they are lost in an infinite ocean of alien worlds teeming with the unimaginable. Home is suddenly very far away, but McKay and crew have no choice—they must push forward.
“The setup we have here is one that I have absolute faith will lead to years and years of great stories,” says Remender. “I've already got the first two years of the series plotted out and I'm absolutely dying to take people on this shotgun blast of a journey.”
Black Science #1 will be in stores on November 27, featuring a cover by Scalera and White and an alternate cover by Andrew Robinson, and is currently available to pre-order from the July issue of Previews (Diamond Codes SEP130471 and SEP130472). Full press release below.
