Hey there, Big B-ers!
Do you dig sci-fi? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this post! Well, just for you, I’ve got several sci-fi series that are recent enough to pick up right from the start! So, without any further ado, I present to you:
Saga: Galactic empires, a huge war, alien-based racial hatred, robot lovin’ and the newborn inter-racial baby that ties it all together. With the scope and gradeur of the Star Wars series and the careful characterization that makes you fall in love with the characters almost immediately, Saga is a perfect fit for those that love grand stories of war and space fantasy. The series is on a two-month hiatus as of now, so it’s a perfect time to catch up on the mere 6 issues that have already been released!
The Manhattan Projects: If you like books that really put the “science” in “science fiction”, Manhattan Projects will surely be well-received. The story explores a reality where the world’s top scientists during the Second World War are actually an assorted smattering of aliens, robots, trans-dimensional beings and schizophrenics who use the atomic bomb as a cover for working on space-time portals, extremely potent weapons and other such technological and supernatural feats that tickle the imagination. As the story unfolds, we find betrayals and alien invaders dabbling in the business of Einstein, Feynman and company. The first trade has just been released and it’s only on issue 6 so catching up will be a breeze!
Mind the Gap: Mind the Gap takes on a more cerebral and intimate pace than the other series mentioned. Focusing on a girl in a coma and her strange out-of-body experiences, Mind the Gap is a mystery wrapped in a thriller wrapped in a drama as different characters play out their different, realistic flaws. The stylized and direct art style will keep focus on the action and story while still being aesthetically appealing, and readers can easily get entangled in the masterfully-written whodunit plotlines. Only 4 issues deep, this series is one to keep an eye on for fans of multiple genres!
So there you have it! If you’re looking to dive into a new comic world any one of these three fine science fiction series will do you well!
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
