BLACK SCIENCE Still Gaining Speed

February 3, 2014

The third issue of the hit Image Comics science fiction adventure series BLACK SCIENCE, written by Rick Remender (DEADLY CLASS, Uncanny Avengers, Captain America) and drawn by Matteo Scalera (DEAD BODY ROAD), has already garnered critical acclaim and sold out at the distributor level.

In BLACK SCIENCE #3, a shell-shocked and battered Grant and his team are stranded on the front lines of the European soldiers' final standoff against the Sons of the Wakan Tech-Tanka and readers will be on the edge of their seats until the very last page.


“Matteo Scalera and Dean White are a visual dream team. For three issues now, we have been singing their praise and for good reason... I just want to taste each page of this comic; I want to cook it in a quesadilla and absorb its essence. It's that good.”
—Benjamin Bailey, IGN

“I can’t recommend it enough.” —Zac Thompson, Bloody Disgusting

“If readers have been on the fence with this series, this issue will cement what Black Science is going to be all about and hop on board now before you get left in another dimension.” —Roderick Ruth, Comicosity

“Black Science is a winner. Any sci-fi fan will be hooked.”
—Iann Robinson, Crave Online

“The visually stunning first issue plunges the reader headfirst into a Rod Serling fever dream. From creatures to spacesuits, the art team of Matteo Scalera and Dean White aesthetically tempers tension of the unknown within the familiar groundwork of vintage sci-fi.” —Robert Tutton, Paste Magazine

“Whatever dark wizards Remender made a deal with to create this story are certainly getting their money's worth. Black Science #1 is the start of a terrifying new thrill ride that I will be reading between my fingers, hands over my eyes.”
—Matt Little, Comic Book Resources

“Matteo Scalera's art and Dean White's colors are enough to make you wonder what you did to deserve such a treat.” —Tony Guerrero, Comic Vine

“The book is completely unlike anything on shelves right now.”
—Justin Partridge, III, Newsarama

“As a collaborative effort, Black Science immediately impresses with its relentless sense of wonder mixed with grounded, complex characterization.”
—Vince Ostrowski, Multiversity Comics
