BLACK SCIENCE Takes Readers on A Wild Adventure

November 27, 2013

New science-fiction action series generates early buzz and enthusiasm, and sells out instantly

The first issue of the highly anticipated new series BLACK SCIENCE, created by Rick Remender (THE LAST CHRISTMAS, Uncanny Avengers, Captain America) and Matteo Scalera (DEAD BODY ROAD, Indestructible Hulk), has already garnered critical acclaim and sold out instantly at the distributor level. The dimension-hopping begins with a thrilling chase scene and leaves readers with a nail-biting cliffhanger.

A former member of The Anarchistic Order of Scientists, Grant McKay has deciphered Black Science and embarked on a journey through an alternate reality with his crew in tow. But he soon encounters none-too-friendly alien worlds and the exploratory mission they all first set out on suddenly a race for survival.

Praise for BLACK SCIENCE #1:

“The visually-stunning first issue plunges the reader head first 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

Black Science #1 is a breathtaking thrill-ride that channels equal parts Robert E. Howard, Philip K. Dick... combined with astonishing artwork by the incomparable Matteo Scalera.” --Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

“Readers are given nary a moment to breathe throughout Black Science #1. And if the ending is any indication, we won’t be able to in #2 as well. These elements ended up being the hook that will bring me back more than anything. It’s clear there is a deep mythology at play here.” --Kevin Finnegan, Comic Book Therapy

BLACK SCIENCE will take readers to the outer edges of reality on a pulse-pounding adventure.

BLACK SCIENCE #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores, and is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website ( and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.
