Garth Ennis and Facundo Percio have a new horror science-fiction series inspired by Ridley Scott’s Alien and Prometheus set for release this April (check out our interview with Ennis here). The series follows the crew of the Caliban space ship as they suddenly encounter a seemingly abandoned alien vessel. When they realize they are not alone, the real nightmare begins to unfold. It sounds a lot like Alien, but I imagine Ennis will pull the rug from under us as the series evolves. Check out the unlettered interior pages for “Caliban” #1 below.

“Furious” #2 sets out to expose the mystery surrounding Cadence Lark through exploration of her backstory in a sequence of well–placed flashbacks.

Though a bit superficial, “Furious” #2 eventually comes out swinging with several revealing scenes and high-octane art. READ MORE

An interesting new story comes out of Dark Horse this week. The tale infuses some subtle mystery with a large dose of science fiction to produce “Pariah”. There is a ton of space-related material already in circulation, but rarely in recent years is humanity the primary scope of the story. I’m not surprised to see the market flooding with material like this after Gravity, and I’m sure we’ll see even more grounded-in-reality sci-fi stories in the near future. “Pariah” #1 offers a decent start, but it offers little in the way of story or character development.

Butch’s haphazard inquest through the heart of Repo City State pushes forward and the secret of Bang-Bang is finally revealed. Adam Egypt Mortimer and Darick Robertson routinely make other comics look bad.
