Before “Uncanny Avengers” before “Captain America” and before “Black Science” Rick Remender had an incredible science fiction adventure series with Tony Moore called “Fear Agent.” The book is very much the spiritual prequel to “Black Science” featuring alcoholic Texan roughneck Heath Houston as the last remaining member of the Fear Agents.
The series is notable for its emphasis on balls to the wall action, insane creatures, and complete disregard for actual science. It was designed to be a tribute to the medium, break all the rules, and even make a few of its own. Heath provides ample amounts of laughs with infinite charisma and haphazard problem solving skills as he encounters high stakes insanity in every issue.
As part of an initiative to introduce a brand new audience to the book Rick Remender sat down with Bloody-Disgusting to talk about this labor of love. READ MORE

“Fear Agent” features alcoholic Texan roughneck Heath Houston as the last remaining Fear Agent. The series is notable for its emphasis on balls to the wall action, insane creatures, and complete disregard for actual science. It was designed to be a tribute to the medium, break all the rules, and even make a few of its own.
Tony Moore brings the entire thing to life. Razor sharp lines an incredible attention to detail permeate every page. The rougher edges of the space are depicted with a certain Moore sheen that makes them feel weathered and decrepit. This is a galaxy that has seen some shit.

With the release of Rick Remender’s “Black Science” earlier this week, Bloody-Disgusting thought it time to revisit the second volume of “Fear Agent.”
The series is the spiritual prequel to “Black Science” featuring alcoholic Texan roughneck Heath Houston as the last remaining Fear Agent. The series is notable for its emphasis on balls to the wall action, insane creatures, and complete disregard for actual science. It was designed to be a tribute to the medium, break all the rules, and even make a few of its own.
The second volume “My War” launches directly from the events of the first arc. The story is anything but predictable and manages to make some serious character changes along the way. The result is another wildly entertaining romp through space and time that will drop your jaw to the ground.
Jerome Opeña takes over on pencils from Tony Moore, but the shift is hardly noticeable. Opeña’s style is very reminiscent of Moore’s gritty work from the earlier volume and at times manages to outdo it. “Fear Agent” never lets up and somehow manages to become even more thrilling in this second volume.

Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera’s second chapter of ‘Black Science’ is still ripe with tension despite being a lot slower than the first issue.

It’s an excellent second chapter of the series that sees the characters take the forefront while still maintaining an excellent sense of danger. READ MORE
Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera’s new creator owned series “Black Science” dives head first into unknown worlds where the conventional rules of the universe no longer apply. The debut issue is filled to the brim with pulse pounding adventure centering on a protagonist ripe with self-doubt.

While his protagonist’s self reflection will make you see the dangers in toying with the unknown parts of the universe. This is pure, original, and thrilling science fiction at it’s absolute best.

Rick Remender has been busy over the past few years digging into the Marvel sandbox with books like “Venom”, “Captain America”, and “Uncanny Avengers”. This week he returns creator owned work alongside artist Matteo Scalera on their new Image Comics series, “Black Science”.
Remender is known for building pulp-filled science fiction worlds with empathic characters and “Black Science” fits that bill. The series follows anarchist Grant McKay, a genius scientist who has unlocked the gateway to parallel dimensions and alternate realities. However, McKay never really considered the repercussions of his work until he finds himself trapped on a hostile world filled with all sorts of horrible creatures.

Marvel Comics announced today that scribe Rick Remender will be leaving Venom, and Cullen Bunn will be taking over full time beginning in August. Remender brought the black space goo back into popularity this past year, re-imagining Venom as government solider, Flash Thompson. While many fans were skeptical at first, Remender proved why he’s one of the best writers out there, delivering a kick-ass series that was utterly different from the 90s classic. This switch is a bittersweet one, as Cullen Bunn – who recently took over “Wolverine” – has been making a big name for himself. READ MORE
Rick Remender is taking a short break from the series with these point-one-issues consuming Venom’s life. Although Venom usually works alone, a one man wolf pack, he’s going to be fighting alongside some other Marvel anti-heroes. As Ghost Rider finds herself in some deep sh*t, she looks to Venom and Hulk for some help. Will the book have the same gusto without Remender? Probably not. But, they do have a pentagram on the cover, just so we know it’s badass. Below you can peak at the preview from Marvel Comics. read on for the skinny…

There was not much about Spider-Island that I liked aside from the Venom tie-ins (probably because Remender didn’t mix Venom into the insane fray with the rest of the Marvel heroes). The Cloak & Dagger mini was fantastic, but other than that I’m happy it’s over, happy Remender’s more-than-impressive Venom run can continue on it’s marry way. Remender has not been given nearly enough praise for his work at Marvel with Uncanny X-Force and Venom consistently being two of the best books on the stands. Die-hard Eddie Brock fans were skeptical when the series began (many still are) but Remender really gets into the nitty-gritty psychology of the symbiote, and dives headfirst into Flash’s mind. This is a Venom like we’ve never seen before, and it’s a distinct pleasure every single month. Issue 9 is a great place for new readers to hop on board before the next big arc hits in December.
