Set for release in February, Image Comics’ Black Science Deluxe Hardcover Edition Vol. 1 will collect the first three story arcs of Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera’s critically acclaimed series in a fan-pleasing oversized format.
Black Science follows Grant McKay, former member of the Anarchist League of Scientists, who has finally done the impossible; he has deciphered “Black Science” and punched through the barriers of reality. However, what lies beyond the veil is not epiphany, but chaos. Now Grant and his team are lost, living ghosts shipwrecked on an infinite ocean of alien worlds, barreling through the long-forgotten, ancient, and unimaginable dark realms. The only way is forward. The only question is how far are they willing to go—and how much can they endure—to get home again?
Speaking about the release, Remender said “This hardcover commemorates the three-year anniversary of when we started production on the book. Everyone involved has worked tremendously hard to make this prestige hardcover edition a must-have for fans of the book and new readers. It’s wall-to-wall with extras and all that lush art by Matteo Scalera, one of the most talented guys in comics. When you see Matteo’s work at this size you’ll be blown away.”
