Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Grant McKay und einige andere Wissenschaftlter haben das Unglaubliche vollbracht: mittels des "Pillar", einer Maschine nicht unähnlich der Zeitmaschine von Wells, können Reisen in andere Dimensionen, die wie Zwiebelschalen übereinander liegen, unternommen werden. Man erhofft sich von diesen Reisen Lösungen für Probleme zu finden, die in unserer Welt (noch) nicht möglich sind.
Es dauert ein wenig, bis der Leser sich das zusammenbuchstabiert hat, denn Remender legt mit einer irrsinnigen Verfolgungsjagd los, die McKay und sein Team über mehrere surreale Dimensionen treibt, ohne dass das Team oder der Leser Zeit zum Luftholen fänden.
Die Spannung bleibt durchgängig hoch, es gibt Konkurrenzen und Spannungen im Team der Dimensionauten, Sabotage und persönliche Konflikte; Liebe und Heldenmut, Verrat und Feigheit machen die Dynamik aus.
Grant McKay ist eher ein Antiheld, ein Verweigerer, der zur Introvertiertheit neigt und es mit sich und seinem Leben nicht leicht hat. Zu Beginn haben mich seine selbstquälerischen Nabelschauen etwas genervt, aber schließlich wird aus McKay doch ein (im Rahmen des UnMöglichen) glaubwürdiger Charakter, der sehr viel vielschichtiger und sympathischer ist als Heath Huston, Remenders dauerbetrunkener Fear Agent.

Die Zeichnungen, die hinsichtlich der Darstellung der Figuren eher Cartoon als Realismus sind, haben mir zum größten Teil sehr gut gefallen, auch wenn die Figuren auf einigen Panels etwas liebevoller hätten gestaltet werden können. Grellbunt wird die Atemlosigkeit der Verfolgungsjagd orchestriert, die Atmosphäre ist surreal und bedrohlich.

Ich hab über diesen Comic in einen Podcast gehört und hab es dann bei Amazon bestellt.

Gute Entscheidung! Es ist eine echt spannende Sci-FI Story der mit einen geilen Cliffhanger endet. Ich kann kaum auf den zweiten Volumen warten.

In der Story geht es um Paralleldimensionen, Familienprobleme, das menschliche Überlebensinstinkt und viel mehr. Das Art-style und die Farben fand ich auch perfekt passend dazu: grell, lebhaft, und zum Teil düster. Die fremdartige Fantasiewelten sind fantastisch, und die Action is nonstop!

Sehr empfehlenswert!

Hard-Core, Fast Paced Sci-FI that satisfies! 2. September 2014
Von GN Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you liked Remender's Fear Agent, you should really like this new series. However, be warned this series is not as funny and the science is more dark and edgy. Of course, as with any good story, the science is not the main story driver. Instead, it is about a dysfunctional family trying to stay alive and stay together just long enough to get back home. Without giving away too much, I will tell you that Grant McCay, a rebellious genius who invented a machine that can access other dimensions, suddenly finds himself, his kids and coworkers jumping from one dangerous dimension to the next via a damaged machine. The art is excellent, very expressive and well suited to the story. The story starts off fast (akin to how Star Trek Into Darkness started) and never slows down. It is a fast paced enjoyable read that, like the pulp fiction of yesterday, ends with delightful cliffhangers (especially at the end of issue 6...but I won't give that away). The only negative I can think of is some folks may find it confusing how the story jumps back and forth from the past to the present and back again.

Do I recommend it and will I keep on reading it? I sure will for I definitely want to know how they resolve the surprise development that occurred at the end of issue six.

Note to Parents: There is some profanity (not excessive) and some implied sex. I don't think it is appropriate for pre-teens but I felt comfortable letting my teenager read it.

I primarily review graphic novels and my rating system is simple. 5 stars for books that I couldn't put down and read from start to finish in one sitting. 4 stars for excellent books that I highly recommend and will continue reading myself. 3 stars for books I liked and may recommend. 2 stars and below for books I would not recommend.

I hope this review helped. If it did, please click the yes button below. Thanks.

Science Fiction + Pulp Adventure x 100 = Crazy Stuff 3. Juni 2014
Von Anarchy in the US - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Black Science is one of my favorite Image books right now. There – I said it. Not so much because it’s by one of my favorite writers in current comics Rick Remender, but because it’s everything I love about comics in one setting. It has high end action, lots of crazy science fiction (a note Remender is good at), and plenty of crazy twist and turns to keep you interested. It’s an ode to Pulp comics like Doc Savage and Remender makes no apologizes for it. I know I usually start my reviews with a rudimentary introduction, but what the heck? Cut to the chase because that is just what Black Science is as a series; one that cuts to the chaser and doesn’t let go.

BLACK SCIENCE VOL.1: HOW TO FALL FOREVER collects issues #1-6. Grant McKay, leader of the League of Scientist, has finally found a way to use black science in order to travel through other dimensions thanks in part to his invention, The Pillar. So McKay invites his family and the science team to look at his personal achievement and something goes wrong, to which the Pillar warps the crew into another dimension filled with frogs and monster having a war. The only thing Grant and his crew can do is try to stay alive while hopping through dimensions to hopefully get back home, if ever they make it back home.

Remender hits the ground running with this series as Grant and the crew is trying to survive in bad situations with each jump in weird crazy dimensions from fending off humanoid-frogs with electric tongues that live on islands of giant sea turtles, to a futuristic era of Civil War soldiers fighting cyber Indians. And that’s only a small part of what’s to expect. This is a zany adventure series that not only focus on the crazy worlds the McKay crew visit, but the conflict with the crew itself. While the main narrative focuses on the crew staying alive long enough, the book jumps to flashbacks leading up to the current events that help explain things and understand the characters better. Grant has perplexing persona of being a typical scientist, trying to be a good family man, yet has bad habits (like having an affair with another scientist). All the while a plot from one of the scientist to possibly sabotage the project make for a fun and engaging read you want to know what happens next. Remender really sets the bar by using complete creative control to surprise readers every step of the way. If you think Walking Dead defies reader expectations about who might die at any moment, Black Science will give it a run for its money, especially the very end of this book.

A great book is only as strong as the writer/artist team, and Matteo Scalera is the other half that make a beautifully drawn book. His art style is sketchy and loose, but it is utterly detailed and frantic to match the pace. Thanks to colorist Dean White to bring out the detail, every kind of weird sci-fi design you could imagine is in full force under Scalera. This is a beautiful book.

I had no problems with this book. If there were any faults it might be the breakneck pace and Scalera’s art style being a bit crazy at times, but I found them miniscule.

Chalk up another hit from Image because BLACK SCIENCE VOL.1 by Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera is a great science fiction adventure that runs at 100-miles-per-hour and does not let up. And at $10 it’s very safe to try this title out for yourself.

Rick Remender and Pulp-SF-Anarchy Return To Comics 23. Juni 2014
Von Corey Lidster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Rick Remender's return to the Pulp-SF territory of Fear Agent is a welcome one, and another great series continues Image's transformation from the worst comic publisher ever, pushing nothing but Spawn spinoffs and Witchblade-The Darkness-Youngblood type crap (with little to recommend them except 'super-collectible' platinum foil variants and the fact that every other issue is a rebooted 'super-collectible' 1st-issue), into a pretty damn good one, under Robert Kirkman's iron-fist. Matteo Scalera's artwork is reminiscent of the work of European artist Mastantuono (whose book Elias the Cursed was released a couple years ago by Humanoids); his versatility and imagination match up well with Remender's fantastic conceptual detours, and of course, the violent, sometimes horrific shocks he writes so well.

One of the best thing's about Fear Agent was the narrative freedom, as Remender created an atmosphere that straddled irony and earnestness and allowed the reader to accept every crazy twist as it came, without scoffing or criticizing, embracing the story and characters without pretense. He opens those same doors of possibility in Black Science, as punk-rocker turned not-so-theoretical physicist Grant Mackay and a group including his two children, his assistant/lover Rebecca, and his hostile boss Kadir, end up on a rudderless trip through the endless variations of reality, most of them ridiculously dangerous and utterly alien, thanks to an act of sabotage that unexpectedly activates their reality traversing device called 'the Pillar'. Unable to repair the controls that someone on board is responsible for destroying, they are helpless to stop the Pillar as it punches through each new 'layer' of stacked realities they dub 'The Onion'. This is not quite 'prime' Remender, however. The character are not cohering the way they did in Fear Angent, and the captioned meditations and philosophizing that worked in that series isn't particularly successful here. We don't need to be privy to Grant's every doubt and fear and guilt, and since the reader doesn't know what they think of him yet, it feels like over-sharing. Letting the plot reveal the characters is harder, but more effective. The action moves quickly, anyway. With all the developments of volume 1, especially the stunning conclusion, I'm looking forward to volume 2. Highly recommended. (82/100)
Nitty, gritty, and far from... 28. November 2014
Von Austin Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Authored by Rick Remender (creator/writer of Fear Agent and Deadly Class), Black Science is a refreshingly twisted take on the ever common literary theme of time travel. It's been a long time since I've read any science fiction that has cojones and puts just as much emphasis on its characters as it does the science and action of the narrative.

The protagonist Grant Mcckay is a bit of an antihero, on one hand he is the genius charismatic leader of a band of anarchist scientists, on the other hand he's a self centered *insert expletive* who has no real scope for how his decisions may affect others (including his own family).

In Volume 1 Grant and his band of rebel scientists have successfully managed to time hop--a fact that Grant believes will change the universe for the better. However, the machine has been damaged and their time hops are sporadic and uncontrollable. As the clock ticks down between time hops, the reader is filled with the same anxiety as its characters. Where will they end up next? Will the world be friendly or dangerous? Will each new world contain the proper tech to allow them to fix the machine? And finally, who is the traitor that has damaged the machine amongst them?

If a properly written psychotropic dark Sci-Fi thriller isn't enough to convince you to read it, perhaps the artwork will. Penciled by the haunting hand of Italian artist Matteo Scalera , one might easily be forgiven for forgetting to read the words and merely flipping through the images.

If you're a fan of Quantum Leap and Lost in Space this is for you. 24. November 2014
Von Chris Adraneda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This was a very interesting book. It really reminded me of Lost in Space meets Quantum Leap. Remender's take on the various futures and dimensions is awesome. The artwork is just okay. I wish it were less cartoony, had a more serious tone, and was much clearer (the painterly style was wonky, paneling was a little confusing, etc.). All in all it was a fun book. I don't know whether I'd continue past the first arc. Its certainly intriguing but I'm not hooked. The first trade is worth a read. I can see this being an FX TV series or something.
