Black Science Volume 1: How to Fall Forever by Rick Remender

"A must-read for Remender's fans or anyone thrilled by bizarre and compelling sci-fi." Starred Review - Booklist

"There is a lot of meat to this book. Plenty for everyone to like, or dislike. The dangers are real. People die. The worldbuilding is solid even though we're jumping through different realities. Each of those worlds pops off the page and has their own distinct look and feel." - Kirkus

"This is a solid adventure tale..." - PW

Grant McKay, former member of The Anarchistic Order of Scientists, has finally done the impossible: He has deciphered Black Science and punched through the barriers of reality. But 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, through the madness of the lightning sea-swamp and a futurepast trenchworld, where the Sons of the Wakan Tech-Tanka wage never-ending war on the savages of Europe! How did the Anarchist League of Scientists end up this deep in the onion? And, who among them sabotaged the Pillar?

Black Science Volume 1: How to Fall Forever Reviews

BOOKLIST (STARRED) -- Right at the start of this new sci-fi comic, scientist Grant McKay lops the head off an electro-toad and uses its jarring electric blue tongue as a whip against his amphibious enemies. And that's just the beginning of the strange beauty in Remender's latest. As the lead researcher of the Anarchist Order of Scientists, McKay has fractured the rules governing interdimensional travel and taken his expedition (including his family) into other worlds. What begins as an accomplishment of science and wonder quickly becomes a nightmare when McKay realizes the machine that brought them here is now jumping between dimensions at random intervals. Remender is masterful when it comes to internal monologue, particularly here, when giving voice to the inner struggles of this timid, regretful scientist. His writing is both high-concept and descriptive, and it never loses sight of its humanity. Scalera perfectly echoes the off-the-wall story, drawing in sharp angles, losing the viewer in trees of geometric shapes, and using a brilliant palette of candy colors that pop against black backgrounds that swallow deeply etched faces, lurking figures, and imaginative creatures in their shadows. A must-read for Remender's fans or anyone thrilled by bizarre and compelling sci-fi.
