Image Comics will publish the Eisner Award nominated, Panel Syndicate five issue series Universe! by Albert Monteys in print for the first time this January.
The popular digital comic will be collected and available in landscape hardcover format.
Universe! features a series of self-contained, yet interconnected, science fiction stories involving alien life, robot love, corporate greed, and travel through time, space, and perception.
“As a science-fiction fan I’ve always found that the short story format is the place where the genre casts a brighter light,” said Monteys. “From the classic stories of the golden age of sci-fi magazines or the Twilight Zone to Black Mirror. Meaningful stories with powerful ideas, spiked with wonder that leave you wanting more. Graphically I find myself going back to EC science-fiction comics from the ’50s, Warren Magazines from the ’70s and Les Humanoides Associées from the ’80s, all great stuff!”
Universe! will be a 9’25” x 6’93” landscape format hardcover and available on Wednesday, January 20 and in bookstores on Tuesday, January 26.
