YOU GUYS! Remember when I told you about Black Science, Rick Remender's new weird science-horror comic? Well I picked up the first issue last week and it's awesome! It has everything you could want in a scifi pulp adventure. Here's a few quick snaps from my phone (sorry if the quality isn't great when enlarged):

Primitive fish folk riding land eels!

Ancient temples spewing eldritch energies!

Frog gods and the evil bullywugs who worship them!

Who hasn't mistakenly stumbled into a bullywug shaman lair and made a few new friends, am I right?

These are some of the wonderful splash pages from the book. The cover art by Matteo Scalera and Dean White is--to my eyes--evocative of those old pulp fantasy novels from the 70s. And there's more here to help fuel your RPG game:

  • Cosmic Cthuluesque horror!
  • Tragic consequences for practicing forbidden science!
  • Hero loses initiative roll at least twice!
  • Creative problem solving to get out of--not one, but two--jams!
  • Dimension hopping gone awry not once, but twice!

Note: Black Science is rated "Mature".


  1. I must own this comic. Thanks so much for sharing it!

  2. @Aaron, there's a topless fish lady, if you're into that sort of thing. ;)

    @Charles, of course! Too good not to share!
