Overview


The hit series from Charles Soule (Poe Dameron, Daredevil) and Alberto
Jiménez Alberquerque (Mystery Girl) is now available for just $10!
Newly-elected president Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and a failing health care system. But in a letter penned by the outgoing president, Blades learns the truth that redefines
"critical": seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they're getting close—assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination.

President
Blades has just become the most powerful man on the planet. This planet.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I love political thrillers and I love science fiction, and Letter 44 blends these genres perfectly to make something wholly original and fascinating. The fact that Charles Soule takes care to get the scientific and technical details right gives the more fantastic ideas all the more gravitas. His stories are filled with excitement, intrigue, and mind-blowing revelations-that's my kind of science fiction!” Andy Howell,

Letter 44 is a great read! It presents a very plausible, well-researched scenario on how NASA-or an entity like it-might mount an extensive, high-stakes space exploration mission to save mankind. The story touches on design and construction, astronaut selection,
challenges of lengthy manned space travel and even the political influences that have an all-too-real effect on space budgeting and planning. I'm a fan!”
Ed Stanton, NASA Orion Engineer, Kennedy Space Center

PASTE MAGAZINE -- This comic has it all: terrorism,
politically motivated sex, sex in space, alien-human hybrids, orbital weapon platforms, Biblical allusions and underground bunkers-plus plenty of riffs on real history.

BOING BOING - There's a lot going on here and lots of places to get potentially lost, but Letter 44 never lets up, never falters. I found this an extremely satisfying work of original, sweeping science fiction in comic book form.

COMICS ALLIANCE - Blending sci-fi drama with political intrigue, Letter 44 is in a genre of its own.
