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

Rick Remender is a baaaaaad man! I love Deadly Class, Low, and now Black Science. He creates a world with, literally, infinite possibilities and does it in a way that sounds plausible without unnecessarily over-complicating the science speak. His characters are real, believable, flawed, and fun. The plot is super bananas but in a great way. I loved the crazy new worlds he creates. The art by Matteo Scalera is fantastic. The new worlds are full of imagination and wonder. Slight nitpick, the brunette ladies all look too similar. Overall, a great start to a series. Nearly perfect.
