Official Press Release
This September Shadowline/Image Comics brings back robots, spacemen and dames to their pulp roots with the three-issue mini-series, M-THEORY!
“It’s long overdue for sci-fi pulp fiction to get back to its roots,” said co-writer Dwight L. MacPherson. “My cohorts, Bruce Brown and Mark Barentine, are also massive fans of the genre and cannot wait to go all out!”
The three issue mini-series, co-written by Dwight L. MacPherson and Bruce Brown with artist Mark Barentine, is an action-packed romp exploring every facet of science fiction featured in the golden age of pulp novels. In the first issue alone, a government scientist receives a startling transmission of extraterrestrial origin leading to terrifying discoveries leading them to the outer reaches of our galaxy and a shocking nemesis like none other!
Shadowline President Jim Valentino added, “Pulp fiction has received its due in film, so it’s a real pleasure to see Bruce, Dwight and Mark really go at it with such a high level of passion and vigor in the comic book format. I’m really looking forward to the results.”
M-THEORY, a three-issue 32-page full color mini-series at $3.50, will be in stores September 17th.
