Collects UNIVERSE! (digital edition) #1-5.
The Eisner-nominated series of self-contained, and somehow connected, sci-fi tales involving alien life, robot love, corporate greed, and travels 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!”
