“Pants Optional” is PopCultHQ’s Zoom video interview feature where we connect with individuals within the comic book community. It’s a way to see/hear what creators have been doing during the pandemic, projects which may be in motion, and noteworthy events and happenings taking place in lieu of conventions, appearances, and the weekly NCBD grind.
For Episode XLI, I spoke with Adam Rose. The creator/writer has a brand new bombastic sci-fi series coming from Source Point Press entitled COROLLARY, which takes to a galaxy filled with twin moons, twin suns, and twin creatures. Partnered with illustrator Robert Ahmad and letterer DC Hopkins, COROLLARY is a high-concept series where anything goes and inhabitants of the galaxy might find themselves in cities built on the backs of dragons or arguing with neurotic sentient moons. Ahmad’s art matches the frenetic storytelling with a style that is at once familiar and inventive.
“When I started writing Corollary my goal was to send readers on a full-throttle space odyssey to far-flung worlds anchored in a family drama. I couldn’t be more proud of what Robert and I have come up with and I can’t wait for readers to get it in their hands and blast off to the Corollary Galaxy!” says Rose.
Here is a look at a preview of the debut issue!

In a galaxy filled with twin moons, twin suns, and twin planets, everything comes in twos. Even the people. And if your twin dies … so do you. This is the way it’s always been. So, when Captain Andromeda’s twin loses her life in a far-off military battle, and Captain Andromeda herself DOES NOT die, needless to say, the universe demands answers. Answers that the Captain is willing to give … to the highest bidder, of course. This is COROLLARY – a four-issue bombastic sci-fi romp.
“This was a series I was super excited to work on. Growing up I was a big fan of science fiction, in particular the comic series Valerian as well as cartoons like Bucky O’Hare and Samurai Jack. All these influences and many more can be found within the pages of Corollary,” says Ahmad.
So sit back and hear Adam and I chat about his latest project, talk about the creative team on COROLLARY, and details on this crazy sci-fi/fnatasy world he has of his original concept!
