Review: Aphrodite IX - Rebirth

Image
  The Aphrodite protocol was initiated in an attempt to save humanity from a predicted extinction level event. Its mission was to engineer humans that could survive via technological singularity and genetic enhancement to repopulate the Earth. It succeeded in unexpected ways and two factions arose out of the ashes of the old world, both occupying the same narrow strip of inhabitable land near the equator. In the East, various tribes of genetically enhanced humans collectively called the Gen live in a city called Genesis under a theocratic monarchy. In the west, cybernetically-enhanced humans reside in the city of Speros in a totalitarian party controlled state. Their centuries-long conflict is about to come to an end. In Speros a spacecraft is being constructed to establish a lunar colony. Before it can be launched it comes under attack from Gen warriors riding 'drakes' - huge flying reptiles - and is destroyed.  The cyborgs retaliate, giving chase in their airborne 'drones

Hyperphase

Image
Hyperphase (hyperdimensional phase transition) From the perspective of a traveller, it is the rest of the universe that becomes undetectable. The spacecraft is colloquially described as moving through “hyperspace”, though this term does not describe an actual spacetime reference point. The hyperdimensional field has a fifth-dimensional degree of freedom but the craft itself is located only within its own artificial bubble universe. Transition to and from hyperphase is accompanied by a distinctive glow of Cherenkov radiation (within the indigo to ultraviolet spectrum). This is caused by virtual gluons emitted by the propulsion field moving faster than the time-dilated photons from the craft itself. Whilst the craft is “in hyperspace” this glow continues from the perspective of the traveller as the radiation is trapped at the boundary of the hyperdimensional field. … from my self-published comic  Infinity Dragonfly:  https://scificomicnexus.blogspot.com/.../infinity ... #infinitydragonfl

Review: Infinity 8

Image
  The Infinity is a huge intergalactic city ship en route from the Milky Way to the Andromeda galaxy, a trip of two million light years. It is home to 880,000 inhabitants from a range of starfaring species, only a small fraction of them human. One day the ship's journey comes to an abrupt halt. Its path is blocked by a huge debris field composed of.. . death.   Chunks of planets containing graves and mausoleums. Coffins. Tombstones. The remains of large organic spacecraft. Countless alien corpses. The ship cannot safely navigate through such obstacles without gaining more information. Exploring the field will take time, however, and the ship is on a tight schedule.    Luckily, a solution is at hand. The captain of the Infinity is a Ton Sharr: a large aquatic being who lives in a vast liquid-filled space within the ship and communicates with the crew telepathically. His species has the unique ability of being able to explore different parallel realities. He can create an eight-ho

Review: Cosmos

Image
A lone figure wanders through space in the Advent universe. He is the Outcast, the only survivor from another universe which was destroyed by mysterious dark forces... forces which continue to destroy many other realms in the grand multiverse of which our reality is only one part. In an outpost at the end of time a man called Neo and his two robot assistants witness the death of their universe (protected by "a pocket of chronosyncronous reality") and jump into their time sled on a mission to reverse the apocalypse by travelling back in time to the source of the disturbance: Earth in the 21st century... An alien spacecraft attacks Moonbase Alpha, a pre-emptive strike in the mission to destroy all life on Earth. This is the flagship of the Regime Empire from the Andromeda galaxy, which has come to Earth seeking a powerful relic that will grant supreme power to whoever claims it. Commander Wildfire flees the dying base in her shuttle, carrying the mysterious Prometheus crystal

Review: Terranauts

Image
1950s America: One night a group of teenagers on a dare go 'spelunking', rapelling into a big hole in the desert. This is not just any old hole in the ground, however, it is the site of a nuclear bomb test some years earlier. When the kids fail to return the next day, the local sheriff goes to investigate... and he too disappears. The authorities are called, not just the police but also a trio of specialists, the 'Terranauts', who are called upon by the governments of the world when inexplicable phenomena arise. They are: Professor Pilar Chavez, geologist and mineralogist from Brazil; Doctor Nickolos Karathanos, palaeontologist from Greece and Doctor Thaddeaus Donovan, biologist from America. They get to work and soon uncover signs that some kind of large flying reptile is responsible for the disappearances... has Man's splitting of the atom unleashed some prehistoric monster upon the world? Terranauts is a retro delight from Don Secrease (script and colours) and

FREE SCI-FI COMICS: The Wasteland Beyond The Wall

The year is 2015, but not as we know it... In 1955 a new era of war began with the eruption of the Bio wars, pitting the uncontested United American Territories against the Communist Front of Indochina. The conflict ended in 1975 when, for the first time in history, America lost. From the ashes rose a new world power: The First United Republic of America. Merging with Canada and occupying most of Central and South America, using the latter for its natural resources and subjugating a percentage of the populace to forced labour. A five story high, fully manned wall was built on the Mexican border. South of it, large industrial complexes were built to fuel the American war machine. The Wasteland Beyond the Wall  by British writer and artist Darcy Payton-Barnard is a violent, political action-packed dystopian thriller. A lone gunslinger in the Mexican desert hunts down a band of cannibalistic vigilantes called the Mortal Knights. Her gun is not her only weapon; a cybernetic implant in her

Review: Alien (2021)

Image
"Dark like this gets into you. Penetrates you. Tightens around your skull. Presses into your eye sockets until something pops and even the memory of light - even the belief in light - drains away. " 2200. Gabriel Cruz is retiring as security chief of the multinational corporation Weyland-Yutani's Epsilon Station. Returning home to Earth, he hopes to repair his relationship with his estranged son Danny. Twenty-one years ago he was a soldier. His unit was all but totally wiped out on the colony LV-426 which was overrun by hostile life-forms... the xenomorphs . Ridley Scott's Alien (1979) was the defining space horror film. Sure, science fiction had scary monsters before (the lobster-clawed, bug-eyed mutants in This Island Earth (1955) certainly stand out) but in Alien the full implications of a perfect natural predator are played out, alongside the unearthing of humankind's deepest fears and revulsions of aggressive non-human life. The xenomorph combines the
