Nowhere Men Premiering from Image in November

As the solicit says, “Science is the new rock ‘n’ roll in Nowhere Men.”

Marking Image publisher Eric Stephenson’s return to comic writing, Nowhere Men follows Dade Ellis, Simon Grimshaw, Emerson Strange, and Thomas Walker, the “Fab Four of Science,” men who ushered in all kinds of scientific advancements and became the most celebrated scientists of all time. Despite this, somewhere along the way, it all went wrong.

With Stephenson writing, Nate Bellegarde on art, and Jordie Bellaire on coloring duty, Nowhere Men promises to be a comic that is not only well-written, but also beautifully rendered.

Stephenson had this to say about the book: “For years, I’ve been fascinated by the notion of a world where science shaped our culture in a similar way to popular music back in the 1960s. We’ve seen hints of that world in film and television, but I’ve always wondered what burden being at the forefront of that kind of cultural revolution would carry. The Beatles fell apart at the end of the ’60s – if science did actually supplant rock ‘n’ roll, how would the trailblazers of that movement fare? And if an individual like Steve Jobs could have such a profound impact on society, what would happen if a group of equally brilliant minds joined together with a common cause?”

On sale November 21st, Nowhere Men promises to add another stellar title to its current lineup, and it looks to be one that I’ll certainly enjoy. Few things make me happier than science or comics, but together, the combination is sure to be amazing.
