    STRANGE SCIENCE FANTASY #1

    Publisher:
    IDW Publishing
    Writers: Scott Morse
    Pencils: Scott Morse
    Covers: Scott Morse

    This tongue-in-cheek commentary is written and illustrated by award-winning creator Scott Morse. Each chapter is a seemingly stand-alone tale, grounded by insane landscapes and surprising characters. Take, for instance, this first installment’s “Dawn of the Gearheads!,” where hip hot-rodders take over a world gone crazy, DaddyO! Or the cinema-minded noir throw-back "The Projectionist.” Strange Science Fantasy harkens back to the inspired pre-hero comics of the Golden Age! Issue 1 offers a full 28 pages of story and art plus a bonus 1-page Paul Pope strip!
