Format: Paperback
It is encouraging to see the recent resurgence of science fiction stories from DC. The genre has a long and storied history with the company, including the Mystery in Space title itself. Regrettably it doesn't have a large enough fan base to consistently warrant the publication of monthly titles and thus has only been produced on a limited basis. Fortunately in recent years, we have seen the release of numerous quality mini series, among them Planet Heist, Rann Thanagar War, and the Omega Men. This trade continues that trend and the result is yet another winner. At DC, when one is taking a journey through the cosmos, there is arguably no one better to have at the helm than Jim Starlin. This type of story has become his mainstay and rightfully so. In this case, he explores two lesser known characters in Captain Comet and the Weird by way of two separate yet intertwined stories, both heading towards a fateful and inevitable denouement. The artwork, by Shane Davis and Starlin himself, is top notch and one of the strengths of the book. DC has already announced new sci fi series for the upcoming months, including another project by Starlin, and that certainly is good news indeed. Kudos to the company for realizing this genre does have popularity and can still be a viable and entertaining part of their universe and the comic book industry as a whole.

Format: Paperback
This is the best of both worlds, compressed writing with modern art! unlike some stories of the 21st century, Jim Starlin uses heavy narration which makes each chapter a lengthy read, it works here, It's not just talking heads, there is always action! If you're not familiar with the work of Shane Davis you will enjoy his cosmic backgrounds and his rendering of Tyrone the Pit bull. You really don't need to be well versed in DC lore to enjoy the story, my only complaint is they didn't publish all eight issues in one volume. Rann Thanagar Holy War(average) & Strange Adventures (ehh) continue some plot points but, I would just stick with Mystery In Space and read it over and over.
