Science is the New Rock ‘N’ Roll! So said Dade Ellis, Simon Grimshaw, Emerson Strange, and Thomas Walker at the dawn of a new age of enlightenment that ushered in a boom in scientific advancement. As the research supergroup World Corp., they became the most celebrated scientists of all time. They changed the world – and we loved them for it. But where did it all go wrong? And when progress is made at any and all cost, who ultimately pays the price? Collects Nowhere Men numbered 1-6. When a writer-artist team is truly clicking, something magical can happen, and it does here. Mr. Stephenson and Mr. Bellegarde juggle multiple characters and locations – in geography and in time – yet personalities and appearances remain distinct. The creative team has also supplied realistic ephemera – personal letters, magazine covers and interviews, World Corp. logos and advertisements – that enrich the experience and fill-in the back story. Nowhere Men has a lot to absorb, and that’s most welcome at a time when some comic books take only minutes to read. (The New York Times).
