Dark Matter: The Comic Book

Dark Matter premiered this past Friday, but the origins of this new series are much more comical. 

By Max Tedaldi
Did you catch Dark Matter this past Friday. Damn fun, right? if not, go here. Now and come back in 43 minutes and 21 seconds . 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 … (you see what I did there?).
For the truly lazy (it’s one click away!) here’s the TL;DW version. The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of space. Their memories have been wiped clean, and they have no recollection of who they are or how they got on board. The only clue to their identities is a cargo bay full of weaponry and a destination: a remote mining colony that is about to become a war zone. With the time ticking before their arrival, the crew will have to put the pieces to the puzzle together quickly or put their lives and the lives of a whole colony on the line.
Dark Matter has some serious science fiction auspices behind it, you could even say that Dark Matter has been a show years in the making. Creators Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie worked together on Stargate SG-1, Atlantis and SGU before bringing the team back together for one more ride to create a gorgeous, epic comic-book. Wait, what?! That’s right Dark Matter began its illustrious voyage to the small screen as a comic book mini series that debuted back in 2012. If you’re looking for full-on submersion in the Dark Matter canon look no further. You can grab the full 4-part volume from Dark Horse here and check out that stunning cover art!
