Image Comics have announced that seminal book by writer Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals, Solid State) and artist Steven Sanders (Throwaways, Our Love is Real) will release a new paperback edition this September in Five Fists of Science.
The story is set in turn-of-the-century New York City where we witness a “titanic battle over the very fate of mankind”.
True story: in 1899, Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla decided to end war forever by joining forces to rid the world of evil. With Twain’s connections and Tesla’s inventions, they went into business selling world peace. The tale of what unfolded next can only now be told: the duo collided with Edison and Morgan, an evil science cabal merging the Black Arts and the Industrial Age.
Five Fists of Science (Diamond code: JUL170742, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0436-9) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, September 13th and bookstores Tuesday, September 19th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, August 7th.
