A plausibly depressing near future in which humanity didn't wise up, Earth has been abandoned, and we're stuck in equally short-termist orbital habitats which are starting to show their age. And, as in any desperate situation, apocalyptic cults are blossoming... ...more

So I went to this comic con in London where I was a guest and while touring me a round, the immensely kind Anthony Garnon showed me this comic book and told me "if you like hard sci-fi and like The Expanse, you'll love this". I checked the pages and wasn't exactly impressed at first. They definitely looked like something... different. Not exactly my cup of tea. But I was intrigued, and read it and it blew my mind.

I did read this in 2000AD where it was first published and Abnett's storytelling with Culbert's visualisation was captivating at the time.

Re-reading as a completed series brings a fluency to the storytelling that is fantastic. The premise of a dead earth, with people living in habitats on the brink of existence is deftly introduced in a few panels.

Our Habitat Security Division (HSD) protagonist, Bridget Kurtis is, basically, the cop in this buddy-movie drama. The buddy is called Brink btw!

Got this because it’s by the creative team behind the very cool Wild’s Ends (a sort of Wind in the Willows/War of the Worlds mash up?)
This is is nothing like that book except in quality. Originally serialized in 2000AD so it reads with the rhythm of Law&Order (short scenes, always starting with a little exposition) but the world of Brink is big time sci-fi.
Earth is abandoned and everyone lives in a series of space stations. We follow two officers who get involved in a possible sect crime (cult)

INJ Culbad is one of my favourite comic book artists. I'll read anything he works on. Add in a deep SF mystery from Dan Abnett, and boom! Sold! ...more
