Black Box Feature

A look inside The Black Box Chronicles at the Wacom Experience Center

February 12, 2024

Join us at the Wacom Experience Center in Portland, OR on February 15th, 2024 for an insightful journey into the world of graphic storytelling with the brilliant artists and creators behind “The Black Box Chronicles.”

The Black Box Chronicles is a sci-fi comics anthology chronicling mankind’s first steps into interstellar space, as pieced together from the records recovered from the wreckage of various spacecraft found throughout the cosmos. It’s a bold series of tales by a luminous collection of comics’ greatest creators spanning centuries of a fantastic yet plausible future.

Set in the age known as The Great Outward Expansion, wherein mankind has not only left Sol Prime to colonize other planets but other star systems as well. Humanity’s natural instinct to explore is given free rein through exponentially advancing technology, reaching new plateaus of knowledge faster than anyone could have imagined. But regardless of how much data and processing power civilization achieves, we all face our final moments when we pass into “The Great Dark.”

The anthology also includes a Visual Encyclopedia, an exhaustive world-building art book exploring the setting and technology of The Black Box Chronicles with sketches, detailed schematics, and both visual and technical explorations of vehicles, devices, space stations, and more.

The Black Box Chronicles was published by Horrible Future! and Magnetic Press.
