After finishing up on ‘The Wake’ with writer Scott Snyder, it seems Sean Murphy has been a busy man. To start off Wired has debuted a seven-page prequel comic to Chirstopher Nolan’s latest film featuring art by Sean Gordon Murphy (The Wake, Punk Rock Jesus). We’re going to issue a spoiler warning though if you haven’t seen the film, as the prequel comic tells the story of a very prominent cameo in the film. Titled “Absolute Zero,” they describe the comic as follows:
“Before Cooper left his daughter to find humanity a new home in space, there were the Lazarus missions. Led by Dr. Mann, this was NASA’s first attempt to locate a hospitable exoplanet. So what happened to Mann on the other side of the wormhole?”
You can read the full comic by clicking here, but you can also own it in print in the December issue of Wired which was guest-edited by Nolan himself. Interstellar is currently playing in theaters and has brought in over $320 million at the global box office.
Secondly announced last week by Mark Millar (KickAss), himself and Sean Murphy will be creating a new comic called Chrononauts presumably to be published by Images Comics. Although not a lot has been said at the moment we can gather, through the name and the few images that have been posted on Entertainment Weekly, that it should be about time travelling astronauts!!
Writer Rick Remender and artist Sean Murphy are comic-book A-listers who are finally working together, on a project that is all about the yin and the yang.
Their Image Comics series Tokyo Ghost with colorist Matt Hollingsworth has already had a year spent on building a dystopian land ruled by entertainment and consumers desperately needing their digital fix. All the while, though, a natural haven has re-emerged for humanity on the other side of the world.
