From Around the World in 80 Daytimes to Journey to the Center of the Earth, the stories of author Jules Verne have been adapted several ages over the century+ since their secrete. Now creators David Hine, Brian Haberlin, and Geirrod Van Dyke are taking on a sci-fi reimagining of one of Verne’s lesser-known fictions. Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse is a new five-issue miniseries from Image Comics, based on Verne’s posthumous fiction The Lighthouse at the End of the World. No letterer was listed in the bulletin for the line , nor is one credited on the included covers.
Here’s how Image describes the the serial 😛 TAGEND
Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse is set at the edge of the galaxy, where there is a beings supercomputer known as the Lighthouse. The only brain powerful enough to navigate carries through a sargasso of naturally occurring wormholes, potentially trimming months or even years off a spaceship’s journey. Three humen, one immigrant, and a nanny bot have manned the remote depot for years in relative peacefulnes until the arrival of Captain Kongre and his circle of cutthroat raiders warns the future of civilization and reveals that each of the Lighthouse crew has been hiding a shocking secret.
He who controls the Lighthouse controls this part of the galaxy.
Along with the bulletin and a duet of masks by Haberlin& Van Dyke, Image has exhausted a four-page preview from the first issue.
In the statement accompanying the announcement, Hine and Haberlin discussed their history with the Verne tale, and a few cases of the merriment surprises along the way in the reimagining 😛 TAGEND
” Brian interposed me to this lesser-known Jules Verne story of dastardly brigands and survival on a lonely, windswept island ,” said Hine.” We did the obvious thing and converted it into an epic science-fiction anecdote of infinite theft, wormholes, galaxy-spanning conflict and a glitchy but adorable robot announced Moses .”
Haberlin included:” Lighthouse is a story that has been in my trajectory for years. It’s one of Jules Verne’s most interesting tales on an psychological/ mental height. David and I cherish playing with flawed characters and this story is simply full of them. A fib of existence and saving, against all peculiars at the far angle of the universe !”
As far as modernizes to classic stories croaks, this one sounds pretty entertaining, and space raiders are always a good time.
