Grant McKay once said that “there is no authority but yourself,” one of the main characters in ‘Black Science.’ As Grant McKay and the other explorers of myriad dimensions and alternate universes will soon discover, that declaration is not entirely true. Writer Rick Remender, artist Matteo Scalera, colorist Dean White, and letterer Rus Wooten drop their protagonists into surprising places and situations that help to transform their views and expectations.

Powerful expressions of faith, hope and love are manifested in brilliant colours that characterise the Luca della Robbia glazed terracotta sculptures from the Renaissance, explored in an exhibition organised by the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, the United States of America.
