The "director's cut" edition of the sprawling super-hero epic from Love and Rockets.
Originally serialized in Love and Rockets New Stories, âTi-Girls Adventuresâ managed to be both a rollickingly creative super-hero joyride (featuring three separate super-teams and over two dozen characters) that ranged from the other side of the universe to Maggieâs shabby apartment, and a genuinely dramatic fable about madness, grief, and motherhood as Penny Centuryâs decades-long quest to become a genuine super-heroine are finally, and tragically, fulfilled.
In addition to introducing a plethora of wild new characters, God and Science brings in many older characters from Jaimeâs universe, some from seemingly throwaway shorter strips and some from Maggieâs day-to-day world (including some real surprises). The main heroine of the story, forming a bridge between the ârealisticâ Maggie stories and the super-heroic extravaganza is âAngel,â Maggieâs sweet-tempered and athletic new roommate and best friend, and now herself an aspiring super-heroine.
Aside from being presented in a large format that really displays Jaime Hernandezâs stunning art, God and Science will be a âdirectorâs cutâ version that includes a full 30 new pages in addition to the original 100-page epic, including four new full-color faux Ti-Girls covers, several expansions of scenes, an epilogue set back in Maggieâs apartment, and a long fantasy/timewarp sequence that draws the focus back on Pennyâs awful predicament.Black & white throughout
