My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Trapped on a planet millions of light years away from Earth, five scientists must survive sub-zero temperatures and horrific alien creatures as they make their way across the dead, frozen landscape to their base in this action-packed graphic novel.
It is the age of space exploration, and five scientists travel 80 million light years from home to study the planet of Siberia, the location of Earth’s 56th colony. Completely covered with dense snow and steep mountains, Siberia’s poles reach temperatures of -300° F with icy winds of close to 200 mph.
After their shuttle crashes, the surviving scientists must walk across hundreds of miles of frozen wasteland to find the terrain basecamp. Between the biting cold, devastating snow storms, and horrific alien creatures, their chances of survival are close to absolute zero. In Siberia 56, author Christophe Bec imagines a hostile and fascinating world that harkens to the very best of the science fiction and horror genres. Superbly illustrated by Alexis Sentenac, this stunning work offers a chilling tale of survival in the vast recesses of a dying planet.
Stunning art and a fascinating story!As a big sci-fi fan did I truly enjoy reading this graphic novel. I did get Prometheus vibe now and then while I read it. Which was only nice since I liked the movie.
The Siberia is Earth’s 56th colony and the volume includes three stories which are all connected with each other. I did think that the first story was the best with the shuttle crashing on the planet and the surviving members having to trek over the plane to safety. A trek through a frozen world with dangerous alien creatures. The next two stories both show past expeditions and the continuation the storyline in the first story.
Siberia 56 is really great and will without a doubt appeal to sci-fi fans!
