At the height of Victoria's reign, a scientific expedition to Mars has vanished and the daring rescue mission is now a race against time and space. When control is wrested from fellow scientists and given to a heroic crew of Her Majesty' Navy, can the two groups work together to save the men of the first voyage? A young naval officer is thrust into command during a desperate battle in the skies above the Mediterranean. In his hands lies the fate of not only his ship and crew, but dozens of innocent lives. Will he accomplish the mission? Or doom them all? Jules Verne meets Star Trek in Aether and Empire, a tale of adventure, mystery, and terror!

    A riveting inaugural issue, Aether and Empire #1 introduces readers to a time much like our own nineteenth century, but with the addition of fantastical flying ships. The action, suspense and mystery are all served up in equal parts making this an instant treasure for your comic collection. Read Full Review

    ther & Empire is another title that will help measure your local shop's "Indie Friendly Factor". I'm going toss out a guess that less than half the comic shops in the US ordered this series for the rack, but it should be available for reorder if you ask your shop to place an order for you. Like high-adventure and sci-fi mixed up with fantasy? This is definitely worth checking out. Grab the preview PDF and decide for yourself. I'm going to be back for issue #2 and I've started pre-ordering now that I'm aware of it. This is exactly the kind of comic I love to support and I'd love to see it reach a wider audience!
