Hip-Hop, Sci-Fi and Kung Fu all hit the turn-tables for the mash-up mix of the year! Cartoonist/force of nature Yehudi Mercado (Pantalones, TX, Rocket Salvage) sets his sights on 1980s Brooklyn and Wax, a young mix-master who scratches the perfect beat and accidentally summons a UFO that transports his family, best friend, and current crush to the robot-dominated planet of Discopia. Now Wax and his crew must master the intergalactic musical martial art of Sci-Fu to fight the power and save Earth. Word to your mother.

    Comic Crusaders - Bryan Spaulding Feb 19, 2018

    Sci-Fu wraps itself up in an inter-dimensional blanket of Kung-Fu, Hip Hop fun. Give credit to the creator Yehudi Mercado for not only writing a fun and compelling story, but animating the entire world himself. Mercado proves to be a rising star in comics with this book and we should all take notice of his talent. I would highly recommend picking up this graphic novel, popping in an old Run DMC cassette tape, and having some fun. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Mar 2, 2018

    By the time I finished reading Sci-Fu, I had a huge smile on my face. I'd be very excited to see a sequel or animated adaptation. Mercado's comic could just as well be a beautiful storyboard. Sci-Fu was fun. It had fun bridging the generation gaps. It will be a great gift for the young adults in your life that you may want to get into comics, or maybe just for yourself. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 14, 2018

    Reading this, you can tell Mercado is having fun with this creation. There's lots of twists and turns and I'm not going to ruin it all. There's a lot here I want explored more, I want to see another volume. There's some elements that could have been fleshed out more but overall, this is an entertaining debut. I'd say it's unexpected but Mercado is a talent where you expect something as good as this. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Sam King Apr 12, 2018

    The bottom line is that this one just needed some more editing to nail things out and give them a glossy finish. The writer can clearly tell a story, but they just need to finesse the way they go about it. Read Full Review
