If You Love ‘Star Wars’, Try These Comics Next


Star Wars is more popular than ever after the release of last years' seventh installment The Force Awakens rekindled everyone's love for stories set a long time ago in a galaxy far away, and the trailer for this year's Rogue One has that excitement rolling right along.

Comics and sci-fi have a long history together going way back to serialised comic strips of the '30s such as Flash Gordon, and they've only grown in size and scope since then.

Faerber's fascination with the intersection of real people and fantastical powers continues in Anti-Hero, a new digital-first work for Monkeybrain whose first issue imagines how a superhero's lifestyle would impact the stability of his family, with an added twist: what happens when that superhero's secret identity is compromised by an opportunistic street criminal?
