INFINITY 8 vol. 3: THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO EMMA, by Lewis Trondheim, Zep, and Dominique Bertail
The third arc in the eight-part space opera introduces Marshal Emma O'Mara, an independent peace officer who also dedicates her life to the teachings of the Tholmanist space-church. When the Infinity 8 cruise ship is stopped by the mysterious floating barricade of debris, she sees an opportunity to retrieve a fabled, sacred artifact and uses her network of contacts in the criminal mercenary underworld to negotiate a plan to find it. But when you gather mercenaries with different agendas, things rarely go your way . . . there is no honor among thieves. Mix in a deadly bodyguard robot locked on its last set of unclear commands and the stakes reach a real life-or-death level . . . Written by series co-creator Lewis Trondheim and award-winning writer Fabian Vehlmann (Beautiful Darkness, Last Days of an Immortal), and illustrated by celebrated artist Olivier Balez, this sci-fi treasure hunt pits antihero vs antihero vs logic-driven robot in a caper that could unveil a secret so big, the universe itself could teeter on the brink of chaos!
