STEAMPUNK CLASSIC FIVE FISTS OF
SCIENCE BACK IN PRINT THIS SEPTEMBER WITH A NEW PAPERBACK EDITION
Featuring a brand-new cover
PORTLAND, OR, 07/27/2017 — Matt Fraction (SEX CRIMINALS, SOLID STATE) and artist Steven Sanders (THROWAWAYS, Our Love is Real) will release a new paperback edition of FIVE FISTS OF SCIENCE this September.
True story: in 1899, Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla decided to end war forever by joining forces to rid the world of evil. With Twain's connections and Tesla's inventions, they went into business selling world peace. The tale of what unfolded next can only now be told: the duo collided with Edison and Morgan, an evil science cabal merging the Black Arts and the Industrial Age.
Turn-of-the-century New York City sets the stage for a titanic battle over the very fate of mankind in this graphic novel, back in print once again this fall.

“An excellent blend of both wit and mild historical/fictional accuracy creates a very
entertaining read.” —Multiversity Comics
“Funny, gorgeous, and deeply weird.” —NPR
“By turns gleefully funny and creepy, it's a perfect, fun read for science and history
wonks.” —Library Journal
