Los Angeles-based artist Jed McGowan specializes in what might be called wordless biological/geological/astrophysics comics. A niche but a good one. His previous efforts include the Xeric-winning Lone Pine , and webcomics on Voyager’s journey through space, a volcanic eruption near Hawaii, and an eerie comic about interplanetary exploration.
We’ve linked to a few of Jed McGowan’s wordless comics before—including Hawaii, a best in show among geological comics, and Voyager, a wordless comic about a space probe. Despite the dry-sounding material, Xeris-winner McGowan (Lone Pines) presents them in a visually arresting way.
This time out, he’s got a story to tell, and it’s a strange and eerie one entitled Control Room. What happens when that space probe lands on Mars with several sisters aboard? Hit the link to find out.
