Retroworld

Illustrated by Bazal and Cédric Peyravernay

Humans have scattered and occupied the known universe for so long that many worlds have forgotten their true, Earthly origins. The planets which retain the memory of the "Formers" have allied together, creating a Galactic Federation, whereas the "Retros" are worlds that have returned to a more archaic, primitive, and isolationist way of life. The Federation entrusts its best agent, Marce, with a delicate, yet vital, mission to help a retro world called Almagiel evolve. But political machinations, brutal living conditions, and deadly creatures may prove to be the agent's undoing.

Bazal (Oscar Bazaldua) is a veteran Mexican comics artist whose work includes "Retroworld," also from Humanoids.

Cédric Peyravernay is a character designer and 3D artist for numerous computer game companies.

"Retroworld is actually a lot more entertaining than Star Trek. It has sex (although the space EU ambassador doesn’t get any, natch- only the local primitive), and violence, and fights with giant space crustaceans in it, for instance. It also has great art." - When Falls the Coliseum "'Retroworld' is actually a lot more entertaining than ‘Star Trek.’ It has sex...and violence, and fights with giant space crustaceans in it, for instance. It also has great art." - thedabbler.co.uk "This is the level of imagination of what science fiction graphic novels are suppose to be and Humanoids always delivers." - SciFiMonkeys.com
