Created and written by Andrew E. C. Gaska, Critical Millennium is a sci-fi graphic novel series that follows mankind’s first foray out of the solar system, utilizing a unique faster than light propulsion system that relies on creating miniature black holes to propel the ship at fantastic speeds (distorting space around the ship). Earth system’s resources have all been used up, and new planets are needed if humanity is to survive.
A monumental tale of the mankind’s future in space, Critical Millennium follows a young man’s wish to realize his grandparents dream of seeing mankind reach the stars, as humanity attempts to destroy itself and him in the process. Critical Millennium is a environmentally conscious and socially aware commentary on race, economics, terrorism, big business, and the blight that is human nature.
