Six from Sirius Covers and More

Six from Sirius, mini-series, Epic ComicsSix from Sirius, created and written by Doug Moench and illustrated by Paul Gulacy was a 4-issue mini-series  published by Epic Comics in 1984. The story is self-contained outside any of the other universes in the comic book publishing houses. The story centers around a group of six agents of an intergalactic governmental organization. It’s kind of like a spy story in space.

Epic Comics was a comic book imprint from the Marvel Comics Group. It was created to publish stories like these that often targeted a mature audience. It was also creator-centered, so the writers and artists retained the rights to the books.

Here are the covers to the mini-series.

These biographies are now 29 years out of date but it’s interesting to see what was being said about them back then. Both are a couple of our favorite creators. We liked Doug Moench’s Aztec Ace and Paul Gulacy’s Black Widow (see the images at the bottom of the linked post).

  1. Anybody know of anything similar out there? I own Six from Sirius (in tradepb form), and I must’ve read that thing 20 times. It’s a great read, highly recommended.

    1. Scout and Grimjack are both from the same era and can be considered dystopian future sci-fi. If you like Moench, his Aztec Ace is also good. There are fantastic stories in the Heavy Metal series. We’d recommend starting with those.

      1. Ah, thank you so much! I’m making note of these titles (I suppose I should’ve made note of Aztec Ace already).
