Ministry of Space

I got back into some new comics I’ve had on my shelf for a while now this past weekend. I’ve been finding reading comics is my way of just unwinding and usually I love to read things that may have depth, but you can also gloss over that if you want. But I just read Ministry of Space written by Warren Ellis. Yes, my Warren Ellis kick continues.

Ministry of Space was a very brief series, just 3 issues, so only one trade volume. I also didn’t really know what to think of it, even when I finished it. I read the note at the end of the volume by Ellis and then much of what I read clicked in for me. I will be reading it again with the new knowledge.

That isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did. It’s about space, WWII and beyond, and crazy adventures in our world but things are quite the same. That combination is a winner for me. But I also had a lot of questions when I finished so I was glad that Ellis said more at the end of the volume to explain some of the things he wrote about.

I don’t want to give away the story, but I do recommend it, if you are inclined to read a quick comic about space and the British Empire.
