Enjoy the dark epic space empire theme of Twilight Imperium 3?

If so, then I highly recommend you check out the Metabarons graphic novel series. The series of 13 books is a dark, galaxy-spanning, epic space opera set in the far flung future. The art is fantastic, and the story I found to get better with every page. The books have it all: huge space battles; bizarre, secret factions (ala’ Dune); swashbuckling adventure; and writing with a wicked sense of humor that seems to take pleasure in torturing the main characters of the story.

The series is written and drawn by the team of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Juan Jimenez and was originally a huge success in Europe. After several years, the series was finally published in English and has quite cult following here now. Metabarons has even spawned two spinoff series (The Incal and Technopriests) as well as an RPG.

Anyway, if you’re interested in checking it out, let me know, and I can hook you up with a copy to see if you would enjoy it.
