FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics is the story of Adam Hardy: Young, brash and smart, he's a rising star at the FBP, but when a gravity failure leads to the creation of an alternate dimension known as a "BubbleVerse," Adam is sent on a rescue mission and finds his skills and abilities pushed to their limits when he discovers his partner has a different agenda...

Praise For FBP

“If this stellar beginning is any indication of what's to follow, we're in for a delightfully unpredictable ride. Oliver and Rodriguez have something unique on their hands, and I'm looking forward to what they've got up their sleeves for the next issue.”—IGN

 “FBP sets the bar high for the rest of the year’s new releases from Vertigo.”—A.V. Club/The Onion
 
“A fantastic start to an exciting new series and a reminder of what a quality powerhouse Vertigo is and can be. It's also a nice reminder of why the industry needs more books from Vertigo, not less. A higher quantity of smart, beautifully executed comics that explore the fantastical and bizarre without being about traditional superheroes is a very good thing.”—Comic Book Resources
