- "SCIENCE IS THE NEW ROCK 'N' ROLL " So said Dade Ellis, Simon Grimshaw, Emerson Strange, and Thomas Walker at the dawn of a new age of enlightenment that ushered in a boom in scientific advancement. As the research supergroup World Corp., they became the most celebrated scientists of all time. They changed the world -- and we loved them for it. But where did it all go wrong? And when progress is made at any and all cost, who ultimately pays the price?

- ''When a writer-artist team is truly clicking, something magical can happen, and it does here. Mr. Stephenson and Mr. Bellegarde juggle multiple characters and locations - in geography and in time - yet personalities and appearances remain distinct. The creative team has also supplied realistic ephemera - personal letters, magazine covers and interviews, World Corp. logos and advertisements - that enrich the experience and fill-in the back story. "Nowhere Men" has a lot to absorb, and that's most welcome at a time when some comic books take only minutes to read.'' - The New York Times
