Television from Outer Space

Comics by Agir, set in the dome complex of a space colony that could be what our future in space looks like. Most people rarely travel in space due to the disruption that relativistic effects can create in one's life, and the strain it can put on one's relationships. So they live much the same way we do, albeit in a more confined volume. Naturally, they consume a lot of media.

The history of the future, one episode at a time.

In Television from Outer Space, we rebroadcast selected cultural emanations from the 5th millenium AD using cutting-edge high-tech turn-of-the-century newspaper printing technology. So strap in for a high-octane thrill-ride through the prime-time lineup of soap operas, newsmagazines, cooking shows and gossip!
