Interstellar Prequel Comic: What Happened Before Nolan's Epic?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Christopher Nolan clearly thought about the world of Interstellar, long before he shot his first scene. Sure, his script would give us those unforgettable Interstellar quotes, but one has to wonder, what happened before Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper headed off into the deep unknown to save the human race?

Interstellar Comic

That answer has arrived in the form of a seven page comic that serves as an Interstellar prequel and is available over at Wired.

Nolan’s handprints are all over this comic as he edited, but the story comes from veteran comic artist Sean Gordon Murphy.

The story of Absolute Zero (don’t read on if you haven’t seen Interstellar yet!) follows Dr. Mann and his efforts to go through the wormhole to find a hospitable planet before Cooper even took off.

This was NASA’s first attempt at saving the world.

What happened to Dr. Mann? That question is answered in the comic.

Interstellar is an international blockbuster, grossing more than $320 million thus far.

Interstellar Quotes

We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.


Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dr. Brand
