ROBERT SILVERBERG'S DOWNWARD TO THE EARTH

Product Review (submitted on May 24, 2018):
Silverberg is one of the top names in science fiction, with countless awards, Hugos, Nebulas, etc. Not since the 1980s DC graphic novels have I seen a Silverberg story adapted to comics. And this is a very good, very unusual one. Nearly impossible to describe...it's about earth colonizing a distant planet with two species that we exploit, but know little about. Two men are destined to learn much more, one for selfish purposes, the other far more altruistic but still naïve. This also has some fine art, adult themes, and it sure makes me think of the metaphysical kind of science fiction that Philip K. Dick is known for.
