New Interstellar Comic Sheds More Light on Dr Mann's Lazarus Missions

Considering how many questions we all had at the end of Interstellar, it seems to make perfect sense that Christopher Nolan would expand the very confusing universe in a comic. But as it turns out, the comic doesn't address any of the pertinent questions about (spoilers!) what the heck happened in those bookcases, who these futuristic humans are, why they wanted to help us, whether Brand's colony was a success or not, or any of the other questions we actually care about. Instead, he and artist Sean Gordon Murphy wrote a short comic to expand the backstory of Matt Damon's character, Dr. Mann and the Lazarus missions.

 

The official description of the comic, which is titled "Absolute Zero," reads: "Before Cooper left his daughter to find humanity a new home in space, there were the Lazarus missions. Led by Dr. Mann, this was NASA's first attempt to locate a hospitable exoplanet. So what happened to Mann on the other side of the wormhole? We teamed Christopher Nolan with award-winning comic-book artist Sean Gordon Murphy to tell Mann's story."
