“I’ve seen things. Terrible things… but a black box never forgets.”

– The Scavenger

In the future, the universe is alive with human explorers. Space travel is no longer the domain of nations and corporations, but a path available to everyday people. Not all journeys end where they originally set forth, and many result in tragedy. Such is the way in the Epoch of Exploration.

Each starfaring spacecraft is equipped with a comprehensive flight data recorder: a Black Box. Salvaging the remnants of a crashed spacecraft can be a highly lucrative business. Recovering the details behind a tragic disaster can reveal hidden truths and untold personal stories, as well as hint towards greater secrets…

The tales in BLACK BOX CHRONICLES are told by The Scavenger, who has been collecting salvaged boxes for decades across the known galaxy. The stories in this anthology are from his prized collection, pieces of a puzzle he has yet to complete…

Art by Gavin Smith and color by Flavio Dispenza.
