I really enjoyed Roche Limit when it kicked off several months ago, and have enjoy the series tremendously. In May creators Michael Moreci, Kyle Charles, and Vic Malhotra are pulling a stunt that works in the universe.

In ROCHE LIMIT: CLANDESTINY #1, it’s 75 years after the events that left the Roche Limit colony in flames. When a crew of military and science personnel are sent to the forgotten and desolate planet on a mysterious expedition, they quickly learn its dark secrets—and that their mission is not what they thought it to be. With danger lurking all around, the crew members fight to find a way off the planet and resist the mysterious presence that haunts them all.    

This is something I don’t hate. Jumping back and forth in time – especially if it provides necessary world building, and introduces the How and Why questions that will spring  up – is definitely a gimmick that some may have a problem with, but for this story I think this is an interesting way to introduce the next chapter.

“The success of Roche Limit has been more than I could ever hope for, considering it’s a pretty out-there book,” said Moreci in a prepared statement. “What’s exciting is this new volume pushes things further, introducing a whole new cast and story while maintaining the thematic core that readers have loved so far.”

What would be really interesting is if the creators jump back in time to 20 years after the end of the first series.
