Read the Comic Prequel to Interstellar from Director Christopher Nolan Here

I managed to catch Interstellar in a true IMAX screen in the States last week and it was certainly the most cinematic experience I've had all year.

Now I'm far from a Nolan fanatic, partly because his films have always seemed cold and distant to me, but Interstellar was a film which really grabbed me - for the science fiction, the grand sweep but also the intimate personality and its surprising warmth.

But it is definitely a film which is dividing opinion and throwing up many questions and intense conversations - which can only be a good thing. If you're interested in the actual physics which underlie the piece, you can get The Science of Interstellar, a tome be theoretical physicist Kip Thorne - who also consulted on the film and was one of the executive producers.

And if you're more interested in getting under the skin of the story, you can check out this short prequel comic which gives us more background on one of the characters.

SPOILERS FOLLOW - BUT OF COURSE THEY DO!

AGAIN - SPOILERS!

The comic concerns what happened to Dr. Mann in the years before he was found on his isolated, icy planet. He's played in the film by Matt Damon - a role which was not revealed before the film debuted. It actually turns out to be a pretty important character and you can see the seeds of his part in the film in this comic, which was written by Christopher Nolan and inked by Sean Gordon Murphy.

It's exclusively available over on Wired and we think its pretty cool.

Interstellar is out now. See it in IMAX if you can!
