The Theory


An archaeologist struggling to save our future, a time traveller working to fix our past.
Years in the making, The Theory: a Twisted Sci-Fi is finally ready!



Humans have achieved the seemingly impossible – faster than light travel.

Despite discovering hundreds and hundreds of planets that once contained intelligent life, we have yet to discover a single planet where that life remains. These planets have one thing in common – they were wiped out, either by accident or by design.

To track and study these dead civilisations, a group of astroarchaeologists have been created to help educate humans on how to avoid the same fate.

Seemingly working on the other end of the spectrum, an elite team of time travellers have been created in secret to help minimise human suffering. They travel through time performing ‘minimal alterations’ to the timeline to help achieve this.

Join Linda, the astroarchaeologist and Jemm-r, the time traveller, on an adventure to save our future and our past.


Primarily written by Neil Gibson, creator of TPub Comics, The Theory has been a passion project for many years. He describes The Theory as “Like Twisted Dark, but for science fiction fans”.

Neil has a real love for the comic book medium, and it’s his goal to get more people reading and creating comics.

Forrest C. Helvie (co-writer of Pandora) and David Court (co-writer of Battlesuit and Obsession) also provided valuable contributions to the writing of this work.

Illustrated by a team of rotating artists, we’re proud to say we got to work with Amrit Birdi (Quarantine), Phil Buckenham (Obsession, Battlesuit), Jake Elphick (Doesn’t it Depress You?), Cem Iroz (Everyone Deserves a Chance of Happiness, No Recidivism), Davide Puppo (Deciding Our Future, Communication) and Atula Siriwardane

    Loved this one, great story well told.

  2. Ethan Zukas

    So far I’ve read about 6 TPub comics and The Theory might be my favorite one. It’s more or less about different worlds and the catastrophic events for each. It reads kind of like a collection of short stories and covers a variety of sci-fi scenarios with recurring characters. I wouldn’t mind delving deeper into each world. In a way, it reminds me of the Netflix show Love Death and Robots – a very good thing. If you like sci-fi, maybe a little bit of mystery, and dark themes, I highly recommend The Theory.
