I'm curious if there is anything that wasn't a franchise run (Star Wars, Star Trek, Star Firefly, Star Galactica, ect.) that was really solid. I loved Blame! for example, but am looking for a more western format. I really dug Descender and what they are doing with that. So yeah. New IP harder Sci-Fi/Cyber. Sock it to meeee.

The Iron Empires by Christopher Moeller. Fully painted artwork that's simply gorgeous. It is in three parts: Shadow Empires: Faith Conquers, first published as a limited series by Dark Horse in 1994, Sheva's War, published by Helix in 1998, and Iron Empires: Void, published by Forged Lord Comics in 2013.

Planetes by Makoto Yukimura published by Tokyo Pop. It starts off about the crew of spacecraft whose job it is to clear up space debris. And it grows into a story about what happens to to society when humans live in space and what they have to give up to be there. Very light on the manga tropes.
