5. Judge Dredd Complete Case Files Volume One
After dealing with the authoritarian Brotherhood of Steel and the warped view of a future society presented in Fallout 4 it might be time to step into the world of 2,000AD.

There’s lots of brilliant futuristic ideas and some truly awe-inspiring science fiction concepts. With so many great stories out there, the best place to start is at the beginning with the Complete Case Files.
4. Spider-Man Noir
With all the nineteen twenties inspired detective missions from Valentine Detective Agency it might be worth considering this great Marvel story with a film noir twist.

The first story arc follows Spider-Man Noir dealing with the corrupt mob boss ‘The Goblin’ as the two fight through smoky streets and shadowy alleys.
3. The Complete Adventures Of The Rocketeer

The stories are pulp sci-fi at its best, with gadgets, deception and action at every turn! The designs all look like they belong in the Fallout 4 wasteland and by the end of reading it you’ll wish they were.
2. Wolverine: Old Man Logan
