Based on Robert Silverberg's bestselling Sci-Fi novel about the effects of colonialism and the quest for transcendence.
Ex-lieutenant Eddie Gundersen returns to Belzagor, where he had left behind his youthful illusions, the love of his life and his shameful past as a colonizer. He finds the planet returned to its two intelligent species: the Nildoror and the Sulidoror. Taking the lead on a scientific expedition to the borders of the indigenous lands, Gundersen must face his own demons and settle the score with a planet which still has hidden secrets.

With a fantastic artist attached DOWNWARD TO THE EARTH makes for a very readable science fiction adventure
Laura Zuccheri brings art with a distinctly European magazine style, though it has the faintest air of vintage Weekly Shonen Jump as well. Her panels focus on characters, with thin, realistic linework, superb expressions, and clear bodies that stand out against fully realized fantastic backgrounds.
A total trip.
