Ministry of Space

Ministry of Space written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Chris Weston Which is a neat little comic book with an alt history take on the space race. At the end WW2 an enterprising air force commander takes it on himself to get the german rocket scientists so that Britain gets to space. The coolest parts of this comic are just that it is about getting to space properly and colonising the solar system instead of the nothing much we are currently doing in space. Much recommended but quite short. more of a series of vignettes highlighting the future history.
