From the Eisner award-winning team that brought you the acclaimed crime epic 100 Bullets comes SPACEMAN, a deluxe edition hardcover (collecting issues 1-9 of the mini-series and the short story that started it all, originally published in Strange Adventures #1,) that is less science fiction and more science hell.
Writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso present a not-so-distant future, where the environment and economy have collapsed and Orson, a hulking, lonely loser who was genetically engineered to withstand the harsh journey to Mars, is lost in a world he wasn't meant to live in.
With the space program now defunct, Orson spends his days collecting scrap metal and dreaming of the life he was promised, finding himself trapped in a seriously harsher reality. That is, until he finds himself at the center of a celebrity child kidnapping case. Seeing his chance to be a hero, Orson takes matters into his own hands...
Azzarello got the idea for the story while sitting in a bar watching the news with a friend and bio-engineering professor in Chicago. A master of dialect, Azzarello used text messaging as inspiration for the way Orson speaks!
Welcome to science hell!
