You probably know this already, but Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s DC Comics/Vertigo series 100 Bullets is one of our all-time favorites here at Cosmic Comix. So we were double-plus happy to see that creative team back together again for a new nine-issue series (also under the Vertigo banner) called Spaceman! In a way, it sounds kind of Warren Ellis-y… but possibly with more angst? Anyway, it sounds awesome and the first issue is only $1.00! Well worth a try.

The Eisner Award-winning creators of 100 Bullets return to Vertigo with a new nine-issue miniseries, kicking off with a debut issue priced at just $1.00!
Set in a post-apocalyptic near future, Spaceman tells the story of Orson – a hulking, lonely loser who spends his days collecting scrap metal and dreaming of the startrekking life he was promised. 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… but will his actions only cause more heartbreak?
DC Comics’ Spaceman #1 comes out on Wednesday!
