The Boys has proven to be a very popular series based on comic books. If you enjoy that, you may want to consider checking out Humanoids’ Space Bastards later this month from The Boys co-creator Darick Robertson and writers Joe Aubrey and Eric Peterson. The series was funded successfully on Kickstarter several months ago, and the first issue will be a mega-sized 44 pages.
In SPACE BASTARDS, violence is everywhere. Corporations are exploiting the weak and disenfranchised. And while America has taken to the cosmos, scientific advancements and technology have outpaced civilization as we know it. Even getting mail between planets is damn near impossible. Enter the Intergalactic Postal Service, a deadly organization with a brutal, mercenary business model. Whoever delivers the package gets the cash. And every delivery can be made by any means necessary.
Eric and Joe have poured their heart and souls into this project and have devoted years to seeing it come to fruition. Designing this world and characters with them was unbridled fun. It’s a raucous and bizarre world that puts the fiction in Sci-Fi.
Space Bastards #1 will be available starting January 13. Fans will have the opportunity to grab a one-in-ten collectible black light variant cover by Dan Panosian or a 50/50 virgin variant cover by Robertson in addition to the main cover.
