Humanoids has announced that Darick Robertson, Eric Peterson, and Joe Aubrey are teaming for Space Bastards, a different take on postal delivery in the future.
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.
“Humanoids publishes mind blowing sci-fi epics like The Incal, Metabarons and Barbarella,” said Humanoids Publisher Mark Waid in a press release. “Those works are like enjoying a fine wine at dinner. Space Bastards is like drinking moonshine on a week-long bender you’ll never forget, because one day you woke up with some weird tattoos, a scar from a fight you don’t even remember, and a new best friend who smells weird.”
In addition to the regular covers, Humanoids has tapped Dan Panoisan for a one-in-ten black light variant cover.
Space Bastards is 44-pages of story and will arrive in comic book stores of January 13, 2020.
