Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso - the Eisner Award-winning creators of 100 BULLETS - return to Vertigo with their new interstellar mystery SPACEMAN, collected here in DC's Deluxe format. SPACEMAN tells the story of Orson, a hulking, lonely loser who spends his days collecting scrap metal and dreaming of the star-trekking life he was genetically engineered for. When Orson finds himself at the center of a celebrity child kidnapping case, he sees a chance to raise himself out of his sad life and become a hero, but a hero's life may not be the life he thought it would be. This new hardcover collects the entire nine issue miniseries, plus the short story from STRANGE ADVENTURES #1.
BRED FOR SPACE.
MAROONED ON EARTH.
Born in a top-secret NASA bioengineering program, Orson and his brothers were forged to be a new class of men: Harder. Stronger. Able to withstand the unimaginable stresses of prolonged space travel.
But what happens to the subject when the experiment is over?
Following the ignominios collapse of the space program, Orson now scrapes out a living salvaging scrap metal from the rising waters that have drowned the world's coastal cities. Tainted by scandal and shunned as a freak, he just wants to be left alone.
Unfortunately, his luck hasn't changed for the better. When he stumbles of a high-profile celebrity kidnapping, he quickly finds himself embroiled ina an escalating battle of sefl-serving factions, all vying for a piece of one little girl --- a child whose fame is more dangerous than the coldest interstellar vacuum.
SPACEMAN reunites writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso, the Eisner Award-winning team behind 100 BULLETS, for a bold new vision of a brutal future. This deluxe hardcover edition collects the entire SPACEMAN saga and includes a special sketchbook section from Risso.
