    Short summary describing this issue.

    1: The Ship last edited by cbishop on 05/26/18 02:45PM View full history

    Master storyteller GARTH ENNIS and Fashion Beast artist FACUNDO PERCIO team up to deliver a haunting new epic of science fiction horror. The crew of the Caliban travels hyperspace on nothing more than a routine trip for the giant vessel. Just human beings that have been inside a bit too long, confident of no other life in the Galaxy, and all the vastness of space to remind them how far they are from home. But when an impossible accident suddenly causes the Caliban to slam into an abandoned alien ship, a nightmare in space begins to unfold. Ennis delivers his unique brand of flawed characters, spot-on dialog, and trademark flare for the unexpected in a new series in the vein of Alien. This is the beginning of the end for the crew of the Caliban.

    Available with Regular, Wraparound, Terror, and Design Sketch Incentive covers by Facundo Percio and a ultra-limited Dark Matter edition of just 1500 copies.

    Absolutely stunning 0

    You need to go pick this book up right now. Anyone who's ever read Garth Ennis can tell you that he has a knack for writing perhaps the most authentic characters in all of comicdom and this is no exception. The crew of the deep space mining vessel "Caliban" only appear for about twenty pages but they feel like real people, which is good because when the bodies start to pile up it's gonna hurt.I wasn't familiar with Percio's art before this but I have to say he knocks it out of the park in this ...

    Expecting more horror 0

    When I started to read this I was hoping for some horror/terror story. Some thing like Event Horizon where the ship came from hell. I guess we have to hang out for another issue or two to see where we going with this. Maybe just another 4 pages would have helped....
