Description

BRIAN AZZARELLO and EDUARDO RISSO - the Eisner Award-winning creators of 100 BULLETS - return to Vertigo with their new interstellar mystery SPACEMAN.

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 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.

Orson's adventures throw him into harsher realities than those he was designed for, where bloodthirsty pirates are hunting the same "treasure," though only Orson wants to find the "treasure" alive. Can Orson overcome his crippling personal failures, drugs and pirates to do the right thing and find meaning in his life?
