"Ardent fans of complicated weird-west comics, like East of West, or interesting alien worlds, like Black Science, will want to give this one a whirl." -Booklist "Drifter is the kind of deep worldbuilding sf mixed with elements of pulp Westerns and esoteric philosophical musings that is sure to hit the sweet spot for readers looking for a cerebral dose of action." - Library Journal In its frantic rush to survive itself, humanity has spread across the universe, colonizing and strip-mining countless planets. Abram Pollux barely survives a crash landing on Ouro, a lawless backwater world where life is cheap. After miraculously surviving not only the crash, but also a one-sided gunfight, Pollux finds himself in a ramshackle town, filled with other survivors shipwrecked on this strange, barren world. There he meets Marshal Lee Carter, an earnest woman giving her all to maintain order, a grizzled Preacher, convinced that Pollux' coming is a sign from God, and Emmerich Bell, the man who shot him down not moments after he dragged his body from the wreckage of his ship.What starts, as a struggle for survival quickly becomes a journey to the very edges of what it means to be human, as Pollux searches for answers among the ruins of this forgotten world. And if he can't have answers, he'll at least have his revenge. From the creators of Viking, writer Ivan Brandon (Wolverine, Men of War) and artist Nic Klein (Captain America, Thor) reunite to bring you a chilling sci-fi tale from the strangest planet in the universe.
