Automatic Preview: Spectrum #0

Firefly co-stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion recently turned their post-Firefly experiences into a hilarious web series called Con Man, which let us relive the fun in a semi-fictionalized story about actors from Spectrum, a cult-favorite show that was gone too soon. Tudyk and a gang of knockout comics talent have gone one level deeper, with a comic book series about Spectrum itself, from bestselling novelist Frank Beddor’s upstart Automatic Publishing.

Spectrum (the comic book) captures everything there was to love about Tudyk’s and Fillion’s previous work in a brand-new story: a tight-knit crew of fascinating characters in a spacecraft that’s both a vehicle and a home, a dashing shoot-from-the-hip captain, a wisecracking clutch pilot, a powerful female who holds the key to various salvations and destructions, and a crisp page-turning plot that starts exactly where things get interesting. As one would expect from the talent behind this, Spectrum makes you care deeply about these characters within a few panels and hints at a massive unexplored new world to unfold in issues to come.

On May 7, as part of the 15th Free Comic Book Day extravaganza, Spectrum debuts with a free #0 issue. It’s not a prologue or a sampler or a back-issue reprint, but the real first issue of a monthly mini-series. Brought to life by writers Tudyk and PJ Haarsma (Con Man, Rings of Orbis), veteran editor Shannon Eric Denton, and artist Sarah Stone (Transformers: Windblade), Spectrum #0 lets you in on the ground floor of a new favorite franchise, and it doesn’t cost a dime.
