EXCLUSIVE Humanoids solicit reveal: Space Bastards #3 and #4

The Intergalactic, kickass series debuts this January from Darick Robertson, Eric Peterson, and Joe Aubrey.

Ahead of its January launch, AIPT has an exclusive first look at Space Bastards cover art and solicitations for issue #3 and #4. Announced back in October, the series is co-created by Darick Robertson with writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey.

So what is Space Bastards about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

In SPACE BASTARDS, David S. Proton is a meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money. He joins the Intergalactic Postal Service only to be paired with Manny Corns (a.k.a. “The Manicorn”), a sardonic brute who thrives on the competition provided by the company. And things only get worse from there.

Space Bastards is a longtime brainchild of Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey, their labor of love that I brought my own brand of crazy to with my character designs and storytelling. It’s a fun world, where things like science don’t get in the way of the fiction. It’s a wild ride.” said artist Darick Robertson in a press release sent earlier this year.

Below you’ll find solicitation text and cover art for the issues, with Space Bastards #3 and #4 never before seen. Enjoy!

Space Bastards #1:

Acclaimed artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, HAPPY!) joins writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey as they unleash the galaxy’s most vicious and depraved…parcel couriers?

Poor David S. Proton. A meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money, he joins the Intergalactic Postal Service, paired with Manny Corns, a.k.a. “The Manicorn,” a sardonic brute who thrives on the competition provided by the IPS. But delivery is mercenary for these intergalactic dispatchers-payment goes solely to whoever fulfills the delivery, making every run a comically violent free-for-all between the most ruthless degenerates in the cosmos. Stand back, Lobo! Make way, Han Solo — here come the Space Bastards!
