As announced back in April, Albatross Funnybooks, run by artist and writer Eric Powell, is going to be publishing a new book in their slate that already includes Hillbilly, Namwolf, and more.
Their new title, Galaktikon, will be arriving on August 2nd, according to Previews and their website, and will be a six issue series.
Written by Eric Powell and Brendon Small, with Steve Mannion and Jason Moore on art, as well as Powell on covers, Galaktikon is a “high stakes intergalactic extreme rock comic”. Brendon Small is the guy who brought us Dethlok and Metalocalypse and the comic will be based on his album by the same name. In the album and the comic, we follow an intergalactic hero, Triton, who faces the “ultimate outer space struggle” in, well, getting over his divorce.
