Canopus from Scout Comics hasn’t even debuted yet, but it already has my sci-fi senses tingling. I got a sneak peek at the first issue, due out on February 12th, 2020 and was hooked. That’s why I jumped at the chance to share an exclusive preview of Canopus #2, due out in March 2020. Check out an early look at the haunting outer space story from writer / artist Dave Chisholm below.
After waking up marooned on a lifeless planet with no memories beyond a hazy sense of extinction-level urgency to return to Earth, Helen and her robot companion Arther reluctantly find themselves deep beneath the surface of the mysterious planet, exploring a vast cave system. An impossible encounter with a key figure from Helen’s murky past brings the very nature of reality into question, opening a rift between Helen and Arther. As Helen’s memories trickle back, their path towards escape grows more and more perilous. Canopus tracks the demons of both inner and outer space in an intricately illustrated psychological sci-fi adventure!
Canopus #2 is set for release on March 11th, 2020.
