The new sci-fi title, Wasted Space from Vault Comics debuted last week and has already sold out at the distribution level. If you missed the first issue, the publisher has you covered as a second printing is on the way with two pretty sweet variant covers.
The first cover is a timely homage to Action Comics #1 from Vault Comics’ Art Director, Nathan Gooden and the second, from artist Darick Robertson, pays tribute to Crisis on Infinite Earths #7. Both are designed by Tim Daniel. Fun fact: Action Comics #1 was released 80 years to the day before Wasted Space #1.
The Robertson cover is a 1:2 variant with the Gooden cover, meaning for every two copies ordered of the Gooden cover, retailers will be able to order one copy of the Robertson cover. Both versions will hit shelves on the same day as Wasted Space #2, May 30th, 2018.
Wasted Space is written by Michael Moreci, illustrated by Hayden Sherman, colored by Jason Wordie, and lettered by Jim Campbell. Here’s the synopsis of the first issue from Vault Comics:
Billy Bane is a prophet who got it all wrong, and the galaxy has been burning ever since. All he wants is to waste away in the darkest corner of space with his best pal Dust, a supercharged Fuq bot. But when a new prophet comes calling, Billy is summoned to save the galaxy he’s at least partially responsible for destroying. Too bad he couldn’t care less. Michael Moreci (Roche Limit, Black Star Renegades) and Hayden Sherman (The Few, Cold War, John Carter: The End) have thrown Philip K. Dick in a blender with Preacher. Take a sip and get wasted.
