by Olly MacNamee
Vault Comics has announced its first ever Kickstarter campaign collecting the entire Wasted Space saga, all 25 issues, running at 672 pages. Wasted Space: The Cosmic Collection, written by Michael Moreci, drawn by Hayden Sherman, coloured by Jason Wordie, and lettered by Jim Campbell. launches on 13th September, but fans can sign up early here.
“From the very start, Wasted Space has been a labor of love for everyone involved, and being able to collect the entire story in one gorgeous hardcover is so rewarding. I’m thrilled we’re offering it directly to readers via Kickstarter so they can have it, read it, and put this enormous, beautiful book on their shelves. If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that Billy, Dust, and Molly would agree: you go big, or you go home. It doesn’t get much bigger than this massive tome!” – Michael Moreci
“Readers were always the thing pushing Wasted Space further, added Sherman. “Without our readers the book wouldn’t have been able to turn from a five issue mini series into the 25 issue galaxy/dimension-spanning saga it became. It’s incredible to me then that through Kickstarter we can come back around and directly bring those same readers a fully collected beautiful mega-book containing the entirety of Billy, Dust, Molly and Squeee’s mad adventures. It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of.” – Hayden Sherman
Full synopsis below:
“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 (Barbaric, Revealer) and Hayden Sherman (Dark Spaces: Wildfire) have thrown Preacher in a blender with Philip K. Dick. Take a sip and get wasted.”
