TRAVELING TO MARS, Issue 1 · MSRP: $3.99 ·
Available November 9th
A riveting story of planetary exploration and of finding meaning in your final days. TRAVELING TO MARS tells the story of former pet store manager Roy Livingston, the first human to ever set foot on Mars. Roy was chosen for the unlikely mission for one simple reason: he is terminally ill and has no expectation of returning. Roy is joined on his mission by Leopold and Albert, two Mars rovers equipped with artificial intelligence, who look upon the dying pet store manager as a sort of god. Against the backdrop of not only his waning days but those of human civilization as well, Roy has ample time to think about where things went wrong for both and what it means to be a dying god. From Eisner award-winner Mark Russell and hot new talent Roberto Meli, who team up to deliver a compelling and unlikely new sci-fi adventure about an astronaut anti-hero that leads humanity's first expedition to the Red Planet.
