Inspired by classic pulp novels, old-time radio broadcasts and Saturday morning cartoons, the first volume of David Gallaher and Steve Ellis comic The Only Living Boy will be available for the first time in stores from March 8th.
The series presents the adventures of Erik Farrell, a runaway boy who awakens on a strange planet to discover he just might be the last human alive. Erik must befriend an insect princess and a mermaid warrior in order to defeat an evil dragon and a slew of dangerous creatures. Eight years in the making, The Only Living Boy: Prisoner Of The Patchwork Planet will be published by Papercutz in March, followed by Volume 2 in July, Volume 3 in October, with more volumes to follow in 2017.
And for those at ComicsPRO in Portland, here is the exclusive cover at the show…
