WASTED SPACE Volumes One and Two are on store shelves now, and the third story arc begins in November 2019.
And here's what the comic is about:
WASTED SPACE follows Billy Bane, 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.
In a press release, here's what director Richard Rohan had to say:
WASTED SPACE is a bouncy, twisting ride of a story, blasting through space opera tropes and conventions with a splash of social satire. Having the opportunity to render that story in GraphicAudio was almost as much fun as the story itself!
It's been a joy working with GraphicAudio on the WASTED SPACE adaptation–they've been so faithful to the material while adding in new and fun story angles. I've loved what I've heard, and I'm so confident other people will, too. This cinematic space opera brought to life in the best way.
"GraphicAudio has brought WASTED SPACE to life in a whole new way here that's just crazy cool. It's faithful and fun and has me dying to find out what each issue sounds like.
Look for the wasted space audio drama on September 30th, and pre-order here. There's also a trailer you can watch below:
