Darick Roberston, Eric Peterson, and Joe Aubrey Unleash Space Bastards with Humanoids in January
Humanoids is launching a kickass, intergalactic story like none other: Space Bastards. The Boys artist Darick Roberston and writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey team up to unleash the galaxy’s most vicious and depraved…postal couriers?
David S. Proton is a meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money. David joins the Intergalactic Postal Service only to be paired with Manny Corns (a.k.a. “The Manicorn”), a sardonic brute who thrives on the competition provided by the company. And things only get worse from there. In Space Bastards, violence is everywhere. Corporations are exploiting the weak and disenfranchised. And while America has taken to the cosmos, scientific advancements and technology have outpaced civilization as we know it. Even getting mail between planets is damn near impossible. Enter the Intergalactic Postal Service, a deadly organization with a brutal, mercenary business model. Whoever delivers the package gets the cash. And every delivery can be made by any means necessary.
The mega-sized, 44-page first issue debut of Space Bastards kicks off on January 13 with the seven-part monthly “Tooth and Mail” arc by series co-creators Roberston, Peterson, and Aubrey.
Later in the year, writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey will be joined by all-star artists Simon Bisley and Clint Langley for a series of high-octane Space Bastards specials, a single one-shot followed by two annuals.
