Review: Space Bastards #1

Space Bastards #1

Space Bastards #1 delivers a concept that’s so simple but at the same time so much fun. In this world the Intergalactic Postal Service will get your package delivered but, it’s a competition. The delivery game is a mercenary business with everyone out for themselves. They attempt to steal the packages from each other so they can get it delivered and paid. The more delivery people who touch it, the higher the price for the package and more money earned.

Writers Joe Aubrey and Eric Peterson deliver over-the-top action in Space Bastards #1. It’s REALLY over the top. The blood flies. The heads splatter. The violence is ultra.

The story focuses on David S. Proton. He’s an accountant, fired from his job, and is desperate for money. While the series could easily just drop us into the world, Aubrey and Peterson are smart to focus on Proton. He’s an everyman through whom we can relate. Having an alien or someone already in the business at the center of the story, the reader might be a bit more disconnected. We get to see Proton evolve and fall into the job eventually standing up and embracing the game.

And the game is the real draw. The comic is violent. There’s a dance about that. The package bounces from one courier to the next wracking up a higher score for the person who eventually delivers it. The violence is entertaining and over the top creating gore and destruction that’s so over the top, it’s hard to take serious. It’s meant to be silly in this way, a violent Looney Tunes where everyone is both Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.

Much of that silliness is due to Darick Robertson‘s art. It’s perfect here with such a vision. The aliens are unique, the worlds have personality. This isn’t a cut and paste job where there’s the same thing over and over. Instead, everything feels unique and original. You want to stay on the page and see what stands out. The comic has such personality. Every location, every world, every character, and every death. They all come together for a visual treat of violence. It’s over the top in every way and Robertson’s art feels like it embraces it with glee.

Space Bastards #1 is a lot of fun. That fun is squarely in its violence. It’s such a simple concept but takes such pleasure in the violence. It takes it and amps it up to 11. The comic reminds me a lot of Bisley’s Lobo where it just reveled in its action. The comic is a throwback in some ways and a comic you can just get lost in and enjoy the symphony of violence.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

The Black Panther Party: A Graphic Novel History

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

American Vampire 1976 #4 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The series has been a lot of fun so far. Though it leans a bit towards those who have previously read the series, new readers should be able to enjoy it for the great action.

Ascencia #1 (Wake Entertainment) – The drummer of System of a Down brings his talents to comics in a story about what one would do to become immortal.

The Black Panther Party: A Graphic Novel History (Ten Speed Press) – The retelling of the group and its key figures

DC Future State (DC Comics) – DC Future State has been a pretty solid event so far. There’s only been a few clunkers but overall, it’s been a pretty solid “gimmick”. This week’s releases include Future State: Dark Detective #1, Future State: Green Lantern #1, Future State: Justice League #1, Future State: Kara Zor-El, Superwoman #1, Future State: Robin Eternal #1, Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #1, Future State: Teen Titans #1.

HaHa #1 (Image Comics) – The new miniseries features a rotating group of artists joining W. Maxwell Prince to explore the world of clowns.

Home Sick Pilots #2 (Image Comics) – The debut issue was a creepy start of a haunted house story. We’re still not 100% sure of what’s going on but we really want to find out.

League of Super Feminists (Drawn & Quarterly) – A graphic novel guide to some of the central tenets of feminism.

Manns World #1 (AWA Studios) – A tale of survival when four individuals on a resort anger the planet’s working class. Could be very interesting.

Serial #1 (Abstract Studios) – A young girl has been stuck being 10 for 50 years due to the demon inside. Now the demon is free and killing and Zoe must stop it.

Soulstream #1 (Scout Comics) – Marie and Markus discover an alternate dimension known as the Mirror World where their entire city has been destroyed and replaced by a volcanic wasteland.

Space Bastards #1 (Humanoids) – An unemployed accountant joins the Intergalactic Postal Service. Delivery is mercenary where payment goes to whoever delivers the package.

In Shops: Jan 13, 2021
SRP: $5.99

Acclaimed artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, HAPPY!) joins writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey as they unleash the galaxy’s most vicious and depraved…parcel couriers?
Poor David S. Proton. A meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money, he joins the Intergalactic Postal Service, paired with Manny Corns, a.k.a. “The Manicorn,” a sardonic brute who thrives on the competition provided by the IPS. But delivery is mercenary for these intergalactic dispatchers-payment goes solely to whoever fulfills the delivery, making every run a comically violent free-for-all between the most ruthless degenerates in the cosmos. Stand back, Lobo! Make way, Han Solo — here come the Space Bastards!

Humanoids Debuts A Black Light Variant Cover By Dan Panosian and a Virgin Variant Cover by Darick Robertson for Space Bastards #1

When Humanoids debuts Space Bastards by The Boys artist and co-creator Darick Robertson and writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey this January 13th, there will be a one-in-ten collectible, black light variant cover by acclaimed artist Dan Panosian and a 50/50 virgin variant cover by Darick Robertson. In Space Bastards, David S. Proton is a meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money. He 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.

Space Bastards kicks off in January with the seven-part monthly “Tooth and Mail” arc by series co-creators Robertson, 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.
