Mark Millar, Image, and Netflix announce Space Bandits featuring Limited Edition Covers

Netflix and Mark Millar have announced their latest project created in-house, Space Bandits—a female led sci-fi story, described by Millar as a female Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid set in space with a massive and exciting cast of characters.

Superstar Artist Matteo Scalera will illustrate the comic-book translation of this original Netflix property, published by Image Comics.

In Space Bandits, Thena Khole and Cody Blue are among the universe’s most wanted felons. Each the leader of their own criminal operations, they run heists across the galaxies—hopping from ship to ship to fleece everyone inside. But when both women are betrayed by their treacherous crews, the bandits only have one thing on their minds: REVENGE.

As a special bonus, and available to order at the same time, is a limited edition series of Space Bandits Legends Covers, featuring Miller’s all-time favorite comic-book artists—artists Miller was obsessed with in high school, and whom he has wanted to work with for years. 

The first of these five very limited edition covers will be illustrated by comic-book legend Howard Chaykin, and will retail for the same price as a comic-book cost when Mark was in high school… just 75 cents. All other covers will retail at the regular $3.99 price.

Space Bandits #1 will be available in stores on Wednesday, July 3. The final order cutoff deadline is June 10.

The Umbrella Academy is Renewed for a Second Season

The Umbrella Academy

Netflix has ordered a 10-episode second season of The Umbrella Academy. The television series is based on the comic series written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá and published by Dark Horse Comics.

Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min will reprise their roles with production beginning this summer.

The series is about forty-three infants who are born to random, unconnected women on the same day in 1989. The women didn’t show signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who trains the kids to save the world. The family comes apart when they come together as adults to solve the death of their “father.”

Steve Blackman will return as the showrunner and executive producer.
