Sea of Stars’ First Volume Gets Collected in January

The first story arc of the epic, critically acclaimed science-fiction adventure Sea of Stars—by writing duo Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum, artist Stephen Green, with colors by Rico Renzi, and with letters and design by Jared Fletcher—will be collected into trade paperback and available from Image Comics this January. Sea of Stars, Vol. 1: Lost in the Wild Heavens will collect issues #1-5 of the intense, galaxy-spanning comic book series that features all the scope and heart of The Neverending Story crossed with imaginative weirdness of a Miyazaki animation.

Being a space trucker may sound like a cool job, but in reality it can be boring as hell. In Sea of Stars, Vol. 1 a recently widowed Gil gets a long-haul gig across the universe, he figures it’s safe enough to bring his young son Kadyn along for the ride. But when their “big rig” gets bitten in half by a gigantic Space Leviathan, Gil is separated from his young son—with a breached suit that’s venting oxygen at an alarming rate. He’ll have to defy the odds and stay alive long enough to rescue Kadyn. But Kadyn seems to be getting all the help he needs from a talking Space Monkey riding a Space Dolphin… or maybe it’s the strange powers he’s suddenly manifesting.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Aero #1

Wednesdays 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 Wednesday.

Aero #1 (Marvel) – The character gets her own series with an English translation of her origin and an all-new tale. Great to see this creation become more accessible.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #3 (DC Comics/IDW Publishing) – The series has been off the wall fun mashing up so much between DC and TMNT. Just sit back and enjoy the fun.

Charlie’s Angels vs. Bionic Woman #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – How has it taken this long for this to happen?

DCeased #3 (DC Comics) – DC doing a zombie story? We had low expectations honestly since the concept has been done so many times before but this series has pleasantly surprised us so far.

Lois Lane #1 (DC Comics) – Lois gets her own series! In an age where journalists are “the enemy,” we’re expecting a lot from this series.

Ignited #2 (Humanoids/H1) – The first issue is fantastic. It’s a world where students seem to be getting powers set in the aftermath of a school shooting. An interesting concept that we want to learn more about.

No One Left to Fight #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – An anime/manga inspired series from Aubrey Sitterson and Fico Ossio about what happens when the hero grows older and there’s just no one left to fight.

Postal: Deliverance #1 (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – The new story arc finds Mark struggling with being the Mayor of Eden. A very underrated series about a town filled with criminals that’s worth checking out, especially with this new arc/starting point.

Sea of Stars #1 (Image Comics) – Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum’s new series about space truckers. The fact Aaron is on board and he can do the amazing long game writing has us excited about this creator-owned series.

Space Bandits #1 (Image Comics/Millarworld) – The new series by Mark Millar with art by Matteo Scalera. It sounds like the heist/betrayal/revenge story but with Millar’s backing by Netflix, this one is a series to watch.

Spencer and Locke 2 #4 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The second volume wraps up with a bang. If you haven’t been reading this twisted tale, you’ve been missing out. It’s all revealed here and has us hoping for more.

Star Wars: Target Vader #1 (Marvel) – Bounty hunters go after Vader and the concept sounds too awesome to not read.

Test #1 (Vault Comics) – From Christopher Sebela and Jen Hickman, this series is a weird story about the need for liberation and technology.

Thumbs #2 (Image Comics) – The story about technology, revolution, and the government is right up our way and we’re enjoying the hell out of it.

The Walking Dead #193 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – Sounds like this’ll be a big issue! What the hell is going on? We’ll find out Wednesday.
