Michael Moreci and Hayden Sherman
For Billy Bane, Molly, Dust, and the outcasts they meet along the way, the path to galactic (and personal) peace isn’t getting any easier. They have their mission, delivered by the strange, towering deity known as Legion: They must kill the Creator, which is no easy feat. But it might be the only way to set the galaxy free, or it might just mean the end of all things. Packed with high-stakes action, existential angst, and biting humor, WASTED SPACE has been hailed as one of the best comics of 2018 by countless publications. It’s a unique, fresh take on the classic pulp space adventure-“like Star Wars by way of 2018” (Batman’s Bookcase); “nihilistic and twisted” (Nerdist). APR192067
