Missoula, MT (4/24/2018): Vault Comics unveiled two brand new covers for the second printing of Wasted Space #1. The first cover is illustrated by Vault Comics’ Art Director, Nathan Gooden (Zojaqan, Powerless, The Gifted), and the second by heavyweight artist Darick Robertson (Happy!, Transmetropolitan). Both covers are designed by Tim Daniel.
Nathan Gooden’s cover references Shuster and Eisenberg’s classic Action Comics No. 1 cover, which was released 80 years to the day before Wasted Space #1. Darick Robertson’s cover is a loving parody of George Pérez’s unforgettable Crisis on Infinite Earths cover. The back covers of both Wasted Space #1 2nd prints will feature a historical note about the covers referenced.
The Robertson cover is a 1:2 variant tied with the Gooden cover. Every 2 copies ordered of the Gooden cover will enable retailers to order one copy of the Robertson cover. The #1 second print covers both hit shelves the same day as the second issue of Wasted Space, May 30th, 2018. Retailers can look at Previews Plus for more information.
Wasted Space is a sci-fi comic series published by Vault Comics that Nerdist called “Easily the best new series to hit comic shops so far this year.” The series is written by Michael Moreci (Roche Limit, Black Star Renegades, Nightwing), illustrated by Hayden Sherman (The Few, John Carter: The End), colored by Jason Wordie, and lettered by Jim Campbell. The synopsis of the first issue of Wasted Space #1 can be found below.
“Billy Bane is a prophet who got it all wrong, and the galaxy has been burning ever since. All he wants is to waste away in the darkest corner of space with his best pal Dust, a supercharged Fuq bot. But when a new prophet comes calling, Billy is summoned to save the galaxy he’s at least partially responsible for destroying. Too bad he couldn’t care less. Michael Moreci (Roche Limit, Black Star Renegades) and Hayden Sherman (The Few, Cold War, John Carter: The End) have thrown Philip K. Dick in a blender with Preacher. Take a sip and get wasted.”
