Here’s one more friendly reminder to pre-order Ken Garing’s Planetoid #1 from Image Comics.
Planetfall Final order cut-off is monday, so stop by your shop or pick up the phone today and let them know you want in on this deep space odyssey. You first heard about the book here on iFanboy, and we’re eager to help lead the charge in making this one of the most successful indy titles of 2012.
If you’re new to the story, Planetoid is an account of grizzled Silas, a space pirate marooned on an inhospitable chunk of rock in deepest space. Before his first day is up, he’ll tussle with a rugged industrial wasteland, some nasty lizards and a giant mechanical leviathan. Then there’s the sentient populace to contend with.
As a special treat, writer and artist Ken Garing has dispatched these (unfinished) preview pages from Planetoid #3. At this point in the story, Silas discovers a downed spacecraft and becomes the reluctant leader of a burgeoning human settlement nestled amongst the wreckage. What begins as one rugged space pirate’s tale of survival will ultimately expand to a broader examination of refugees in chaos. We’re pretty sure there’ll be more scary robots too.
Also, meet the new blue cover boy.
