What is it?
The psychedelic space opera of disgraced Captain Peligro seeking redemption and a body count worthy of his namesake, the Skullship Sante Muerte.
As writer Fabian Rangel Jr. put it “Get a bowl; add KIRBY, STERANKO, B-MOVIES, and METAL and mix until your mind is blown. We can do ANYTHING in comics. And we plan to.”
Why it’s awesome:
Alexis Ziritt (who’s been doing those amazing LOKI: RAGNAROK AND ROLL covers) is making tripped-out, psycho-manic art like no one else these days, and we think SPACE RIDERS is the perfect book for him to hit the next level. Fabian Rangel Jr. is a very cool new writer we’ve been watching for a while, his DOC UNKNOWN digital comic is a real gem and his backup in the LIBERATOR trade went viral on Tumblr. Both of these guys are about to break huge and SPACE RIDERS is poised to be the book that does it for them.
