MIYAZAKI-ESQUE SPACE ADVENTURE SEA OF STARS, VOL. 1 SET TO HIT STORES FROM IMAGE COMICS THIS JANUARY 2020
“There is a genuine earnestness on each page. Aaron and Hallum treat their leads with respect and build a believable father-son relationship. The dialogue is smart and doesn't rely on massive exposition dumps...The story is lean without feeling hollow.”
—Comic Book Resources
“Delivers some jaw-dropping action and twists before the final page.” —ComicBook.com
PORTLAND, Ore. 10/23/2019 — The first story arc of the epic, critically acclaimed science-fiction adventure Sea of Stars—by writing duo Jason Aaron (Southern Bastards, Thor) and Dennis Hallum (Cloak & Dagger, Vader: Dark Visions), artist Stephen Green (Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.), with colors by Rico Renzi (Spider-Gwen), 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 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.
Sea of Stars, Vol. 1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
