Publisher Comments:

BRIAN AZZARELLO and EDUARDO RISSO - the Eisner Award-winning creators of 100 BULLETS - return to Vertigo with their new interstellar mystery SPACEMAN.

SPACEMAN tells the story of Orson - a hulking, lonely loser who spends his days collecting scrap metal and dreaming of the startrekking life he was genetically engineered for. When Orson finds himself at the center of a celebrity child kidnapping case, he sees a chance to raise himself out of his sad life and become a hero, but a hero's life may not be the life he thought it would be.

Orson's adventures throw him into harsher realities than those he was designed for, where bloodthirsty pirates are hunting the same "treasure," though only Orson wants to find the "treasure" alive. Can Orson overcome his crippling personal failures, drugs and pirates to do the right thing and find meaning in his life?

He is the author of JONNY DOUBLE, BATMAN: BROKEN CITY and the Harvey and Eisner Award-winning 100 BULLETS, all created in collaboration with artist Eduardo Risso. The New York Times best-selling author’s other work for DC includes the titles HELLBLAZER and LOVELESS (both with Marcelo Frusin), SUPERMAN: FOR TOMORROW (with Jim Lee), JOKER and LUTHOR (both with Lee Bermejo), SGT. ROCK: BETWEEN HELL AND A HARD PLACE (with Joe Kubert), FILTHY RICH (with Victor Santos), and most recently the all-new ongoing series WONDER WOMAN (with Cliff Chiang).
