New Spaceman #2 comic book stars human named Orson who is genetically modified to live on Mars
Set in a post-apocalyptic near future, the new nine-issue Spaceman comic book series features a human named Orson, who has been genetically modified by NASA to live on Mars. The problem is, NASA gets shutdown for playing God, and the “hulking, lonely loser
who spends his days collecting scrap metal and dreaming of the startrekking life he was promised.” Eventually, Orson gets caught up in a riveting celebrity child kidnapping case!
Written by Brian Azzarello, with interior artwork by Eduardo Risso, and cover art by Dave Johnson, Spaceman #2 (November 2011) was published by Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics.
