“LOST IN THE WILDS OF
HEAVEN”
Being a space-trucker
sounds like a cool job, but the reality is can be boring as hell. So when
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 –
that is until their “big rig” gets bitten in half by a gigantic
Space Leviathan! Now separated from his young son – with a breached suit
that’s venting oxygen at an alarming rate – Gil must defy the odds
and stay alive long enough to rescue Kadyn.

Meanwhile, Kadyn seems to be
getting all the help he needs from a talking Space Mon-key riding a Space
Dolphin…or maybe it’s the strange powers he’s suddenly
manifest-ing?!

From the writing duo
of JASON AARON (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Thor) and DENNIS HOPELESS (Cloak &
Dagger, Vader: Dark Visions), with dazzling art by STEPHEN GREEN (Hellboy &
the BPRD) and cosmic colors by Rico Renzi (SpiderGwen) comes a brand-new science
fiction series, with all the scope and heart of the THE NEVEREND-ING STORY
crossed with imaginative weirdness of Miyazaki – an intense,
galaxy-spanning adventure that’s suitable for fans of all
ages!

Publisher Review

LIBRARY JOURNAL -- All-ages adventure and a savage battle for survival mix as a father and son, separated after a monster devours their spaceship, search the galaxy for each other. In the aftermath of the attack, Gil Starx is stranded, wounded, dangerously low on oxygen, and desperate to find his son, Kadyn, before the homing beacon in his helmet runs out of power. For Kadyn, being lost in space is a thrill, especially after exposure to an ancient artifact grants him amazing powers, including the ability to communicate with a space monkey and a space dolphin who quickly become his companions. When a mysterious woman named Dalla convinces Kadyn to accompany her to her home planet, his animal friends are suspicious-and rightly so, as it's soon revealed that Dalla's interest in Kadyn is self-serving and emphatically sinister. Collecting single Issues 1-5. VERDICT If Sam Peckinpah had directed a Pixar film, it would probably a lot like what coauthors Aaron (War of the Realms) and Hallum (Star Wars: Vader)
