Spaceman is still a story that I haven't feel like I've quite cracked yet, so all of my postulating on its themes is quite tentative.

I will freely admit that Spaceman does not entirely make sense to me. I still cannot divine the precise relationship between Orson's Martian goldsmuggling fantasy and the bulk of the action. I'm still parsing some of the more obscure dialogue. But that doesn't matter to me. Spaceman is a book that greatly rewards re-reading, with a density of thought and metaphor absent from many other comic books.Spaceman earns a lofty four and a half out of five stars. Check it out.

The parallels between the reality TV obsessed future and how todays media treats celebrities is stunning. Spaceman is much a warning to us as it is a tale of little girl being taken from her parents. We better be careful how much we let the media run our lives or this could be where we are headed. Spaceman ends in a fully satisfying way.

Its a classic play on words, and one that the reader could have seen coming if they paid enough attention. Azzarello and Risso have given us another classic story and the end has me impatiently waiting for these two creators to team up again. Consistently good creative teams are hard to find and these two are a match made in heaven. Or maybe Mars. Read Full Review
