Billy Bane is a prophet who got it all wrong, and the galaxy has been burning ever since. All he wants is to waste away in the darkest corner of space with his best pal Dust, a supercharged Fuq bot. But when a new prophet comes calling, Billy is summoned to save the galaxy he's at least partially responsible for destroying. Too bad he couldn't care less. Michael Moreci and Hayden Sherman have thrown Philip K. Dick in a blender with Preacher. Take a sip and get wasted.

    Wasted Space is a welcomed newcomer to the space saga genre. It gives you many things that you've seen before, but in a very different way. That's one of Vault's strengths as a publisher. I'm in the camp that it's impossible to come up with something 100% original, but if you put the right spin on it, it can make your story feel like something that's never been seen before. That's what Wasted Space seems to be shaping up to be. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Mar 27, 2018

    Wasted Space #1 is a super solid debut issue with an incredible amount of promise. Being a vocal proponent of Vault, I'm often asked for a good title to start with, and for the sci-fi set my answer moving forward will likely be Wasted Space. Basically, Wasted Space is a sci-fi allegory for our tumultuous times, one that raises questions about demagogues, escapism, and the dual businesses of selling religion and drugs. This debut issue does a great job of setting the stage and piquing interest for future installments. Count me in. Read Full Review

    As for the aesthetic of Wasted Space? Big-budget mayhem. Think a Ralph Bakshi joint produced by the Wachowskis and you're about there. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Apr 20, 2018

    Its a slow start for sure, but the characterisation is strong and the basic premise is sound. It also looks fantastic, so theres absolutely no reason not to pick this first issue up and gradually immerse yourself in what promises to be a fascinating look at the fragile nature of faith through the lens of dystopian sci-fi.

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Apr 11, 2018

    'Wasted Space' is off to a fast start, setting up a wild sci-fi adventure that's not only brimming with attitude but a sly subtext about the excesses of the world. A potent mixture of clever dialogue, creative design, and extraordinary world-building gives 'Wasted Space' an urgency that sucks you in and demands your attention. Moreci and company give Vault another sci-fi comic that's a must-read.  Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joshua Hilgenberg May 29, 2018

    Narratively, there are contrasts between raunchy humor and religious themes. In the art, there are sketchy lines butted up against sharp colors. In the characters, there are original ideas marred by old ones. Billy Bane seems to be swimming against the current. An ex-religious-figurehead in a sci-fi world is new, but the way that he deals with his emotions is not. Read Full Review
