From the Eisner award-winning team behind 100 BULLETS comes the sci-fi story of Orson, a man genetically engineered to withstand the harsh journey to Mars and finds himself trapped in a seriously harsher reality. On the outskirts of the flooded city, Orson's on the trail of some bloodthirsty pirates. Seems they're both after the same precious treasure. The only difference is that Orson wants the treasure alive...

    Fans of the creative team needn't worry. Spaceman is another worthy collaboration between Azzarello and Risso. And considering the fairly slow pace the plot has taken so far, it will likely only get better from here. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Dec 5, 2011

    This is a comic for adults - some rough language and violence here - but so far, I'm enjoying it. It's a challenge to sort out the story, but all the more rewarding for it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Dec 5, 2011

    It's a collaboration that's constant but the result for Spaceman is something different than what we've seen before. While its obviously the same creative team that created 100 Bullets, every aspect of the book feels different than that conspiracy story. Spaceman #2 shows that we should expect the new out of our comics. Of course you can recognize thew work of Azzarello and Risso in these pages but this looks and feels nothing like any of the stories that the've done before this. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Dec 7, 2011

    It's a slow burn, but it still rides high on the reputations of the creators. If this was a couple of new guys, I probably wouldn't have faith that it would turn out so well, but since it is Azzarello and Risso, I'm in for the whole 9 issues and they can take their time. It's got a lot of things going for it: weird future, mysterious protagonist, violence, great art… Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Nov 30, 2011

    While only two issues in, "Spaceman" is already showing its true nature as a beast unlike anything else. The writing is crisp and the art is spectacular. The content is fresh and inspiring in scope and the execution mostly matches the ambition of the project. This melting pot of a tale offers a little something for everyone and if you can handle the whole mess together then this will be for you. Read Full Review
