    Default Astrohustle - twists, turns, fun!

    A new series, in which... a lot happens: a space-adventure/socio-political-religious commentary, with pirates, and lots of little asides-- a robot called Shawzbot, a rogue character named Chen Andalou of the starship Sinnematica, weapons that sound, "Pew""pew".

    A comic intro, a quick, broad, sketch-comedy slapstick that takes a sudden quick turn into seriousness, as even the artwork affects a more standard SF/superhero style as this becomes the story of a man sixty-years 'gone' inexplicably returned to a very changed 'future', then veers back into a bright and silly genre switch as it takes off into adventure, steadily keeping me both off-base and entertained.

    [NB: "Chien Andalou," a brutally odd cinematic work. 'Shazbot' an expression of annoyance for Robin William's "Mork." Pew-pew.]

    This seemed very marketed at me, and boy was it a fun read. Can't wait for issue 2.

    Amazing work on the colors.

    Looks like people are trying to cash in on the allegations against Nitz by unloading their issue ones on eBay. Not many are going beyond cover price so far.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.
