Preview: Space Warped, from kaboom!
The sci-fi parody Space Warped is one of the initial offerings from BOOM! Studios’ new kids’ imprint, kaboom! (they sure do love their exclamation points down at the BOOM! offices), and while the book won’t be out until June, they released a ten-page preview this week. Written by Hervé Bourhis and illustrated by Rudy Spiessert, it will be released as a two-issue miniseries. Here’s the publisher’s blurb:
Far away, in a land long ago…there was an orphaned farm kid with daddy issues trying to rescue an orphaned princess unaware of her daddy issues! In the tradition of ROBOT CHICKEN: STAR WARS and SPACEBALLS comes a loving, affectionate parody of the greatest science fiction franchise of all time!
