Here's four pages from the first issue of SPACEMAN, Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's newest collaboration.



The issue's part of DC's new initiative of making certain first issues $1, to persuade more folks to give new series a try. As others have pointed out online, you might want to consider at least giving this one issue a shot; even if it's not for you and you don't buy issue 2, the increased sales for issue 1 sends DC the message that the $1 initiative does increase the number of samplers, that it does do what it's meant to.



The main character of the series is Orson, the titular "spaceman," who was genetically engineered and bred by NASA for space exploration. But NASA collapsed and he never did end up going to space. Like so many others, he's stuck in a miserable, futile life on the flooded Earth.



Orson makes his living, if you can call it that, scavenging in the waters for junk to sell. He learns today that the government just devalued the dollar. Again.



The only solace in his life lies in drugs, which allow him to temporarily hallucinate that he's living the life he's meant to, as an intrepid astronaut on Mars:
