The webcomic sensation returns in an all-new ongoing print series with Image Comics
First announced at the C2E2 conference, Ryan Browne’s (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS, BEDLAM) farcical cult-sensation GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS returns with a new story this September from Image Comics.
In GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS, a NASA-funded group of arrogant "super people" must stop a rash of farmers that have been using rocket-powered silos to launch themselves into outer space. As these Astro-Farmers fire themselves all over the galaxy, NASA must utilize their every resource (a guy with a ghost-cow head, a bunch of magic bears, and a Chicago cop with robot arms) to avoid an intergalactic incident.
"Jumping from weekly web-comic to large scale epic adventure has been extremely challenging and rewarding,” said Browne of his transition from webcomic to Kickstarter project to an ongoing print series with Image Comics. “It was very important to make God Hates Astronauts #1 a perfect jumping on point for new readers, while having enough allusions and references to the old material for the series' die hard fans. I hope you guys like astronaut farmers with laser pitchforks, space crab armadas, and three-dimensional cowboy narrators! Rest assured, it will all make sense yet be as stupidly-ridiculous as the law will allow!"
The first issue of GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS arrives in stores 9/3 and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code JUL140440. There will also be a variant cover featuring art by Geof Darrow available to pre-order with Diamond Code JUL140441.
