Embarking on a deep-space odyssey toward a prospective new home, Boom! Studios' "The Space Between" is penned by the Hugo and Eisner nominated writer Corinna Bechko ("The Expanse," "Star Wars: Legacy," "Green Lantern: Earth One"), and illustrated by artist Danny Luckert ("The Red Mother," "Ghostlore").
We've got an exclusive preview of the debut issue's covers and series details to share before it launches on Nov. 1, 2023.
"This is such a vast, sweeping epic that transcends science fiction in a lot of ways," series editor Sophie Philips-Roberts said in a press statement. "Corinna and Danny have really crafted something special, and I can't wait for you all to see the story unfold aboard the Dodona!"
Here's the full synopsis from Boom!:
"Aboard the ark known as the Dodona, the populations of workers live in strictly segregated social castes during the journey that will take multiple generations to complete. But everything changes when a pilot from the upper tier named Revla falls to the lower levels and meets Les. As the two grow closer, they learn that they will have to risk everything, not just for themselves, but for the generations to come on the Dodona!"
One intriguing hook here is the fact that every issue of Boom!'s event series spotlights a different pair of protagonists squaring off against each new generation's trials and tribulations in this sci-fi epic revolving around love, survival and liberation.
"I feel incredibly fortunate to be telling this story of romance and revolution with Danny," said Bechko in an official statement. "Life might be what happens while you're making other plans, but what if those plans were made long before you were even born? I can't wait for folks to enter 'The Space Between' and find out!"
"I'm so excited for readers to get their hands on this book! Corinna has created a fully fleshed out environment, and it's been a real joy to help bring it to life," added Luckert.
Boom! Studios' "The Space Between #1" comes to Earth on Nov. 1, 2023, showcasing a main cover by Danny Luckert with variants from artists David Mack ("Kabuki"), and Ariel Olivetti ("Cable").
