Wasted Space is a sci-fi comic series published by Vault Comics that Nerdist called “Easily the best new series to hit comic shops so far this year.” The series is written by Michael Moreci (Roche LimitBlack Star RenegadesNightwing), illustrated by Hayden Sherman (The FewJohn Carter: The End), colored by Jason Wordie, and lettered by Jim Campbell. The synopsis of the first issue of Wasted Space #1 can be found below:

“Billy Bane is a prophet who got it all wrong, and the galaxy has been burning ever since. All he wants is to waste away in the darkest corner of space with his best pal Dust, a supercharged Fuq bot. But when a new prophet comes calling, Billy is summoned to save the galaxy he’s at least partially responsible for destroying. Too bad he couldn’t care less. Michael Moreci (Roche Limit, Black Star Renegades) and Hayden Sherman (The Few, Cold War, John Carter: The End) have thrown Philip K. Dick in a blender with Preacher. Take a sip and get wasted.”
