Drifting above a vast green planet in a damaged orbital POD, Commander Wyatt is running desperately low on resources, patience and time. Faced with little choice but to descend on this unknown world, he sets out to find what he can in the hope of repairing his dying machine.

Oh my gosh!  You're  the one who made this!! I read this a couple months ago and loved it!  The story was an interesting take on the whole "clone ethics" question :)  Can't wait for the next one!

Great work! U have Caught my Attention, loved bot the art and storyline so far. I wonder though did the pod set him down close enough to any of the things he is looking for or is the 5 hours enough time to travel a 3 - 10 miles round trip and still have time for him to pull back anything he is looking for to help the pod?

Thanks very much, the feel is all down to the amazing job Ian did of writing such a brilliant story.
He described the action, included comments on the type of camera angle so it was really great for me to illustrate and put my own style to it.

Issue 2 which is currently in the rough pencils stage takes the story in a brilliant direction, plenty of action and twists and turns ;)
Thanks for taking the time to read and for commenting, it helps keep us motivated for issue 2 and beyond :)

I know there isn't, I used to be a good storyteller but as I gotten older it seems harder to put a story together,  I have my own characters and what I want to write but it's like a blank lol.  I am new to comic art, as in how to set everything up in pages, for practice I recently made a scientific equation (I like science and sci-fi) into a comic style page which turned out pretty well for my first setup.  I even sent it to SETI an got the lead astronomer to email me back the next day which was nice and surprising, but I will practice more to see if I can gather a real story of something because that tool is really cool and I have seen some wonderful work from artists out there including yours :happybounce:

Well you will certainly enjoy where the story goes in issue 2 (I'm currently roughing it out ;) )
Ian has done a great job at making the story have that classic sci-fi survival but with a few twists and turns to keep things juicy.

Thanks for reading and the kind words, we're really happy people are enjoying it :)
