Media Release — Eisner-winning writer Sean Kelley McKeever (The Waiting Place, Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane), artist Alexandre Tefenkgi, and colorist Jean-Francois Beaulieu will release OUTPOST ZERO, VOL. 1 this November from Image/Skybound.
Welcome to Outpost Zero: the smallest town in the universe. The people here work the land, go to the fights every Friday night, and tuck their children into bed…but the Outpost is no place for dreams. To survive is ambitious enough.
But as Alea and her friends graduate to adulthood under the artificial sky of a faulty biome on a frozen world that was never meant to support human life…something stirs. Something sees.
OUTPOST ZERO, VOL. 1 (Diamond code: SEP180104, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0692-9) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, November 7th and bookstores on Tuesday, November 13th. It can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
Select praise for OUTPOST ZERO:

“The usual heart, laughs, and action from Sean McKeever! Highly recommended!”
“A smart and engaging comic that stands out in a crowded field of [science fiction] books.” —Uproxx
“Like a John Hughes film set in the future, OUTPOST ZERO is a coming-of-age tale that’s reminiscent of Lost in Space.” —ComicBook.com
“The premise is solid, the characters are interesting, and the art is excellent. This one earns a strong recommendation.” —Bleeding Cool
