BOOM! Studios put out this graphic novel written and created by Samuel L. Jackson /Eric Calderon with the artwork done by Jeremy Rock. Yes, it is THE Samuel L. Jackson. Who knew the guy was a comic book fan? He explains all that in the introduction in a style that is all his own. I had the feeling he was talking directly to me, explaining what I was going to be experiencing in the graphic novel. Here is the synopsis of the 112 page Cold Space:
“From Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson and Eric Calderon, the team that brought you the Emmy-award-winning, best-selling AFRO SAMURAI comes their next original series-COLD SPACE. When an on-the-run outlaw crash-lands on a hostile planet on the brink of civil war, he finds himself in the crossfire between two warring factions. But in chaos lies opportunity-because where there's money to be made. A hard-boiled sci-fi action-adventure with covers by Eisner Award-winning artist Dave Johnson and IRREDEEMABLE cover artist Jeffrey Spokes!”
If you are looking for fun, adventure and witty dialogue in your graphic novel this is the right one. Here is Mulberry ( Samuel L. Jackson’s character) yapping in one of the panels, it just sounds like him:” Are you sure you wanna do that? ‘Cause if you ain’t..You need to be getting’ up outta my space.” Mulberry is a fun character that is a mix of many things, and many things he is not. Jackson explains in his introduction what they are trying to do with the character, it is fresh and fun.
The artwork is nice, the cover gallery is cool, and this is just a hip, rad, romp. I was surprised to see this available, and I have plans to try to keep up with it if there are any other editions. I can definitely see him playing Mulberry in a movie if they get it made. If you read it, get back to me on who you think could play the other main parts. I am going to give this the five star treatment: fun characters, fun introduction, fun dialogue, fun… I think you get the picture. Give reality a vacation and go for the intergalactic ride with Samuel L. Jackson/Eric Calderon; they wouldn’t leave you out in a Cold Space.
