After one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns EVER, Image Comics is teaming with God Hates Astronauts creator Ryan Browne to bring the beloved web comic to comic shops everywhere this October!
Check out the full press release below.
“Six years in the making, GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS is now available as 180 pages of total nonsense smashed between two pillowy-soft covers! So you may be asking the house plant sitting next to you “What in God’s name is God Hates Astronauts?”– Well let me tell you.
Written and drawn by Ryan Browne (Manhattan Projects, Bedlam, Smoke and Mirrors) comes the ultimate collection of the most outrageous weirdo parody comic on the web, GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS— recolored and with 100 pages of content not on the web! Imagine a book that is a bizarre mix of “The Venture Brothers“, “Adventure Time“, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force“, “The Tick” and that hilarious Billy Bob Thornton film “The Astronaut Farmer” and your brain still won’t be prepared for GHA.
GHA follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super powered narcissists called “The Power Persons Five” who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. Unfortunately, for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank robing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing. Not as much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to Robo-Cop and Die Hard.
FEATURING COLLABORATIONS FROM TONS OF TOP ARTISTS!
This book contains all three oversized issues””re-lettered, color tweaked and perfected from what you saw on the web. It also contains the two original GHA 24-page, 24-hour comics, tons of amazing pin-ups, a full reference guide for the series AND 18 ORIGINAL TWO-PAGE ORIGIN STORIES WRITTEN BY ME AND DRAWN BY”¦
