Score: ★★★★★ (5/5)



One of the best comic book series being published today returns with a rollicking new arc. The funniest most thought-provoking space opera is back for more death-defying missions and stinging existential commentaries. Part science fiction adventure, part philosophy class, 'Wasted Space' is anything but a waste, just the most engaging and enjoyable time you can have in comics. 

Already accustomed to jumping headlong into some dangerous ill-conceived missions, the crew reluctantly embrace another one. As expected, things go awry and lucky for us it's a complete blast. All of this leads to some awkward conversations and some self-reflection. No one balances high-adventure with deep internal existentialism like Michael Moreci. In the end, it's really about the relationships between these characters that bind them together and keep us rooting for them. 

Hayden Sherman and Jason Wordie reach another level of creativity and execution with an issue of such complex designs. It's probably their most impressive display of art throughout the series. They deserve an award for this issue alone. The designs, the colors, the mind-boggling precision is outstanding. I'm not going to spoil any of it. It should be witnessed firsthand with the same awe and appreciation that I had. 

'Wasted Space' is back with a bang. Everything you love about the series - the hi-jinks, the danger, the humor, the philosophical monologues - are all on hand for another rip-roaring adventure through space. There are few "must-buys" in comics and 'Wasted Space' is definitely one of them.
