Just read Space Riders #1 from Black Mask Studios and really enjoyed it. The art has this really cool psychedelic quality especially the coloring. The premise is basically a disgraced space captain gets a second chance to redeem himself. He's joined by his first mate who is an anthropomorphic baboon and a female robot. From what I've read about it online it may only be a four issue miniseries.
From the galactic core to the outer quadrants, one name strikes terror in the hearts of evil beings everywhere: the Space Riders!
Sailing the cosmos in the Skullship Santa Muerte, Capitan Peligro and his fearless crew deal harsh justice to the scum of the galaxy while searching for the forbidden truths of the universe! Fabian Rangel Jr (Doc Unknown) and Alexis Ziritt (The Package) bring you a new and exciting space adventure that will destroy your brain! (in a good way)
I picked up Space Riders: Galaxy of Brutality #2 this week at my LCS and was pretty excited to read it. Unfortunately Black Mask Studios has had issues with getting books out regularly which apparently isn't exclusive to this title. I guess I'd rather read something that's consistently high quality than have books rushed out to fill obligatory deadlines. Has anyone else checked out this series? I managed to score both the TPB of volume 1 as well as the first issue of Galaxy of Brutality back on Free Comic Book Day.
Things are coming to a climax in Space Riders: Galaxy of Brutality #3 as they confront their big bad. The end of the comic mentions it's "To Be Concluded" in the next issue but I'm not sure if that simply refers to this story arc or the volume and we'll get another renumbering. Given the inconsistency of Black Mask Studios' output hopefully we'll get at least one more issue in 2017.
