About The Book

“All work is political. That’s the line in issue 1 that really stood out to me because it’s so true right now. HIGHBALL is the story of a man who drinks to succeed. There’s some great gags about drinking in HIGHBALL, but in a lot of ways this is a story about the hangover of late stage capitalism.”

- Fred Harper (Artist)


Meet Highball, ace pilot of the Earth Space Corp. He’s the best shot in the galaxy, except for one big problem: he can only hit the target when he’s dead drunk

In the far future, Earth’s finest pilot, call-sign HIGHBALL, finds himself caught between two alien races: the arrogant, cerebral Mentok and the fierce, birdlike Q’k’q’rr’kkk. In his one-man Byter ship, Highball must defuse an alien bomb and survive against a vicious enemy. But Highball has a deadly weakness: He can only hit the target when he’s stone drunk. In his quest to save the galaxy, Highball stumbles headfirst into obstacles such as nefarious space enemies, fellow pilots, the maddening bureaucracy of Space Corp—and, of course, his own shameful inadequacies!

Highball collects all 5 issues of the comic book series written by Stuart Moore (The Zodiac Legacy) with art by Fred Harper (Snelson: Comedy is Dyring) and colors by Lee Loughridge.

Raves and Reviews

“If we took the current sh*tshow that is humanity out into space this very minute, it would be no surprise that our hero would be Stuart Moore and Fred Harper’s HIGHBALL. A little bit Futurama, and a little bit Red Dwarf, and a whole lotta space booze.”

– Darick Robertson (Co-Creator of The Boys)
