About The Book

WASTED SPACE is an out-of-this-world cocktail that’s one part Preacher, one part Star Wars, and a delectable dose of Philip K. Dick shaken well … take a sip and get wasted.


Billy is a prophet who got it all wrong - he used to hear the voice of the Creator, and that didn't work out so great. OK. If we're being honest, he led the galaxy to total, burning ruin. All he wants is to waste away in the darkest corner of space with his best pal Dust, a supercharged Fuqbot. But when a new prophet comes calling, Billy and Dust, are summoned and set out to save what's left of the galaxy.

Too bad he couldn't care less.

From Michael Moreci (Barbaric, The Plot, Spree, and Revealer - based on the Shudder original movie - all from Vault Comics; Black Star Renegades) and Hayden Sherman (The Few, Cold War, John Carter: The End).
