Image Comics' interstellar road trip series "Void Trip" to be collected this May
Science fiction, as a genre, has long been used to tell stories that simultaneously stretch the imagination and shed light on humanity. Even with the most fantastic and outlandish concepts and ideas, science fiction says as much about how we relate with one another as it does the imagination of the storyteller.
Road trip stories are kind of the same thing, except, you know, in cars and stuff.
Thankfully, Image Comics is here to give us a little bit of both, as they're set to collect the sci-fi road trip story Void Trip from Ryan O'Sullivan and Plaid Klaus. Due this May, Void Trip collects the five-issue miniseries that follows the misadventures of Ana and Gabe, the last two humans in the galaxy.
VOID TRIP TAKES YOU ON A ROAD TRIP TO THE FINAL FRONTIER
The entire five-issue miniseries gets collected in paperback this May
PORTLAND, OR, 04/10/2018 — Ryan O’Sullivan (Turncoat, The Evil Within, Warhammer 40,000) and Plaid Klaus’ (Turncoat) sci-fi road trip miniseries VOID TRIP will be collected in a conveniently bingeable trade paperback this May from Image Comics.
Meet Ana and Gabe—the last two humans left alive in the galaxy.
They're low on fuel, they're low on food, and they're low on psychedelic space froot, but they're still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise super-planet Euphoria. VOID TRIP is the story of their journey, the friends and enemies they made along the way, and how the universe responded to those who dared to live freely within it.
“VOID TRIP aims to answer the question: ‘how can we be free in a universe that will always course-correct to limit us?’” said O’Sullivan. “This isn’t your typical adventure comic, with violence as the solution to every conflict. It’s a road trip story. Its main concern is exploring the human condition. It's Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson meets Herman Melville and Cormac McCarthy. Expect laughter, tears, and existential dread in equal measure.”
Void Trip will be available in comic shops on May 30, and will hit other booksellers on June 5.
