Go on the run with a sneak peek at Image Comics’ “Errand Boys” #1

There’s a lot you can do with the storytelling trope of the little guy who gets in over his head.  It’s a relatable characteristic, for one thing, because too often we get involved in things that are well beyond our control, so it’s nice rooting for an underdog hero.  The latest example of this is Image Comics’ upcoming Errand Boys, a science-fiction adventure series that follows two brothers on their crazy adventures as... well, errand boys.  Check out the preview below, including a variant cover from comics legend Erik Larsen.

SNEAK A PEEK AT THIS EXCITING ERRAND BOYS PREVIEW

PORTLAND, OR, 09/07/2018 — Image Comics is pleased to reveal a first look excerpt from the new series ERRAND BOYS by D.J. Kirkbride and Nikos Koutsis, which will hit stores in October.

In the future, if you can’t find a decent job, you run errands—the dangerous, often illegal kind. In ERRAND BOYS, readers met 30-year-old Jace Lopaz is a hard-worn scoundrel and a lifelong solo act—until he’s saddled with his 13-year-old half-brother Tawnk full-time. Now Jace has two mouths to feed while evading the law, running from aliens, and jumping off skyscrapers. The only thing weirder than the vastness of space is family.

Errand Boys  #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on October 3.
