Image Comics have announced that they will release a trade paperback collection of Ryan Browne’s webcomic God Hates Astronauts on October 9.
In God Hates Astronauts, the announcement explains, “NASA hires the Power Persons 5 to keep the nation’s farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. The bad news is that NASA is wasting their money, because this gang of hooligans is going to hang out, get drunk, have extra-marital affairs, and occasionally save the day in spite of themselves.”
God Hates Astronauts: Volume I will not only include the original webcomic, but also a hundred pages of “rare and all-new material not available on the web.”
This, the release says, will include “18 all-new two-page origin stories written by Browne and drawn by some of the best talent in comics, including Tradd Moore, Tim Seeley, Riley Rossmo, Tom Scioli, Nick Pitarra, C.P. Wilson III, Zander Cannon, Jenny Frison, Chris Mitten, and Hilary Barta,” as well as more than 20 pin-ups from such artists as Rebekah Isaacs, Mike Norton, Chris Burnham, and Tom Fowler, and “a reference guide that explains the parodies and inside jokes.”
God Hates Astronauts: Volume I is currently available for preorder from Amazon for $13.49.
