"Rogue Planet is an old-fashioned throwback to wild science fiction sagas of yesteryear, punctuated with unbridled storytelling and bold, imaginative artwork." -- SyFy Wire

Rogue Planet is a twisting descent into cosmic horror from an all-star creative team including the writer of the runaway hit The Sixth Gun and the artist of Doctor Strange !

Salvage vessel Cortes tracks the Lonely Orphan, a planet with no star system to call its own. Somewhere on this hostile rock is a payload fit for a king. To attain it, though, the crew of the Cortes must brave razor rock, poisonous vapors, treacherous footing, and... the most mind-numbing horrors imaginable. Struggling to stay alive, they are beset at every turn by horrors from their own nightmares. Now, they have discovered that they are not alone on the planet, and the other inhabitants welcome them... as sacrifices to an elder god.

Stranded on a vicious, murderous, seemingly intelligent planet, the crew of the Cortes must reevaluate what it truly means to survive, and what they are willing to do in order to spare their own lives.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The eight-member crew of the salvage vessel Cort├ęs sail into a deathtrap world in this vivid psychological twist on the standard alien monster story from Bunn (the Deadpool series). Despite entering a landscape populated by corpses, gigantic otherworldly lungs, and bloody graffiti scrawled in an alien language, the crew don't try to escape until one of them is murdered by a gooey, tentacled mass. The main cast proves a lot to keep track of, but Bunn provides each a defining character quirk, such as one member's sotto voce recitation of all the girls he's loved before. The story combines all the elements of a true jump-scare space opera: Bunn injects his script with paranoia and fight-or-flight impulses, winding up tension and playing on timing, and MacDonald (the Teen Titans: Earth One series) cranks up the body horror with nightmare aliens made of intestines punctuated with eyes, or scorpions formed of human bones and guts. Bold and bright coloring by Nick Filardi (the Nightwing series) pops with neon greens and bloody reds, and he cleverly tints the faceplates of the crew's space helmets in different colors to help distinguish characters. The eventual solution to this deadly puzzle-box planet hinges on empathy, not science--a fitting humanist cap. This outer-space chiller manages to deliver an intensely spiritual vibe. (Mar.)"
