Caliban Vol 1(TPB)

In space no one can hear you scream…or come to your rescue, as the doomed crew of the Caliban find out in a blood-chilling Avatar Press mini-series that’s scripted by none other than legendary comic scribe Garth Ennis!

The series rolled out this past year, and its prelude was a cryptic utterance once made by Carl Sagan who famously wrote in Pale Blue Dot, “The universe is not made for us.”

The crew of the mining ship Caliban is on a routine mission deep in the universe and confident that nothing outside the normal humdrum monotony of space travel will occur.  But when they encounter an alien vessel their dreams of a simple mission turn into a nightmare unfolding along the lonely corridors of the cold steel ship.  Something is stalking them and systematically eliminating the few remaining personnel one by one.

How can you fight something you can’t even understand?

Claustrophobic terror grips the crew now as they attempt to escape the thing that has waited patiently for them to eventually arrive in the vast lonely darkness.

No one is safe in deep space.

Revolutionary comics writer Garth Ennis (Preacher, Crossed) takes you to a very dark place with the type of high tension paranoid storytelling that will leave a lasting mark on you.  Beautifully illustrated by Facundo Percio (Fashion Beast), Caliban is a must read for horror and sci-fi fans alike.

This volume collects the Caliban #1 – 7 comic book series.
