Space Ghost Soars Once More In New Comic Series

Space Ghost

The legendary guardian of the spaceways returns to comics this May, as Dynamite, Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, and a heavy-hitting creative team led by David Pepose and Jonathan Lau present a new era for the hero Space Ghost.

Greed and corruption flourish in the darkness between stars. The Galactic Federation’s territories are spread across the cosmos, far and wide in the vastness of space. At the scale of the cosmic landscape, pirates, hijackers and other nefarious actors are able to slip stealthily through the pitch black, ransacking distant colonies with cruel disregard for the innocent scientists that inhabit them. They’ve often been able to get away with impunity. Yet a powerful force is set to put a stop to this, a cosmic vigilante who metes out justice throughout the known galaxy, bringing vengeance to those who prey upon the defenseless.

Evil cannot hide from the gaze of Space Ghost.

“I’m so excited to be diving into the world of Space Ghost!,” said writer David Pepose. “When Dynamite first approached me about tackling this series, I was immediately struck by the sheer amount of raw material we had to play with — the cartoons were immensely stylish and a heck of a lot of fun, but they never had the time to develop those characters beyond their powers and the roles they played in each episode. So we’re taking those classic vibes and using them as a starting point to dig even deeper into the characters than the original cartoons were ever able to.”

His true origins and motivations are unknown to many. Some claim he is a policeman who abandoned the rigidity of the law. Others contend he must be the sole survivor of a war-torn planet. Or a phantom with no story. Those who have survived his wrath live to tell he is a force of nature, able to bend the very elements of creation to deal with his foes.

He goes by Space Ghost and his adventures start here in an all-new comic book series. Award-winning writer David Pepose takes the captain’s seat on this cosmic adventure, following critically acclaimed work on titles including Punisher, Moon Knight: City of the Dead, and Spencer & Locke. He’s joined by a Dynamite all-star in Jonathan Lau, who has delivered many of Dynamite’s most action-packed hits like Vampirella Strikes, Green Hornet, and Red Sonja: Age of Chaos.

The team invites fans for the kickoff — a surprise attack on Space Colony Omicron, home of brilliant scientist Dr. Jerrod Keplar, his young children Jan and Jace, as well as their monkey Blip. Only the wild card of Space Ghost will be able to save them from the ruthless pirates.

The series includes a diverse range of beautiful covers by the finest artists in the known universe, including Francesco Mattina, Jae Lee, Bjorn Barends, and Michael Cho.

Space Ghost debuted as a beloved cartoon from Hanna-Barbera in the 1960s, designed by visionary artist Alex Toth. The character has been presented in several unique ways beloved by fans across animation, comic books, and beyond — and the next chapter is here.

SPACE GHOST #1 is slated for release in May 2024. It will also be available through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more.
