Lost On Planet Earth #1 (Comic): Tipstor? Pick
In the Lost On Planet Earth #1, it’s 2381, and Basil Miranda, on the verge of graduation, knows exactly what she’s doing with the rest of her life and always has: a primo assignment on the best ship in the fleet alongside her best friend in the world. She has meticulously prepared herself, and the final Fleet Exam is tomor-row. But what if none of that is what she really wants? And why hasn’t she ever asked herself that before?

Summary: Lost on Planet Earth is the latest expectation-defying series from Visaggio, the Eisner-nominated writer of Kim & Kim and Eternity Girl, whose acclaimed comic Vagrant Queen was recently adapted for TV by SYFY. Lost on Planet Earth reunites Visaggio with artist Aguirre. The pair previously collaborated on Kim & Kim and created the acclaimed series Morning in America; they are joined by letterer Zakk Saam and editor Joe Corallo. This is the first release for Visaggio, Aguirre, Saam, and Corallo under the name DEATH RATTLE, a rock band-style moniker for their creative collaborations.
Lost on Planet Earth #1 is a great opening for a new mini-series. The story is emotive and grounded, which presents a different look at sci-fi worlds where intergalactic fleets exist. Visaggio and Aguirre create a sci-fi futuristic story that prays tribute to our everyday tribulations and preciousness. With a great depiction of a breakdown that will change our main character’s life, it takes us away from the stars to look into our emotions.
