Howdy Gatherers and Grand Geeks among the stars! Hope everyone’s weekend was fine and dandy. The seasons have changed and we are now into fall it would seem. Hopefully someone tells the actual weather of that change soon enough, though. For the temperature’s still quite warm all around. Until it starts to cool down though I’ll still be staying where I can maintain a tolerable temperature while enjoying a good indie book or two. Speaking of indie books, let’s see what I can suggest for you this week!
Margo, Intergalactic Trash Collector #1 (of 3)
Writer(s): Jim Whiting
Artist(s): Jim Whiting
Cover Artist(s): Jim Whiting, Joe Staton
Publisher: FantaCo Enterprises
Synopsis: “First Issue, New Series! When the ultimate weapon falls into the wrong hands, the only thing standing between it and universal annihilation is an alien trader and an Intergalactic Trash Collector with attitude! When not bickering with her mother, Margo runs trash for the IWM Corp. Utterly overqualified and severely underpaid, Margo may be the last hope for the universe.”
I’ve always wondered just how the business of trash collecting would go about in a future time when FTL travel was possible among the stars. Luckily in this three issue miniseries we see a humorous yet action packed idea of just how it might be. Enter Margo, a collector of trash for the intergalactic corporation IWM. She doesn’t get paid enough for this job and seems to be way overqualified for it to begin with, but, will her attitudes change when its clear an item she’s come across can put the very fate of the cosmos itself in the balance?!
