What is Outcasts of Jupiter?

A thousand years from now a group of four vagabonds roam the fringes of an untamed and wild galaxy, identifying unique and unusual jobs that spark their collective interests and challenge their unique abilities

We meet the Outcasts, Stein, Sulesh and Denarii in the middle of attempting a jailbreak to free their comrade, Persio from captivity. The reasons for Persio’s abduction become clearer over the course of the comic’s run, but it’s up to the rest of the team to get him out of the Burj, a mysterious tower located in the courtyard of a heavily fortified clifftop palace.

Why Should We Pick This Up?

It’s the A-Team in space, with a healthy dose of smart pulp and scifi fantasy. It’s a fun, funny, action packed, old fashioned, rousing adventure tale with a whole galaxy to explore. We’ve been influenced by eclectic sources like Conan the Barbarian, Miyazaki, Tintin, Asterix, Blacksad, Hellboy, A Princess of Mars, Flash Gordon, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, Parker and… well I could go on. We’re also going to be injecting a bit of Pan-African mythology in places where it makes sense.

In short, we think it’s a beautiful, unique and unusual book, a fresh take on the genre that we can’t wait to share with everyone!
