Cape & Cowl Comics Book Club VI - Space Riders w/ Fabian Rangel, Jr.

Cape and Cowl's BYOB book club is back and we are proud to welcome the writer of Space Riders, Fabian Rangel Jr! Space Riders is one of the most awesome and exciting new books to come out over the last few years. You may have heard us say this in the store before, but we like to describe it as reading an 80's action movie drawn by Jack Kirby on Speed. It's just super, super fun.

Here's the official, less speed filled description:

"From the galactic core to the outer quadrants, one name strikes terror in the hearts of evil beings everywhere: The Space Riders! Sailing the cosmos in the Skullship Santa Muerte, Capitan Peligro and his fearless crew deal harsh justice to the scum of the galaxy while searching for the hidden truths of the universe! Collecting the four sold out issues of the psychedelic revenge tale from the minds of Alexis Ziritt and Fabian Rangel, Jr!"

Come out and let's pick the dude's brain!

"When scrawny Marty Spencer is drafted into the Vietnam War, he finds himself smack dab in the middle of the heart of darkness. But Marty has a secret. A secret even from himself. And Vietnam is a hell of a place to find out you're a werewolf."
