In Gary Pearson's newest novel, an unlikely collection of space explorers find themselves millions of light years from home, amid many strange new worlds and the dangers they contain. With nods to Star Trek, Star Wars, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Slaughterhouse 5, Firefly and other classics, Marooned in Space is a comic science fiction adventure about the future-- complete with aliens, lifelike robots, internet brain implants, cryogenic space travel and a Ford F-150 pick-up truck. Authored and illustrated with over 20 drawings by award-winning television writer Gary Pearson (Mad TV, Corner Gas, Sunnyside, That's So Weird, This Hour Has 22 Minutes), Marooned in Space! asks: "Instead of the superstar astronauts that typically go on galactic adventures, what if we saw a more ordinary collection of regular folks in deep space?" The space ship, The Icarus 7, is peopled by a failed cartoonist, a teen genius, a shop owner, a teacher, a brewery owner, a public relations hack, a super model, a young preacher, a little girl, a billionaire...and his wife. This is Pearson's third novel, following 'Slapshot of Love' and 'Me and the Crack Mayor', which are also available from Amazon.
