Starship Down


While the industry had the majority of its operations on pandemic hiatus, Starship Down #1 managed to slip past the blockade. While the single issues have since been cancelled as a pandemic casualty, the TPB collecting all four issues will debut October 21st, 2020. Diamond Order Code: JUN200336

PRESS:

"Starship Down maintains a furious originality that’s kicked into hyper-drive by eye popping, sumptuously detailed artwork."
"Starship Down could easily become one of this year's sleeper hits."

-Tim Cundle, Mass Movement UK

"Starship Down hits all of the right notes. It has the polish of a big-budget sci-fi movie, and the characters are unique and distinctive."
-Fanbase Press

"The book has ambitious scope, and Andrea Mutti’s art labours hard to evoke that from the first page."
-Paradox Comics


"The art is some of the best work of Andrea Mutti's career."
-Forces of Geek

Justin Giampaoli @ Yesteryear Comics [Signing]



On Wednesday March 18, 2020, I’ll be signing Starship Down #1 at Yesteryear Comics in San Diego, which is hosting me for their next in-store signing. Starship Down is a 4-issue sci-fi drama about a long lost extraterrestrial craft found buried deep under the ice in Siberia, and it shatters our understanding of mankind’s place in the universe. It’s written by me, with art by Andrea Mutti, colors by Vladimir Popov, and letters by Sal Cipriano. 

I’ll be signing all day, from 9am to 8pm, and will have extra copies of other books I’ve worked on, including Rome West and DMZ, as well as the last batch of wooden nickels from the world of Rome West, which were exclusive promo items at SDCC 2018. There will also be a CGC witness on hand for those interested in submitting for professional grading. I hope to see you there! For more information: Facebook.com/YesteryearComics
