The penultimate issue of Spaceman was, to me at least, the most overtly critical of modern society and reality TV of all of them so far. Azzarello doesn’t hold back here with the callousness of the TV producers, it’s very scathing. I’m not sure how I feel about it, I know science fiction is supposed to be a mirror to our modern world and blah de blah, but it is very on the nose. The more interesting stuff to me here were the scenes with Orson and Carter, the dialogue between them was very strong, and what they were discussing was very interesting, such as the similar natures of their jobs, and their own unique positions as Spacemen. Risso’s art was fantastic as usual, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing just how Azz will tie everything together, both in the present with Tara, and also the flashbacks, where I’m still adamant that Orson killed Ottershaw.
