Spectrum (the comic book) captures everything there was to love about Tudyk’s and Fillion’s previous work in a brand-new story: a tight-knit crew of fascinating characters in a spacecraft that’s both a vehicle and a home, a dashing shoot-from-the-hip captain, a wisecracking clutch pilot, a powerful female who holds the key to various salvations and destructions, and a crisp page-turning plot that starts exactly where things get interesting. As one would expect from the talent behind this, Spectrum makes you care deeply about these characters within a few panels and hints at a massive unexplored new world to unfold in issues to come.

On May 7, as part of the 15th Free Comic Book Day extravaganza, Spectrum debuts with a free #0 issue. It’s not a prologue or a sampler or a back-issue reprint, but the real first issue of a monthly mini-series. Brought to life by writers Tudyk and PJ Haarsma (Con Man, Rings of Orbis), veteran editor Shannon Eric Denton, and artist Sarah Stone (Transformers: Windblade), Spectrum #0 lets you in on the ground floor of a new favorite franchise, and it doesn’t cost a dime.
