Awry Shares The Dangers Of Space & The Importance Of Family

by James Ferguson

Action Lab: Danger Zone has launched Awry, its next digital-first title. Written by Wes Locher and illustrated by Graeham Jarvis, Awry is an intergalactic story following a captain everyone hates and a nervous crew. It’s taken the Phyllos 10 years to reach the black hole Formax-C and during that team, the crew of four has grown to loathe one another. When things go awry, the astronauts must overcome their differences and work as a team if they hope to survive an alien world and make it home.

Writer Wes Locher says:

Awry is bringing something fun to the sci-fi genre. Instead of heavily-armed soldiers landing on an alien world and saving the day with bullets and explosives, we’re giving you a crew armed only with their wits. That includes a captain that every one hates, and astronauts who talk too much when they get nervous. It’s going to be a wild ride.

Awry is currently available on ComiXology in four single issues. A collected edition is scheduled for release on October 16th, 2019.

Locher continued:

The core idea of Awry is that when the chips are down, you see someone’s true character. Awry takes familiar sci-fi tropes but uses them to tell an intimate story about loneliness, desire, and the ideas of family, digging into those moments where the people you don’t get along with can turn out to be the greatest allies imaginable. It’s like they say: you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose.
