It’s 1961. The Soviets have already put a dog in space. Now the American’s are training an elite group of chimpanzees to be the first Americans in space.
Taking a cue from The Right Stuff, we follow chimp-astronaut Ham and his trainer as they compete for banana pellets, train for the dangerous big launch and form a close bond. Winner of the 2006 Xeric award for independently published comics, First in Space is an entertaining adventure for all ages.
First in Space is currently available.
