The first in a hotly anticipated new graphic novel series
DS-5, a biologically-enhanced law enforcement marshal, is due to be decommissioned after decadesÂ in deep space. He returns to a solar system finally rising out of a devastating climate war following theÂ discovery of a miraculous new energy source: Titan Green. His pod crashes on Titan following aÂ mysterious explosion, and DS-5 deploys for his final mission: an investigation into mass murder thatÂ becomes entwined with a geologist’s quest for herÂ missing father. But as DS-5’s ageing tech begins toÂ fail, human faculties and memories resurface, forcing him to confront the dark provenance of hisÂ recruitment.
Jed Mercurio and Prasanna Puwanarajah have taken the Conspiracy Thriller and the Western andÂ sent them into orbit. Stunningly illustrated by Coke Navarro, Sleeper is a riveting work of imagination.
