Stellar follows the title character, who was taken as a child and transformed into a weapon intended to bring an end to an intergalactic war. She accomplished that goal, but at great cost to herself and the galaxy. Now a bounty hunter, Stellar moves from world to world, in search of redemption. However, there are other weapons loose in the galaxy who can't moved past the war.

“It’s a science fiction story about a woman, part of a group of super-humans, who must defend humanity from the rest of her kind,” Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead and Invincible, explained in 2009, ahead of Stellar's Pilot Season debut. “It’s going to be cool science fiction space action, with all kinds of monsters and spaceships and stuff."

Skybound and Image promise the series will "transport you to another dimension, filled with crashed spaceships, fast-talking aliens, and ageless wonders."

Stellar, by Joseph Keatinge and Bret Blevins, debuts June 13 from Skybound Entertainment and Image Comics.
