Cover: Chris Burnham, Nathan Fairbairn

 

Characters: Nameless, Darius

Synopsis – Morrison described the story in an interview with EW

“Nameless is my first collaboration with Chris Burnham since we wrapped up our run on Batman and it’s our first no-holds barred horror comic—a disturbing anti-human voyage to the hopeless outer limits of cosmic nihilism and cruelty, in the company of six doomed astronauts on a mission to save our planet from an approaching asteroid. Needless to say, they get far more than they bargained for.“
