Spaceman Jax Comics Coming Soon!
Comic-Con got a sneak peek of another jewel.
Comic-Con is always a lot of fun: big stars, great swag and aisles and aisles full of amazing collectibles that turn you into a kid again. But maybe one of the best things about Comic-Con is getting an early sneak peek at exciting things to come. So Curio & Co. was very excited to share a soon-to-be-released treasure from the vault with visitors to Comic-Con.
In October of this year, we’ll be officially releasing 1000 copies of the first issue of Spaceman Jax comics, Spaceman Jax – Through the Mantagon Minefield. But if you just can’t wait that long and you’re heading to Comic-Con, you can get your hands on them before anyone else.

This one is 48 pages of galactic hijinks along with the original ads and the charming letters to Spaceman Jax section. I wonder where those kids are today?
You can pre-order the comic online, but you’ll still have to wait to get it. But once you do, you’ll want to sit down right then and there and read it right away!
