Former Captain Comet investigates “Mystery in Space”
Mystery in Space 1-8 (2006-7)
The Weird 1-4 (1988)
The interweaving narratives of the revived Captain Comet (now going by just “Comet”) and interdimensional former energy being The Weird come together over the course of the eight-issue story as writer Jim Starlin presents a tale worthy of the title “Mystery in Space.” Shane Davis provides the art for the Comet story, and Starlin draws the Weird section. Ron Lim — who worked with Starlin before, notably filling in for George Perez on the “Infinity Gauntlet” — fills in on the later issues. Captain Comet’s talking canine sidekick, Tyrone, is introduced in this series, as is potential love interest Eye. The revived Comet as sort of a spacefaring Sam Spade investigating his own death makes this a recommended storyline.
The story is set on Hardcore Station, sort of a Babylon 5 type place with a mix of corporate executives and religious zealots running the show. Comet finds himself drawn into a plot by the Eternal Light Corporation to expand their power, using Comet and the Weird as their puppets, in different ways.
