Marc Michael Jackson revamps “Man from Space” strip for Tapastic

Man From Space

Last week saw the launch (blast-off) of Marc Michael Jackson‘s new Man from Space series on the digital comics platform Tapastic, a service we’ve mentioned before as a great place to read a range of new comics (and which I use myself for the continuing Crucible strip, co-created with Smuzz).

Each Friday Marc plans to add two pages, and kicked off the new series with a fun four page start. Once a chapter, or issue is complete, he’ll then also do a limited print-run of the comics. too.

“It’s a refreshed take on my existing character,” Marc tells us, ” with even more focus on the crazy aspects, giving it a Ren and Stimpey/SpongeBob vibe, with more physical gags and general galactic goofiness!”
