Radio Spaceman #2. Mission to Numa 4– Mike Mignola Artist: Greg Hinkle Letterer: Clem Robins Colorist: Dave Stewart Cover Artist: Mike Mignola, Dave Stewart

A ship has crashed and landed on a mysterious planet: Numa 4. Some of the surviving crew are missing, and the mysterious hero Radio Spaceman is called to investigate.

Ula Azee, the kidnapped archeologist from space, will turn out to have some hidden depths, making them an unexpected pair for space adventures. A ghost and a…

It is much better if you find out for yourself.
