by Jarrod Jones. Sometimes you just want to take a nap. But what happens when that nap spans the course of 60 years, and you wake up to find that your life has passed you by? Also: your brother has become the dang President of the Galaxy? Oh, and let’s say you’re a dastardly cosmic criminal —what do you do then?

That’s the prediciament set before Chen Andalou, the scrappy anti-protagonist of Astro Hustle. Set in a far-out Seventies spacescape, Astro Hustle will spin yarns about our resident Ne’er-do-well of the Nebulae as he causes all sorts of trouble for his Executive Sibling this March!

In advance of Astro Hustle‘s March 6 release, Dark Horse Comics has supplied DoomRocket the responsibility of letting you, our readers, in on some of the colorful characters that will populate this new cosmic calamity by Jai Nitz, Tom Reilly, Ursula Decay, and Chris Crank!

Readers! Courtesy of Jai Nitz, it is our pleasure to introduce you to the Grand Duchess Lucerne…

Grand Duchess Lucerne- How does it feel to be born to be a bargaining chip?  The Galactic Kingdom of Lucerne was rich in one commodity: daughters.  Their prize daughter Egx was the crown jewel of their children.  Bright, insightful, charismatic, and beautiful, Egx would make a fine queen… somewhere else.  She would be married off to the highest royal bidder, a daughter fit to be the queen of some other empire.  But with her older sister kidnapped and feared dead, Egx must learn to be the queen of her own kingdom, a job she was never trained to do.  Welcome to royalty.

‘Astro Hustle’ #1 enters our galaxy March 6.
