Ursula Stormholder was raised by pirates with a chip on her shoulder the size of Uranus, but for the right price, she just may save the universe. And in Into the Suck, writer Keith Thomas, artist CB Zane, colorist Oracle and letterer Kel Nuttel are giving her plenty of adventures to delve into. The story is a six issue miniseries that begins with her taking on a job to pick up and deliver a seemingly normal human (if a heavy set drunken frat boy can be considered normal) to her broker. When she returns with her prize, she finds her broker murdered and must now play a cosmic game of cat and mouse with her paycheck named Armando in tow as she seeks to discover who originally brokered the deal so that she can get paid.
Ursula Stormholder is the complete package: Beauty and the Beast. The daughter of the most feared pirate in space, she makes her living as a privateer. Pick up, delivery, and the occasional kidnapping are among the list of services she offers. While trying to make a living, she is also making a reputation for herself outside of her father’s shadow. It’s not necessarily a good one. In the process she is caught up in her love/hate relationship with her father, chased by the Royal Fleet and ultimately forced to lead a rescue, thwart a villainous foe bent of universal domination and save the galaxy… much like her father did years ago when he was a hero, before this area was the cold, dark, war ravaged place they call The Suck.
