Lost Without You

"We're looking at the same sun but from the other side." -Michael Oakley, CaliforniaLost And Silvermane

Neon galaxy, sector 1983; date unknown. An alien wakes up in a corner of the universe with severe amnesia: he can't remember his origins, his purpose, nor destination. There's only one clue: a female apparition only he can see, begging to come find her.
With the self appointed name Lost, our protagonist soars the deep space hopping from planet to planet in search of her beautiful and mysterious SilverMane. He'll meet friends and foes, like the young troublemaker Glimmer and Flatline, a space-soldier with his own agenda; piece by piece Lost will discover more details of his past... some of which will be hard to accept.

Lost Without You is a scifi retrowave comicbook saga by authors M.Lock (story, pencils, inks) and Valyce Negative (colours, after effects). It's a love letter to the 1980s we all remember with its movies, adventures, visuals and colours; filled with nostalgic influences, the pages of its volumes display a story in typical retrowave fashion, mixing balloons and VHS effects, a real saturday morning cartoon in paper form.
Dive into the adventures of Lost and friends in a journey that will take you... to the end of the universe!
