    "The series stars the rugged alcoholic Texas spaceman Heath Huston, the supposed last Fear Agent, in a series of fast-paced adventures. The series is notable for its emphasis on action, adventure, horror, and plot twists rather than realism or scientific detail; Remender claims in the first issue that "science fiction has lost its stones" and that Fear Agent is his attempt to fight that trend. Many incidents in the early issues are unexplained until many issues later to reinforce this."

    Three more incoming now. Issues 5-10 contain "short stories" in the final half-dozen pages, I'm splitting those off to post separately, so I'm just posting the story parts for now.

    I really dig the 50s touch to the art and story. It's not overdone retro, but it adds to the feel.

    Seems to be enough interest on the 'Dex! I figured you guys'd like it. It only gets better and, well, more stuff becomes clear. It kind of has a "wtf is going on" pace for a running start before it calms down and explains things.

    31 issues total, 6 in, I'll keep posting as long as there's interest. Need people to get me to the next page, though :P

    Haha, I'm loving this. Swashbuckling 50's sf with a little modernity added for good measure. Never heard of this before, hats off to the OP.
