Starro Zaggaro

"Starro Zagarro is an amazing book".  - Dave Sim, author of CEREBUS 

Astronaut Starro Zagarro finds himself far from home
with his visor cracked and two seconds left to live. He ventures into his subconscious to draw those seconds out forever, but for every distraction he creates, Death has a countermove.
