Canopus is a psychological sci-fi written and illustrated by Dave Chisholm that, within its tense narrative of an astronaut marooned, explores themes of resentment, forgiveness, memory, and identity.
Helen wakes up marooned on a lifeless alien planet 300 light years from Earth with no memories beyond a hazy sense of extinction-level urgency to return to Earth. Joined by Arther, her strange robot companion, she explores the planet to find materials necessary to repair her ship.
However, circumstances are not as straightforward as they seem. Along the way, Helen’s most painful memories return as monstrous manifestations hell-bent on her destruction.
In Canopus, author/illustrator Dave Chisholm pushes the storytelling language of the comics medium to stunning new places while retaining its psychological sci-fi beating heart, finding the sweet spot for both fans of formalist graphic novels (Asterios Polyp, Rusty Brown) and fans of trippy, pulpy sci-fi (Annihilation, Black Science, Descender).
