The solar system is full of strange peoples from the Mercuroids to the Plutonians but none so strange as the system within a system, Dyzan, counter-spinning the Earth and unknown to humanity for so long.
That changed in the 1930s with an invasion from space which, against all odds, we won.
Veteran Ace Slamm tries to survive in the chaos after the war, though he's not exactly your most heroic or sympathetic individual. You can't afford to be when the whole universe is out to get you.
A stiff drink, a quick buck, a ray gun by your side and a total lack of scruples mean more than any amount of heroics.
Board Man's Ruin and take to space with Ace Slamm - Space Bastard.
