The collaboration for Space Vulture began nearly 50 years ago when Gary K. Wolf (creator of Roger Rabbit) and John J. Myers (now an archbishop) discovered a pulp adventure yarn titled Space Hawk. It was the first science fiction either boy had read, leaving an impression that would later translate into Space Vulture. It's an homage to the story that introduced them to ray guns and rockets, and their attempt to evoke nostalgia in those who grew up reading stories like Space Hawk.

From official release/information:

Book Description: After a lifetime of friendship, two small-town boys who grew to have very different lives and careers have teamed up to travel back in time and conquer the universe. Determined to recapture the science fiction of their youth -- not as it was, but as it should have been -- Gary K. Wolf, the creator of Roger Rabbit, and his best friend, John J. Myers, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey, now transport readers to the far reaches of the galaxy. There, the mere mention of the pirate known as Space Vulture strikes fear into every heart. A hardworking colonist's only hope is that the dauntless lawman, Marshal Victor Corsaire, will rocket to the rescue. Come along for the ride and discover all the adventure, suspense, wonder, and fun that Wolf and Myers first found in science fiction fifty years ago, and now share with everyone in this rollicking tale of the spaceways.
