The preview consists of the first five, full-colored pages of the comic.
The publisher gave this description of the series:
“In this brand-new Captain Harlock adventure, planet Earth is threatened by an upcoming invasion by the Sylvidres and despite being banished as a pirate, Captain Harlock won’t give up trying to save the world.
