The Black Asteroid is a teen-age coming of age graphic novel. Marty Castillo leaves the Moon in his home brew farm space ship with this wife, Amy, their sixteen year old son, Rusty, and their cow to go to the Black Asteroid looking for diamonds.
Rusty was born and brought up in the space ship. He has never seen a live sixteen year old girl. On the way to the Black Asteroid they rescue Angie, a sixteen year old Apache girl, from a defunct space ship. They battle space pirates, and destroy the pirate ship, but rescue one pirate. The story is built around the relationships that develop between Angie, Rusty, and the pirate. They reach the Black Asteroid and retrieve the diamonds. In the process, the pirate sacrifices his life to save Rusty.
