Orbiter is a graphic novel by Warren Ellis and Colleen Doran, published in 2003 by DC Comics under their Vertigo imprint.

It is a hard science fiction story set in the early 21st Century about a team of specialists employed to understand the mysterious reappearance of the space shuttle Venture. The shuttle crashed back to Earth after disappearing ten years earlier with its crew missing, save for the catatonic pilot, and alien technology on board.

Ellis and Doran are both space flight enthusiasts and dedicated Orbiter to the “lives, memories and legacies” of the astronauts who died in the 2003 Columbia disaster. Warren Ellis received an Eisner Award nomination as Best Writer for his 2004 works including Orbiter
