You may be looking for the DC Comic book titled "Homeworld".

The word "Homeworld" refers to the planet, or in some cases moon, from which a certain species originates. For example, Earth is the homeworld of the Human and Voth species, Andoria is the homeworld of the Andorians and the Aenar, and Qo'noS is the homeworld of the Klingon species. (Star Trek: The Original Series; VOY: "Distant Origin"; ENT: "The Aenar"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In some cases more than one intelligent species originates from the same planet. Examples of this are Trill (which has the sentient humanoid hosts species as well as the worm-like symbionts) and Xindus (home to five extant species of sentient beings, one extinct). (DS9: "Equilibrium"; ENT: "The Shipment", "Azati Prime")

In order for a celestial body to be a homeworld, it does not have to be the site where a species evolved, but where the cultural and social origin of the certain species lies, as is the case with the Romulans, who actually evolved on the planet Vulcan but moved to their current homeworld Romulus thousands of years ago. (TOS: "Return to Tomorrow")
