Wilson, Jeff – Sap #5
OK, right off the bat it should be obvoius that this series has a pretty hefty collection of characters. Mostly slackers of some kind of another and a few different species of aliens. The story here is that there are aliens growing underground, causing massive earthquakes all over the place, and it’s only going to get worse. The earth is doomed, in other words. Meanwhile there’s a hallucinogenic substance that comes from the alien underground that making the rounds through the group of friends and the aliens are trying to remain undiscovered. I’m still only scratching the surface of what’s going on here, as there’s quite a backstory on the first page (always a good idea, especially when there hasn’t been an issue of this for 4 years or so), but I’m curious to see what I missed, and what happens next. In other words, a job well done. The art and the writing are both great, so here’s hoping #6 comes out before the next presidential election. It’s only $2 for a pretty big book, send the man an e-mail at email@example.com.
