This was an
awful comic.  Things occur in this comic that do not
make sense.  For example, GL and Plas go to a underworld bar in
“disguise” to discover information regarding an alien plot.  The problem
is that their disguises are not believable in the slightest.  Plas wears a striped zoot suit and calls himself “Stripes”, while GL wears a
trench coat with his mask on under his fidora.  I mean, this
is the level of writing we’re dealing with.  The aliens turn out to look a lot like duck people, and things get sillier from there.  And, not in a good way.  There are moments that you cannot follow the action, not that any of it makes a whole lot of sense anyway.  I’ll be honest, I stopped reading
about half way through and skimmed the rest.  On the bright side, the dialog wasn’t terrible and the characterizations were pretty spot on, though both GL and Plas got annoying after a while.

The art did not help things.  The layouts were ok, though they could have been better.  I think there were some points were Plas was attempting to look like famous people, but I don’t think I recognized one, except maybe Dracula.  Maybe.

Anyway, this was a HUGE waste of money.   It’s not Sentry Fallen Sun or Rise of Arsenal #3 bad, but it’s still a clunker.
