PARTS UNKNOWN Graphic Novel #1 Written by Beau Smith Art by Brad Gorby Onsale March 25th 2015 • 110+ pg, FC, $18.99, limited series. Unlike other stories of alien invasions, there is no time to “watch the skies”. They’re already here. Scalons. Ruthless reptile-like beings that are well versed in the ways of rape, pillage and plunder. When the atmosphere of their home planet went bad and killed the females of their race they knew the males had to branch out and do so quickly before they too were claimed by the toxic air of the planet Scalon. The planet Earth became their new home. But like any new home it had to be furnished to satisfy their own twisted needs. That meant spreading their evil seed with Earth women to produce a new hybrid race so that they could officially claim Earth as their own. To do this it meant that Earth women would be captured and taken against their will. Anyone that got in their way would die. Two members of an elite Chicago crime unit are going to try and make sure this doesn’t happen. Those two are Pendelton Spurr and Maria Lucci. Two recovering alcoholic super cops that could fall off the wagon and under the wheel at any time. They are the only two things standing between Earth as we know it and a whole new world order. It’s time to stand up for the good guys.
