TRESPASSER #4

“Everything Ends!”
Writer: Justin M. Ryan
Artist: Kristian Rossi

Maria is really sick and the father is gravely concerned. They have a touching moment the father and daughter. Later while the father is drinking there is a knock at the door. Outside are a whole bunch of aliens. The father pleads with them to save his daughter’s life. All the aliens are grim faced but go into the house and take Maria. They then knock out the father. Later Maria wakes up in a hospital. She was found wandering around and brought to a military compound with no memory of what happened. Years later a teenage Maria comes back home to her father. She has a dog with one eye named Gargoyle. They have a happy reunion.

So ends this interesting story of aliens after the apocalypse. It was a dark story but ending with a very happy ending. I hope they continue to explore this world with future issues. There are so many questions left unanswered. Like what was this apocalyptic catastrophe. The military complex at the end has alien bodies hanging from the walls and heads mounted on pikes. Obviously there is some conflict with the aliens. We never find out what that is or what part the aliens played in it. Why are they here? Also Maria has an alien implant behind her ear. So many unanswered questions that could make for great stories in the future. I highly recommend that you try out this title.

TRESPASSER #3

“To Err is Human, To Forgive…Alien!”
Writer: Justin M. Ryan
Artist: Kristian Rossi

The daughter Maria is quick to figure out what her dad fed her. It causes a lot of tension with her father. The father takes her hunting with him. He doesn’t want to leave her alone. They manage to bag a bear but its contaminated and no good. Coming home they find their dog Belle is back. Only she has a strange implant in her head. When its touched she gets violent. So the dad pulls it out and this kills Belle. Maria is all upset and reveals she too has developed blisters. She runs out and collapses to throw up. Standing next to her is an alien. The father confronts the alien but has more worries as it looks like Maria is dying.

So the story is going to a really dark place. Maria knows what her dad did and her reaction is what I think any of us would react. The aliens did something to their dog and she dies. Finally it looks like Maria is not doing any good which ends on a great cliffhanger. The artwork is dark and rainy which contributes to the dark mood of the story. Enjoying this unique story.

TRESPASSER #2

“Buried Secrets”
Writer: Justin M. Ryan
Artist: Kristian Rossi

The father is burying the alien’s suit and gun in the yard. So after that he goes back with his daughter and they get on with life as best they can. The father is starting to develop blisters all over his body. One night Belle the dog starts barking. The daughter sees an alien outside. This gets the father to go out while the daughter locks herself in her bedroom. The dog runs off and disappears. The daughter sees the alien outside her window. She runs outside and finds her father passed out. She helps him into the house and into bed. The father gives her the shotgun and passes out. The daughter hears someone inside and shoots through the door. This wakes the father and both go to the living room. On the floor is the bloody alien suit over some strange crop circle type hieroglyphics.

So the second issue continues the dark moodiness that was established in the first issue. At first it seems everything will go OK. The two talk about how the father met the daughter’s mother. But the strange blisters that the father is developing and the weakness might hint that alien is not a good food to eat. It seems the alien had a friend and he is playing games with the two. This issue does a good job of building up tension and mystery.

TRESPASSER #1

“Fatal Fallout!”
Writer: Justin M. Ryan
Artist: Kristian Rossi

A man is living with his daughter Maria and their dog Belle out in the country. Only this is after some nuclear war and civilization is gone. Now the man goes hunting for food every day desperate to feed his daughter. He doesn’t have much luck in bagging game that isn’t contaminated. While checking his traps he discovers a grey alien wandered into his bear trap. After disarming it he takes it back home and patches his wound. Later he tries out the weapon and it is a powerful ray gun. At night he has a conversation with the alien. The alien can’t speak English but the man is just happy to have someone to talk to and we get how he misses the old world. He then grabs a machete and apologizes to the alien. Next morning his daughter wakes up to her father cooking a horrible smelling stew. The father is vague on the source for the stew. He also says the alien got better and went away. Outside is a bloody machete imbedded in a tree stump.

So a new series from Alterna. I am starting to really enjoy comics from this new company. Printed on newsprint and a cheap price they are like buying comics was thirty years ago. So this series has a dark and moody atmosphere. The man and his daughter are very lovable characters and you really feel for them. It doesn’t have to show us the act to know that this desperate father is feeding the alien to his daughter. You wonder about an alien that can get caught so easily. Still this is a very unique idea for a story and I look forward to find out where its going.
