It's finally here!

-When an alien creature lands on the outskirts of Sharon and Ace's hometown it quickly becomes a tourist attraction, things fall apart fast and it needs to be dealt with even faster. Thing's aren't gonna be as easy as running and gunning like saving Sharon from Flats' was though... It's gonna take some tricks, and a lot of luck to solve this one without exposing their cover and identity of the crew to the town and humanity at large.-

This is gonna have a weekly upload schedule, every update will be Friday or Saturday! This is gonna be fun~ :star:v:star:

I knew a man with tastes as refined as yours would not only love this cover but be able to cite the inspirations as well and you dd not disappoint! THANK YOU!!! There is some The Day the Earth Stood Still in there as well with the Flatwoods in place of Gort! But you pretty much listed that with the Forbidden Planet. XD Fifties posters told us our problems weren't giant apes stealing our women anymore but aliens and robots.

I was expecting Episode 5 to feature the Angore Empire but I guess you plan to feature them much later in the series. This is still going to be a really interesting read nonetheless.

The cover art has a strong 1950s-60s alien invasion movie poster vibe to it and I quite like it!

Oh man I'm sorry to disappoint but the Angore will not appear for quite some time, they are kind of a big deal and take up multiple episodes once their arc begins haha! There are three major arcs in the series that are planned, thankfully, the Angore are the first of the three. I know how hard it is, cause I just want Angia in my life so much already- *shot*

I hope you enjoy Episode 5 regardless!!! I'm glad my intention was clear XD I was evoking lots of actual posters such as The Day the Earth Stood Still! I'm a sucker for the era of movies and grew up on them so it was a perfect opportunity to finally use that love for something.

Aaaaah thank you thank you and THANK YOU AGAIN haha I'm so happy you like her! I honestly think she could potentially be my favorite out of all the Chibis I've made so far? There's like 75 of them last I counted so that's quite a statement XD I guess it's thanks to either your designing or your color choices or both whatever it is she always looks great! akldmlas

Yanno I wanted to ask! I actually had a cute idea for a crossover drawing with her and Alfonzo and one of my characters recently would you be ok with me drawing that sometime?? XoX

Thank you so much! XD I'm glad people got what I was going for, some of my all-time favorite pieces of art honestly hail from 50s sci-fi posters. I tried to go for something like Day the Earth Stood Still with this one.

Goodness, the cover for this one came out incredible. Like an old school sci-fi movie poster~
It's also giving me some Partners in Time vibes and that just makes me even more excited. :D

Gotta agree with Coonstito there as well. The Flatswoods Alien/Monster needs more love~

Thanks a lot! I really tried to challenge myself and experiment more with the lighting on this and the three cover remakes, and I really like how it turned out. I appreciate it!

It's starting... It's started. IT'S HERE!!!

Thank you so much dude!!! I'm so glad the Isotex is finally here, he's one of the oldest species and this story is one of the oldest I ever created for the series so it really shows just how long you've been following me knowing he's one of your favs, it makes me so happy! Hope you love the comic!~
