our pal, bob almond, sent over this brief and succinct review--
Perhapanauts #4 (Image Comics)
By Todd Dezago, Craig Rousseau & Jason Armstrong
The Perhaps return home to Bedlam to find the base under an emergency evacutation in light of the recent invasion. But the people pulling the strings may not exactly have the project's best interesting at heart. Choopie has to deal with his Gremlin subjects, and Peter's emotions come back to haunt him. The bizarre stuff keeps coming with this book -- it's weird, it's crazy, and it's so much fun that it rises to the top of the read pile every week it comes out. Dezago and Rosseau have shaped a really weird world with really interesting, believable characters. If you haven't read this book yet, you're missing out on something exceptionally cool.
Rating: 4.5/5 --Blake M. Petit
