Girls is a series by Jonathan and Joshua Luna that explores what happens when naked egg- laying women terrorize a small town. No, really. This isn't something I'd normally pick up because- well, the cover- I mean really, but the fact that Jonathan Luna is the artist grabbed my eye. I really liked his work on Alex and Ada which is a favorite comic series of mine, so I thought I'd give this a chance, especially since it's free on ComiXology Unlimited at the moment. The whole 24 issue series is free on Unlimited in fact. And I was pleasantly surprised. It's worth checking out as a science fiction/ horror comic that delves into gender roles, small town life, and other such weirdness.
Ethan is having trouble in his relationships. His relationship with his ex- girlfriend Taylor is a mess and when some innocent flirting goes awry he gets frustrated and makes an ass of himself in the local bar. He gets thrown out and while driving home he almost runs over a naked girl in the road. Why is she there, and why is she naked? Who knows? He certainly doesn't, but she's injured and some local rednecks are after her so he takes her to get help. That's pretty much the gist of issue one. Oh, and Ethan may or may not be responsible for what's happening- or what will happen in later issues. It's all very mysterious and I could totally see this as an awesome streaming binge.
Anyway I'll be exploring each issue just because this series is out there.
I had to laugh when I read the description of this. It does sound out there. But now I'm curious to know what exactly is happening!ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, I did not see that coming: egg-laying women terrorizing a small town. Sounds... fun! :))ReplyDelete
Just when you think you've seen/read it all, haha!ReplyDelete
Ooh, I liked Girls, though I never got to finish the full run. I read the issues as they were coming out and only got about a dozen in before I stopped because the story stalled, but I remember the first collected arc was good!ReplyDelete

Sounds interesting. 😯ReplyDelete
This sounds like an intriguing premise for the series and I love the cover artwork :-)ReplyDelete
I don't think this is something I would usually pick up either but I am so curious to see what you are going to make of this strange premise... I'll follow your journey!ReplyDelete
