Media Release — The double-sized debut issue of the new sci-fi-rom-com-dram-actioner from the writer of THE BUNKER and the artist of MY LITTLE PONY—wait, really? Okay. INVASION! Aliens are real. They’re here, they’re mean and they’re standing in judgement over the citizens of Earth. Final countdown. Representing humanity (by some fluke) is your boy Jeff Steinberg. Romantically challenged idiot, video store clerk, constipated, confused, distractible. In other words, the planet is totally doomed. Also, robots!

What the creators have to say about JEFF STEINBERG: CHAMPION OF EARTH
Joshua Hale Fialkov: “Jeff Steinberg: Champion of Earth is about two things—friendship and dick jokes. That’s why Tony Fleecs was the right man for the job. On top of his Magical Friendship bona fides from a career of drawing adorable ponies with things on their butts, Tony is also my best friend. For nearly a decade, we’ve had daily conversations about our lives, loves, wins, losses, and everything in between. If more than a day or two goes by without one, I get antsy to find out what trouble he’s gotten into. I like to think he feels the same. WHY DON’T YOU LOVE ME LIKE I LOVE YOU, TONY?!?”
Tony Fleecs: “I’m real proud of how this comic manages to be very personal and a silly genre mashup at the same time. It’s like the sequential art version of Josh and I hanging out. Lots of laughs. Lots of drama. Some light action.”
