JAN150955 First Look at PARTS UNKNOWN VOLUME 1 GRAPHIC NOVELMedia Release — Unlike other stories of alien invasions, there is no time to “watch the skies”. They’re already here.

Scalons. Ruthless reptile-like beings that are well versed in the ways of rape, pillage and plunder. When the atmosphere of their home planet went bad and killed the females of their race they knew the males had to branch out and do so quickly before they too were claimed by the toxic air of the planet Scalon.

The planet Earth became their new home. But like any new home it had to be furnished to satisfy their own twisted needs. That meant spreading their evil seed with Earth women to produce a new hybrid race so that they could officially claim Earth as their own.

To do this it meant that Earth women would be captured and taken against their will. Anyone that got in their way would die.

Two members of an elite Chicago crime unit are going to try and make sure this doesn’t happen. Those two are Pendelton Spurr and Maria Lucci. Two recovering alcoholic super cops that could fall off the wagon and under the wheel at any time.

They are the only two things standing between Earth as we know it and a whole new world order.

It’s time to stand up for the good guys.

“Take your favorite Sci-Fi guilty-pleasure movies of all time, mix them into a giant steel kettle full of body parts from every Stallone and Schwartzenegger flick, then add in one terrifying invasion of sexually starved aliens and you get Smith and Gorby’s iconic “Parts Unknown.” Deservedly being collected again, this original and often hilarious series matches wits and action with best of space, sex and sawed-off shotguns Hollywood could ever dream up. It will delight readers and perhaps make them anxiously look to the stars, for generations to come!”

Billy Tucci (SHI, Crusade Fine Arts, DC Comics)
