Space Invaders: they move mindlessly. In formation, they slowly attack, heading towards earth with a terrifying, robotic certainty. But what happened before these invaders were selected to wage war on humanity? What happened then? In this brilliant comic, we get to see the Space Invader origin story — watch as he is born, grows up, falls in love, has his heart broken and then — tragically — is drafted to war!
The whole thing is just brilliant. Right through the heartbreaking end.
The Invader [Ehud Lavski]
