I really enjoyed this story. It had just the right amount of everything in it. Well crafted! Reminded me of the type of story you'd have heard on the Twilight Zone in decades past. Kudos!

I love the cliffhanger ending. It gives just the right balance of hope and despair--it's nearly guaranteed they'll die, but there's always a chance. But most importantly, if those things are out there...we're all hosed.

Thanks. Happy endings are rare in THE BOOK OF LIES. The sequel of them returning to the jump base would be fun, but would be much too large to fit in my anthology webcomic.

Ah, this was great! As others have said, everything about it just works perfectly. I especially like the artist's style and the subtle color scheme. Nice work, you guys!

Loved it. Death in space is something that always tickles me. I checked out the artist and subbed to his DA account. It's interesting how the art is quite different than what he normally does.

I'm always interested in the design elements of the art, (really digging the dude hooked via all the wires) so I'm curious... Do you have an explanation for how the monster would be able to move in zero-G? If not, that's totally cool. Different people who I ask when it comes to monsters in space have different explanations (with the explanation sometimes being 'who cares, it's just neat/scary').

Awesome as usual!

I have some ideas that are hinted at in the script, but there wasn't time to explore them in such a short comic. If I do a sequel (aliens at a jump-base???) then I might go into it more. One of the other fun things would be if you have creatures who are used to living in zero G, how do they react to gravity?

Oh sh.. Why didn't I see this coming?

I guess it's the thing we learn in horror movies - when there's one really nasty dangerous monster, then it's only one. Right?

At least as long as you don't watch the sequels.. ;)
