This story is my obvious ode to Alien and similar tales of horrifying creatures in deep space. Horror is a difficult genre to tackle in comics. So much of horror depends on the terrifying anticipation of what lurks in the next reel, and it’s difficult to reproduce that feeling in a format that shows you ten panels as a time. It’s a tough genre. So naturally, I wanted to try it out.
Going in, I knew that Borch Penya had a clean, elegant and downright beautiful art style. But it turns out he also has an incredible understanding of the genre, and throughout the story, his art subtly foreshadows the end. Every time I look at these pages, I discover something new and awesome.
