Tripper, the hard-traveling hero of the highways, has always counted on his alien compass to point him to where he needed to be.
As The Alternates continue to hunt for the source of the reality-warping drug known as Prestige, Tripper discovers he may have accidentally just led his support group of heroes to the slaughter.
As the mystery of what happened in The Ledge deepens so does the danger when the powerful super being The Searcher (from Minor Threats vol. 1!) comes a callin’!
Co-written by Hack/Slash’s Tim Seeley and featuring artwork by Christopher Mitten (Hellboy) and Tess Fowler (Kid Lobotomy).
Un Cómic MásOswalt, Blum and Seeley continue to deliver a penultimate installment full of shocking revelations. It's an art with layers of textures that provide different tones for different sequences, where body language adds meaning to the dialogues and elevates the plot.
Nerd InitiativeI giggled, I gasped, and I “oohed” at the art. This story continues to make me laugh aloud while enjoying and appreciating the actual intense storyline. We get mystery, humanizing of superheroes (good and bad), and laugh aloud comedy. It’s everything you could want in a comic book. My only concern is that it will be wrapping up next month. However, the fact this is a spinoff of Minor Threats, gives me hope that this universe is not over, as I definitely need more.
AIPTThis great book is about so much more than one idea (even as that idea is a really multifaceted and nuanced idea that speaks to central tenets of the human experience). But whatever it’s about for you as an individual reader, it will grab you by the heart and shake and toss you about so that you explore your own experiences and those times you’ve been unable to make heads or tails of life itself. The Alternates remains an experience like few others, and it comes to change our hearts and brains with its big ideas and lethal efficiency.
