Title: Stray (Homage Comics, 2001, 44 pages)
Creators: Scott Lobdell and Jimmy Palmiotti (writers), Adam Pollina (pencils)
Availability: Out of Print

Repost from the old comm, but it fits the theme.

I confess, I'm a sucker for nearly any variation on the "a girl/boy and her/his dog" story, so this comic was right up my alley.

Short version: She is a wannabe actress. Her dog is possessed by an alien. And this is the kind of cartoony crack that transpires when the dog of a wannabe actress is possessed by an alien.

OK, so the first page does bug me. If you're going to do a close-up on a fake mag, either keep to the cover or take the time to write out the text of the articles. But it gets better (if one ignores a typo here and there).

The rest of the book details Rex's origin and how the two met. Really, the whole thing is just plain fun. I was quite bummed when it didn't get picked up as an ongoing.

This was wonderful. I love Jimmy Palmiotti more and more every day.

Thanks for posting this.

Once again I am saddened that Scott Lobdell doesn't do much in the way of comic work these days.

Well, that was fun. We need more fun action series - serious drama is fine, but it's a bit exasperating when that's all that's available.

Why does the soldier say she was blonde when the wig was clearly red, as confirmed by the protagonist in the second scan?
