This issue is a sex special. Everyone has sex all the time and that’s all they can think of. Poor Oliver. Will he ever be spared of all these adults with uncontrollable hormones?

This story follows the crew from the coalition of planets that went back home to Talescria to report on the Viltrumite survivors that have hidden on Earth. Besides the fact that many of the characters have a lot of sex, what I remember the best from this story is how Oliver, who’s skin is inexplicably no longer purple, feels that Earth is a backwater world where people are closed-minded as opposed to Talescria where aliens from all over the universe live in peace and without racism. Sometimes it’s the most innocent lines that make a comic book special. There was another interesting line about how Allen the Alien cannot reproduce with his girlfriend, because their genetics are not compatible.

Cory Walker is back this issue and I have to say that I prefer when Ryan Ottley draws this series. The characters still look very much the same though, but Ottley’s work is more lively and the faces more interesting to look at.

Rating: 8/10
