Ehmm Theory continues as Gabriel and Mr. Whispers discover the true connection they share with the mysterious Alyona. One step closer to Gabe's father, the three encounter the top-secret super-team known only as G.O.D.D. and fight for their lives against a cybernetic crab. What? Yes. Craborg is coming!
Is that a giant cybercrab on the cover? Why yes, it is! And why not, in this crazy world we have already had midget zombie clowns, talking kittens, divine intervention, and that was just issue #1 (review). Issue #2 starts right where the first one left off. Our ghostly duo, Gabriel and Mr. Whispers are on a road trip with the elderly Russian lady, Alyna. She is telling Gabriel how she knew his father and a mysterious occurrence at the South Pole. Unfortunately we don’t get any more information because Craborg attacks. Gabe and Alyna get some help from what appears to be a team of “Justice League” rejects calling their selves G.O.D.D. (Guardians of Dimensional Defense). The issue ends with a surprising plot twist that doesn’t look good for our friends.
On the surface Ehmm Theory is a visually fun horror/comedy mix, but it is also going be a complex and intelligent storyline.
You can find Ehmm Theory and other titles from Action Lab Entertainment: Danger Zone on their website. If you aren’t one for hitting up a comic book store, digital comics are a great way to get your geek on and usually at a lesser price.
