There is probably nothing a comic book geek likes more than a great teaser line for a new release. Try this one out: Alien Death Spiders!
I love it!
Bad Planet, co-written by actor Thomas Jane (The Punisher) and horror maven Steve Niles (30 Days Of Night, Freaks Of The Heartland), takes the premise of Armageddon and Deep Impact — big thing to hit Earth — and add some real nastiness to it.
When the 300-yard wide object is detected heading for our planet, the scientists involved aren’t too worried. After all, that’s not world-killer size — or is it?
When the meteor takes a left turn, smashes the space station and begins spewing forth mini-vessels, then the panic begins.
What’s inside the vessels? You guessed it: Alien Death Spiders!
Nice art by Lewis Larosa and Tim Bradstreet compliment what looks to be a terrific new sci-fi, horror book.
