December 3 1967 an Alien Encounter
52p, b&w with occasional color, audio cd, 7"x11"
Classic alien firsthand account here, with an audio component bonus for the evidence portfolio. I find Jasorka's bursts of rainbow spot color far more weird than the actual abduction tale which is served up in a direct and respectable style. This made me realize that I like my alien encounters more dubious, speculative and sloppy, which is my own problem - and pretty much the opposite of what this comic is trying to do. "December 3, 1967" is a straight-laced approach through and through, delivering reporting in a that's like the outer limits counterpart to Josh Kramer's Cartoon Picayune. -EF
