Synopsis: Adam and Eve variation. Guy with voluptuous girl hijack spaceship. Girl don’t want, brokes by mistake navigation system and they end up to alien solarsystem. Immediately after landing (for good) on a planet guy shoots a well hunged alien. Alien does not die but gives him a revenge.
Comment: Story has a quite odd, primitively simple colors, like comic was made in B&W and (somebody else?) made it in colors. Not Corbenish colors at all. Story is very violent, one of Corben’s darkest, I have to say. There is ugly brutal violence in all frames. It’s so easy to dislike this dark story. There is lots of beautiful face close-ups on every page. Girl is all the time vulgarly voluptuous. Story has strong intensity on first half (husband molesting wife).
