The Griff: A Graphic Novel (Paperback)
Not currently in the store – Usually ships in 1-5 days
Outrageously funny New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore and award-winning screenwriter-director Ian Corson team up for a wacky and entertaining graphic tale of alien invasion and a motley crew of Earthlings trying to stay alive and, oh, yeah, save humankind.
The mayhem begins when an ancient alien beacon is unwittingly activated, summoning behemoth spaceships from the far reaches of the galaxy. Hovering in Earths atmosphere, they release a biblical stream of pods that transform into minivan-size, people-eating, flying lizardy things that look like mythological griffins. Destroying communications, emergency, and military infrastructure, they systematically kill everyone on the planet. Well, almost everyone.
A pesky trio of New Yorkers isnt about to roll out the red carpetor roll over and diefor these unwelcome intergalactic marauders. Unlikely heroes Mo, a snarky, Gothy game-goddess; Steve, a skateboard-punk schwag whore; and Curt, the obligatory buff commando expert in weaponry (and a genius with cosmetics), are going to take it to the aliensand Florida is where the fight is. Armed with M-16s, a BFG (big f**king gun), and a surplus of guts, theyll battle their way from the Big Apple to Orlando, where a downed spacecraft is the most awesome new attraction.
And in the Sunshine State another pair of courageous (and pretty damn lucky) humans who have outwitted the toothy Überlizards await: Liz, a babelicious killer whale trainer at Ocean World, and Oscar, a chain-smoking middle-aged professional squirrel (seriouslyhes paid to wear that squirrel costume).
Once united, the intrepid warriors will attempt to infiltrate the alien spacecraft, defeat the spacer invaders, and save (whats left) of the worldand, if Steve plays his cards right, begin the fun of repopulating Earth all over again.
