Paul Scheer’s First Comic Book ‘Aliens vs. Parker’ Is Out Today

By

Paul Scheer, of NTSF, The League, and Human Giant fame, wrote his first comic book, and it’s out today. Called Aliens vs. Parker, Scheer co-authored the four issue comic miniseries with Nick Giovannetti, a comedy writer who’s worked for MTV and Adult Swim. Aliens vs. Parker is a comedic sci-fi story that follows a group of slacker video game players, working for a space delivery service, who have to put their video games away to fight for their lives on a mysterious planet. You can pick up the first issue of the digital comic for $3.99 on Comixology right now. Scheer originally conceived of the story as a movie that would have been a humorous take on Alien, but he “quickly realized that Hollywood isn’t really financing $120 million comedies.” I’m assuming the comic book cost less to make than that.
