The Devastorm 5 is an alien warship whose prime directive is to seek out planets to invade and conquer in tribute to the almighty Alien Queen. The only problem is that the crew of the Devastorm 5 is the worst in the fleet. Despite being the losers of the alien army, Pilot Minky still considers himself the best pilot in the galaxy. Rounding out the crew is sober Science Officer Illy, cranky Commander Hoytch, silly Security Officer Von and the slimy Political Liaison Eggy, they are a dysfunctional crew to say the least. After being chided by other more successful members of the Queen’s Alien Army, Minky vows to conquer EARTH once and for all. And he does! But Minky doesn’t realize that he’s only captured an amusement park called Fun Fun Fun World. The only human to witness the invasion is Javi Camacho, the son of the park’s lead engineer. Javi is an avid consumer of conspiracy theories and paranormal activities, so the presence of aliens only confirms his suspicions. Javi has been on the hunt for the reclusive creator of Fun Fun Fun World, famed animator Franklyn Funger- who Javi suspects is still alive and hiding in the park somewhere.
After posing as the park’s colorful mascot characters, the crew sends the Queen Earth’s most prized treasure- the Churro. Jealous of Minky’s success, Eggy plots a coup with Franklyn Funger. Eggy’s shenanigans trigger the emergency signal back to the mother ship and reveal to the Queen that Earth hasn’t been taken after all. The Queen’s most evil warrior, Vang, heads to Earth to blow it up because if she can’t have it then no one can! Eggy and Minky mend their rift and must band together with Javi and Funger to save the park and save the world!
This was such a fun little adventure! In this story we follow a crew of misfits as they are doing everything they can to conquer a planet and redeem themselves as well as learn to work together. As with any group of aliens (or people) there are growing pains, hurt feelings and bad decisions. Add to that a precocious child who just wants an amusement part to find it’s old magic again and you have a roller coaster ride of mishaps and shenanigans.
The art style and coloring are perfect for not only the subject but also the targeted age range of the story. The colors are super vibrant and bring out that over the top, super fun motif!
