Image Comics brings you a bizarre sci-fi comic with all the shits and giggles going on from outer space in Grip of the Kombinat, the graphic novel.

From all the sci-fi comics that I read, this one makes it more like Darth Vader’s castle where all the weird stuff going on there. The first thing when I read this comic, I didn’t think that this is an Image Comic material, because the scenes are very cartoony, and almost transforms into a Japanese manga on a weekly publishing company. The comic is created by Simon Roy and Damon Gentry. Simon is a Canadian comic book writer and artist who has worked on the series along with Brandom Graham’s relaunch of Extreme Studio’s Prophet. He didn’t just publish his other comics for some other comic industry, but he also self-published his work as a webcomic. However, he and Damon worked on this comic that they set up for Kickstarter to have support for this project. But I must confess, this comic will become so weird, to begin with.

Take this front over for example this concept almost resembles one of the posters from the Star Wars movies. However, the characters that are shown in the story are very weird. One of them shows a guy wearing an X helmet with a mustache who looks pissed, and there are some robots who wear a wig on its head and placed some acronym that is PUK. That’s right “PUK” which is “Peerless Universal Kombinat” if you’re not disgusted. And there is some other weird stuff going on with this comic and I could not stop laughing with so much idiotic comedy that this comic brings in.

I’m not gonna tell the details of the story because there’s not much to tell because I can totally relate to all of this in everyday life, but the only thing that I can tell you is that this sci-fi comic would make any reader laugh their heads off when they discover the most vulgarises book that ever read, with all the disgusting acronyms like PUK, XIT or FUK, cringy robots and LGBT+ innuendos going on. But man where do they get all this stuff, I can relate to almost everything on this comic from my webcomic because this almost looks like the best meme of the year. This is too much sauce to bear on this comic. But at the end of the day, after I read this comic, I can’t think enough about how much idiocy this piece of work that the authors came up with. I don’t know what’s going on but I can’t stop laughing.
