    An entertaining done in one adventure, where Ty Templeton has a lot of fun playing with a couple fun ideas from DC Silver Age. I've always been a sucker for stories involving the face hugging Starro aliens, and nothing beats a walking, talking ape. However, what really sells this story is that its lead character isn't a cookie cutter solider boy, as while I've seen war movies where we encounter the medic who refuses to pick up a gun as killing is against his religious beliefs, I rather enjoyed the way that our hero sought to get around this little stumbling block to a career in the military by signing up to a division where they would be called upon to deal entirely with alien invaders. The action keeps things moving along rather nicely, and the plot twist in the final pages does a pretty good job of resolving what looked to be a seemingly helpless situation. Plus, there's also a pretty solid mystery introduced, as our hero encounters an alien that he's been having nightmares about. Read Full Review
