Boosterrific Review: Mark Badger is probably the perfect artist for a series about investigating the innermost nightmares of a pliable alien telepath. However, this issue is more questions than answers, clearly only the first chapter of a larger story, making it hard to judge independent of the rest of the story.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
