It’s not often that you find a standalone issue of a comic whose story is long enough to satisfy. Publishers try this from time to time, but often the stories feel rushed and uninvolved. In issue one of Earthbound Comics’ The Adventures of Alibi Jones, we get not one but three stories in just over 40 pages that not only satisfy, but leave you wanting more.
Sci-fi fans who crave futuristic space epics should definitely check out The Adventures of Alibi Jones #1, where we meet Alibi in the year 2135. He works as a Mediator for the Solar Alliance Interplanetary Force, negotiating treaties between humans and aliens. The stories find Alibi uncovering a heinous plot in “Blind Eye”; meeting his father as a young child in “Father’s Day”; and discovering the perils of time travel in “About Time.”
