Animation cartoonist extraordinaire Bill Plympton joins the NBM line-up with a graphic novel advance look at his next goofy feature-length animated film! An astronautšs mission goes awry and hešs figured forever lost until, years later, his daughter spots him on a telescope on his way back to Earth with a ship full of aliens and vengeance on his mind. Yes, vengeance, as the truth is out! Corporate bigwigs wanted his mission a failure! Our valiant (and now rather hirsute) astronaut unleashes the aliens on an aghast humanity!

If you love giant walking noses, old men humping rockets, pooping aliens, bestiality in space, and equal doses of inspired gore and not-so-soft porn, then chances are you're already familiar with the work of Bill Plympton. Mutant Aliens brings together the initial storyboards from his feature film of the same name, much like the previous compilation for 1996's I Married a Strange Person (although Plympton warns that Mutant Aliens may differ from what you end up seeing on the big screen). Baby-boomer illustrator and '80s icon Plympton is probably best known in the mainstream for his Academy Award-nominated short film Your Face, but Mutant Aliens has him at his no-holds-barred best, following the fate of a vengeful astronaut left for dead by his scheming boss (think Lost in Space meets Caligula). --Paul HughesFrom Publishers Weekly:
Released in anticipation of a full-length animated feature of the same name, this is the hilarious comic story of an astronaut, Earl Jensen, stranded in space by Dr. Frubar, a money-hungry politician who's hatched a plot to increase funding for the space program. Twenty years later, Earl crash-lands back on Earth with a ship full of huge mutant creatures. Drifting in space these two decades, Earl has liberated the ship's lab animals and turned the whole enterprise into a weird, orbiting, genetic Garden of Eden. While under the influence of a wacky space home-brew, Earl and his animal pals party a little too hard. He returns to earth with a mutant species in tow, descended from the pig, dog, duck, guinea pig, snake and alligator on board, andAnow it gets really kinkyAfrom Earl himself. Drawn in pencil in Plympton's familiar overheated cartoon style, the black and white panels read like a highly detailed film storyboard, leaving the reader with the impression of having witnessed the artist in the midst of the creative process.
