About this title
As soon as Decoy arrives on Earth, nothing is what it seems anymore for rookie cop Bobby Luck. Is he dead: Is he alive? Why is everyone shooting at him? And when did he fall behind in the strength portion of the battle of the sexes?
There are nothing but questions for Luck until a little, green, shape shifting alien appears- and changes his life forever. Now, with the help of Decoy, he can rid the world of crime!!!
There’s just on e person standing in Luck’s way-Nabob. He has other plans-taking over the world! While Nabob doesn’t have the help of a little, green alien, he does have friends. His cronies are a scientist with weird hair, a Rambo wannabe, and a homicidal, gas-mask wearing freak.
Now Luck and Decoy must depend on each other for survival, and along with Luck’s senior partner, Tessa Moreno, they must stop Nabob from taking over the city. If they don’t, and innocent young girl will die and the city will be lost.
Sounds easy enough, but they must keep Decoy a secret. Who knows who else would be after Luck if they knew he was harboring an alien? The FBI, the CIA, SETI, Sci-Fi junkies...
Decoy is the compilation of the first four issues of the popular Decoy comic series. A little, green, shape-shifting alien is stranded on Earth and befriends a rookie police officer and together the duo match wits with evil master criminals. Creator and artist Courtney Huddleston combines his instantly-charming style with Bob Almond's compelling inks to bring to life the clever scripts by penned writers Eli Williams and Dan Jensen. Decoy features a painted cover by Marc Gabbana.From Publishers Weekly:
This anthology gives many writers and artists the chance to have fun playing with Huddleston's initial concept: the adventures of young policeman Bobby Luck and his buddy, Decoy, a cute little shape-shifting green space alien. Bobby has to conceal his friend's existence from everyone else, especially hot rookie Tessa, while Decoy morphs into whatever Bobby needs, from an umbrella to a bulletproof vest. The basic situation turns out to be adaptable into many forms, pulled between the experiences of a big-city cop and a cute, naïve but very powerful extraterrestrial. Some stories that focus on Bobby doing his job can be serious under a humorous exterior, like "The Invisible Man" (by J. Torres and Travis Kotzbue) or "Mind Games" (by Jason Rand and Bob LeFevre). Others are simply humorous as they show Decoy's geekiness, such as "Red Rage" (by George Gladir and Travis Sengaus). Probably the best is the poignant "Giving Thanks" by I.M. Mater and Michael Lopez, which juxtaposes the family experiences of the two. Despite the lack of continuity due to so many hands working on different stories, the anthology holds together surprisingly well, showcasing a range of art styles, all comfortable within the concept.
