Jennifer McGinnis:

Comics as a Second Language

Drafted 99¢ Special

Drafted 99¢ Special

Find it on Atomic Avenue

Genre: Sci-Fi

Mark Powers and Chris Lie give us Drafted, the tale of an alien war coming to Earth. The world is on edge as millions of people succumb to a mysterious ailment across the globe, ranging from severe headaches to brain hemorrhaging and blindness. Many people fear that it is biological warfare, but doctors are unable to explain what is happening or trace it a virus, and religious leaders step up to help ease the tension. The strange migraines may be a message from God, some believe. Or they just may be a wake-up call from an entirely different source.

Jennifer grew up in an almost-rural part of California and is currently living in the metropolis of Portland. She knows how to fish without bait, find magnetic north, shoot a bow and arrow, and slaughter small animals, but very rarely does any of it.

Jennifer’s favorite comics include PS 238, She-Hulk, Usagi Yojimbo, Fables, and Impulse.
