Comments: A group of important people raise the Devil. Seeing some famous people in this group makes it fun such as the Pope , Oprah and the Dump. The Dump is
Boris Drude is drawn giving an intense performance on stage. Now the story takes a tun into the weird. There are two Boris's and some strange evil looking guy in a car. Who is he and what is going on?
There is nudity and sexual scenes so this is a mature title.
The Devil and the Illuminate are up to no good but do they have a plan? Well one does form from the random chaos. Well not really a plan but a goal to achieve.
Than we have body switching with no explanation. Why is this going on? There is even time traveling sort of.
Then there is a big battle with the Devil and Boris. Or is there? What do the lizard men want?
The art looks great and shows off the characters in a light to bring across their personalities.
The final battle turns into something weird and it is so hard to follow what is going on. It is like some strange drug trip that makes no sense. The Beatles tie in is strange to see as it does not fit in.
Boris is a great character and one people will like. He is the star of this comic and but with everything going on he gets lost in the chaos.

Comments: Boris Drude is having an autopsy done on him when he decides to find out what happened.
Than we jump back two weeks to see how he got to where he is. There is mention of reptilians. Boris can see them while others cannot. What is the agenda of these alien reptilians?
Boris is part of a band. Now Boris's character needs to be exploded more as to who and why he is what he is.
The art definitely needs work. People are drawn with parts of their bodies shaped oddly. The reptilians are done better they are like snake people wit extra long necks.
The story needs to focus it is all over the place with no clear direction.
Boris's girlfriend Leena is kidnapped to be eaten. For what reason though? The reptilians are out to kill Boris now so he has to fight.
We do learn something about Boris that does explain why he can see the reptilians. It is an unexplained fact.
The making fun of Prince Charles is cute.
The characters needed to be gotten into more. The pin-up art in the back is gorgeous. The reptilians look awesome. Boris Drude is a great character he just needs to be explored more.
