Eden'sVille, Maryland is a typical Norman Rockwell-esque small suburban town that you probably couldn't find with a map and an Indian guide. It's the place that geeky Zach, tomboyish Jemmy, wisecracking Chubs, and genius nerd Plato call home. But one dark night threatens to turn Eden's Ville into Roswell by the bay. <p> The U.S. military tracks a giant meteor on a collision course with earth. But this is no ordinary meteor. It does tricks--Like dodging missiles. The army tracks the meteors descent to a small suburban town in Maryland (Eden'sVille), where Zach witnesses it crash land on the outskirts of town, bringing with it the kooky maniacal, Jim Carey-like alien Gakk and his posse of "Acme Instant Alien Kreatures" for a not-so-friendly visit to Earth. <p> The uber-paranoid Clint Eastwood like military leader General Patton and his long suffering second in command Colonel Schultz prepare the U.S. armed forces for "Operation: No room at the Alien" to deal with the alien invasion threat posed by Gakk and his Pod Critters, and the alien armada coming to help them bring the earth to it's knees. As Eden'sVille becomes plagued by sudden "strange disappearances," Zach, Jemmy, Plato, and Chubs set out to stop the invasion, save the world, and show the aliens that the kids of america don't take crap from nobody--And no body snatchers, either! <p> ISSUE #1: <p> GAAK #1 pages 1 to 33 <p> Welcome to Zach's life. He's 12 years old and the town misfit. His little brother and big sister tease him because there's nothing good on TV and bullies chase him and his friends home after school just for the exercise. Oh yeah, and then there's that little problem with the invading aliens from outer space.
