"Shock Effect is about growing up during an alien invasion. We join Alice and her mom as they await a rescue that could lead to the truth behind the invasion itself. Each panel makes me want to make out with my monitor. That sounded strange, didn’t it? Yeah, well, I do, as strange and awkward as it may be. Competitor John Lang‘s artwork is truly gorgeous. Beautiful, clean and all around solid. Alongside its beauty is its equally enchanting writer, competitor Ian Daffern, whose storytelling brings each panel to life flawlessly. I’m dying to know what happens next and yes, I hope it’s picked for truly selfish reasons. "
