Even aliens and those who travel throughout the galaxy get sick and injured, which means there has to be someplace for them to go for medical treatments, right? AWA’s newest title ET-ER #1 explores what interplanetary medical staff must go through when treating the galaxy’s ailments.
Read the official synopsis from the publisher:
Severed tentacle won’t grow back? Intergalactic virus has liquefied one of your heads? Feeling a bit woozy ever since you drove through that black hole? Make a beeline for Roswell General, the galaxy’s leading medical facility. Secretly serving the cosmos since 1947, this interplanetary crew of doctors, nurses, paramedics, and technicians is uniquely qualified to cure what ails you – no matter where you’re from.
Today’s patient? An alien from the boondocks of outer space whose deadly immune system will put the doctors to the ultimate test: to save their patient, they must first survive him.
But that’s just one story in the truly limitless universe of E.T./E.R, which stands at the intersection of E.R. and Men in Black. For the courageous health care workers at Roswell General, no planet is too far, no asteroid is too small, and no life form is too, well, alien, for their care – and they accept most forms of insurance.
Each issue of the anthology series features a one-shot story centered on Roswell General. With a lineup of different creative teams for each installment, the stories offer readers a variety of narratives and art styles. The first issue set to release on Wednesday is entitled “The Walk Ins” and is written by Jeff McComsey. The story is illustrated by Javier Pulido, and Dezi Sienty rounds out the team with letters.
