A party at the Jordan residence will result in the adults all passed out in the house and the kids panicking. When Hal finally awakens, he has to find out what happened and why the house is drifting in between dimensions.
When his nephew discovers the creature behind everything, he and Hal must decide how they can help. They soon discover that there is more to the alien’s story than they realized and both heroes find themselves on the brink of having to take down his own possessed family to stop an alien with a plan to destroy all of humanity using our own technology against us.
For an annual with the ability to tell a longer, more involved story, Morrison doesn’t really take advantage of the freedom that allows in telling this story. The story had some fun moments and some funny lines from Hal and others, but the story is ultimately forgettable. I expected more from the story, especially something that would hint at events affecting Hal in the future, but there just isn’t much there.
Guiseppe Camuncoli’s art is great. The character details are worth experiencing and all of the art is fantastic. I wish there was more to the story because I bet Camuncoli could have done some amazing things for this annual.
