Paul Scheer Is Writing His First Comic Book, 'Aliens Vs. Parker'

Paul Scheer, of NTSF, The League, and Human Giant fame, is making his first foray into comic book authorship with a new four-issue miniseries called Aliens Vs. Parker that'll debut in February. Comic Book Resources has a nice interview with Scheer and his co-writer on the project, Nick Giovannetti. Working with artist Manuel Bracci and BOOM! Studios, Scheer and Giovannetti wrote Aliens Vs. Parker, a comedic sci-fi story about a bunch of slacker video game players working for a space delivery service who have to take a break from their games when they land on a mysterious planet. Scheer and Giovannetti originally began working on Aliens Vs. Parker as a movie before re-imagining it as a comic book because of that whole thing where comic books are way less difficult to make than movies and movies are pretty much impossible to get made.
