In The Comicverse #2, the comic shop on the final frontier is visited by a creature who has a bad reaction to an alien energy drink. The confused creature soon goes crazy, shape-changing into the characters it sees in the comics around the store, wreaking havoc and tearing the store apart! The situation soon goes even more out of control as guests begin to wander in at the worst possible time!
In a new backup feature, the reader gets a web-surfing tour through a space encyclopedia (called the Akashipedia) that reveals some of the mysteries behind the Comicverse space station and the aliens that play an important part in the series. Artist Steve Peters says: “I wanted to have a handbook to the Comicverse that would partly like the Dune Encyclopedia, and part like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I think Bianca reached a new level writing the Akashipedia entries—there’s some very funny stuff in there!”
