Set in 1933, Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott face the most serious threat Earth has ever known – an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.
The storytelling method is what makes the experience of The Intergalactic Nemesis so incredibly unique and mesmerizing.
There are more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, hi-resolution and intensely vivid comic book images displayed on a giant screen as three actors play all the parts and one Foley artist and one keyboardist perform all sound effects and music.
