Shepherd's clever little retro "Flying Saucer" fable
seems as timely in today's paranoid culture as it did in 1989
when he created the strip. It features a pair of button-up scientists,
Walt and Frank, and a couple joy-ridin' foot-loose aliens who
cause more than their fair share of confusion. Told in minimal
black & white panels with touches of gray and half-tone,
Thom's nostalgic comic recalls a simpler time and reminds one
of the child-like wonders of discovery. "A Friday in '52"
is reminiscent of the days when comics were clean and uncluttered
and stories were character driven avoiding unnecessary violence
and cliched stereotyping. Black Egg Theatre is proud to dust
off this little hidden gem and present it to you for the first
time. Please Enjoy.
