Initially released via social media, and available as a free download (or you can buy a physical copy), Big F#@k Off Worms is a high energy, all action, fun sci-fi silliness by Matt Garvey. Packed full of outrageous concepts and explosive, high energy black and white artwork. There's also this fantastic cover!
ABOUT BIG F#@K OFF WORMS #1
In 2018 thousands of worms were shot into space to a scientist aboard the international space station. They wanted to see how a worm's muscles would react in zero gravity with the hope it would aid them in the research to stop muscular dystrophy on astronauts.
However, after a freak radiation storm, the space station is destroyed and the debris along with the irradiated worms are sent hurtling back to earth. That was twelve years ago and now on Earth, we have… BIG F#@K OFF WORMS… and Petey is the only man who can stop them!
Why you should read/buy
As you would expect with a title like BFOW, the comic doesn’t take itself too seriously. It's not just the worms that have changed, as other than Petey, every human has been muted into human/animal hybrids. All thanks to the radiation from the crashed space station. And look great.
- The art style is incredible.
- It delivers on that big f#@k off worm!
- Mixes in some good humour to a story that warrants it. Petey firing at a worm, tiring himself out and then asking for a break because he misjudged how far away the worm was, makes two cracking pages.
