Leo Healy has created a truly unique comic called "So You've Been Conquered by the Human Race." It's a choose-your-own-adventure/found document-style sci-fi comic that delves into how to respond when your alien planet is invaded by humans seeking to expand their empire. It's an intriguing read that will leave you pondering the possibilities.

So You've Been Conquered by the Human Race

ALIEN CITIZENS: Has your planet been conquered by an evil regime called the Human Race? Wondering what you can do about it?

Help is at hand! This choose-your-own adventure-style comic will give you all the info you need to get rid of those fascist pigs for good.

It also comes with a FREE sticker saying, "I've been conquered by the Human Race".

The comic started out as a Future Shock pitch to 2000 AD's writers competition, and afterwards I just thought since it was intended to look like a found document, maybe it would work better if I actually made the found document itself!

I've always loved the concept of choose your own adventure-style comics and thought it would be a fun challenge to write one myself, while also venting some of my anger at the political situation in Britain at the moment, under the veil of writing about alien planets in the future.
