Some Foreplay (Story)

Money Shot #1 has a simple premise, “A story about scientists having sex with aliens for the glory of mankind-and money.” But Writers Tim Seeley and Sarah Beattie make it anything but simple. They could’ve had Money Shot read as just a silly sex adventures in space, which would have sold well. Instead, they develop characters that are fun and relatable. All while keeping the silly sex adventures in space.

The opening page of a comic will hook the reader. It is essentially giving the audience a quick sample of what’s in store. Be it with humor, awe, violence, an opening crawl explaining the plot, or shock. Money Shot #1 has an opening crawl giving all the necessary history, but the first page with art is the real ‘money shot.’

Artistic qualities aside, Money Shot #1’s opening page does its job perfectly. The art and dialogue are in harmony and stick the landing of a gotcha page. Check it out below.

The Kink Made With Ink (Art)

For a story that deals with humans having sex with aliens, Rebekah Isaacs’ art makes it seem plausible. Now, we don’t condone that. While Isaacs’s pencil work looks realistic, she keeps parts cartoonish. This bodes well with its grounded characters while making the aliens feel out of this world.

On the subject of aliens, the designs are great. Hopefully, several planets are explored, so more species can be exposed.

Keeping the colors akin to those seen on earth, colorist Kurt Michael Russell spices it up once on an alien planet. By giving the planet an overall orange/yellow tint, Russell makes it feel different to earth.

Writing on The Body (Lettering)

Relying on visuals for laughs and story beats, the lettering by Crank! never obscures the art. Whenever there is more dialogue than usual, Crank! maneuvers it as not to cover up the naughty moments. Crank! adds some unevenness to the aliens’ lettering, helping the sense of another language. It’ll be great in future issues of Money Shot if this theme continues, with each species letters/bubbles reading differently.

The Climax (Money Shot Conclusion)

The series title may scare some people away, or even the synopsis. But if comedy, drama, and hot alien sex is your thing, Money Shot #1 will have you coming back for more.

Memorable Quote: “I want you to fuck me, sexy fish-man.” – Dr. Ocampo

Money Shot #1 is filled with quotable moments. But for the opening page, this line throws you headfirst into how far this story will go.
