The New Melonpool

Melonpool, the sci-fi comedy strip by Steve Troop, scrubbed its archives clean in favor of a brand-new comic book page format. This marks a new chapter in the strip's history, and a great jumping-on point for new readers.

Melonpool launched on April 28th, 1996, and has five book compilations to date. The veteran strip tells the story of the crew of the Steel Duck, a group of alien misfits who crashland on Earth.

Melonpool is a part of Blank Label Comics.

Re: The New Melonpool

I have never read this comic before. I really wanted to check out the older ones and see the difference in formula and what it's about, but now I can't.

If you want to start reading, now would be a good time because he's more-or-less starting over after the re-boot (you don't need to know anything that came before).

If you want to compare the current story to what came before, however, you will need to purchase the books.

Well depending on how much you wanted to, you can always buy the books. But, that does cost money.
