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.

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

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.
