Publisher Comments:

First Officer Julian Rodriguez battles his worst foe yet--a band of genetically linked mini-brains known as The Relatives!

First Officer Julian Rodriguez has seen his share of injustice during his time on Earth, and now he's facing his greatest challenge yet: the invasion of his home base by a group of genetically linked mini-brains known as "the relatives." He's been moved from his personal sleep chamber (bedroom) to a subterranean containment facility (the basement).Then he is forced to participate in a show of ceremonial athleticism (football), and must consume a variety of mystery foods (Thanksgiving dinner). But the ultimate disgrace comes when he is threatened with contamination by mini-brain DNA!

Synopsis:

When last we encountered Julian Rodriguez, he'd saved Earth from destruction by bending to the will of his archenemy, Evilomami, and taking out the dreaded trash. In this episode, our hero must don an absurd ceremonial costume and risk contamination at the hands of The Relatives, a band of crude, genetically linked mini-brains. Yet again, Julian saves Earth from total annihilation after he realizes that the planet has at least one redeeming quality — the Earthling delicacy known as empanadas, which his AlphaNana just happens to be serving for dinner.

PRAISE FOR JULIAN RODRIGUEZ EPISODE ONE:

"First in what readers will hope will be a robust series, this hybrid of fiction and graphic novel dusts off a favorite conceit with a slick swipe of edgy visuals and tart commentary. . . . Its impossible to read this without laughing." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
