Just read issues 1 to 5. It's a great, easy to read comic and is the sort of thing that could easily fit into 2000AD. It features some nice art from Dan Cornwell and I am glad to see he will be doing some work for 2000AD.
There were a few little touches I liked including:
- Corn Well Flakes
- the suggestion from the commentators that the missing ref had popped off to the optician
- the names of some of the United players made me chuckle
In amongst a story of space changing aliens taking on human form there were two plot points that frankly stretch credibility to breaking point:
1) Real Madrid expressing an interest in a lower league player - regardless of how many goals they score in a series of games
2) possibly the most unlikely thing I have seen in a comic in a very long time - professional football clubs taking the FA Cup seriously.
