“The story begins with a bunch of rednecks at a local bar having a normal night of fun. At first, they don’t realize that the television broadcast of an alien is for real. One of the dudes then makes a comment. This is one of the funniest comments ever…”d@mn Teletubbies, get the race on, Jimbo”! That was hilarious, and several other moments like that are what make this book so funny.
Although, on the flip side of all the humor, if you really think about it, the characters in the bar that carry the story along with a “resistance” fighter, are very real in the sense that anyone who lives in a rural area probably knows a few of these types. Seriously, though, the characters that drive the book are definitely believable, but also over the top at the same time.
The aliens themselves are a pretty neat concept. Their design is a typical alien life form design, but they do have these long tendrils that emanate from the back of their heads. The reason the aliens are on Earth, is because they found a fuel source called SF-92. The reveal as to what that actually is makes for some more funny moments, as well. Bruce and Chip do a fine job with showing the wacky characters, the funny settings, and the aliens’ motives for being on Earth. It’s a light read, but an entertaining and humorous one.“

Description: The Earth is ruled by ruthless alien invaders who came to our planet seeking a mysterious power source known only as Sf-92. Now, one year later, the merciless aliens have crushed the planet’s armed forces and annihilated all freedom fighters. All but one: SGT Coleman is Earth’s last hope. If he can find Sf-92 then maybe–just maybe–he can use it against the alien conquerors and win mankind’s freedom. His search brings him to Clay County: a backward, redneck slice of the deep south that is completely unaware–or too drunk to care–of humanity’s subjugation by an alien army. Together with the unlikely allies of Clay County citizens Blake, Vern, Hot Dog and Root, Coleman sets out to find Sf-92 before the Earth’s otherworldly overlords, save mankind, and drink a few cold ones along the way.
