It all started with a little alien simply called Subject M…
Area 42 is a science fiction/ comedy webcomic about that alien and the various colorful characters he meets, including his roommate and paranormal investigator Charleston Charge, the aptly-named robot Perverto, government agents who would love to get their mitts on M, and a whole slew of recurring characters. It ain’t easy being green, but at least it isn’t boring.
