For those who weren't there at the beginning, issue one is a collection of shorts instead of one continuous story. Alec travels to Philly, has re-occurring nightmares, and tries to save the worms. Number two is Alec's trip to New York, plus Alec gets abducted by aliens. Number three is an epic road trip across the united states, which accurately captures what roadtrips are mostly like. It's hot, there's traffic, and sometimes you have to sleep in the car. Of course it captures the exciting parts too. Number four is the most developed of course, and most closely resembles the Phase 7 we know and love today. It's story line of a young man so captivated by other people's graffiti that he strikes out and begins doing it himself. Until 'the man' brings him down.
