A Different Pace

 DIFP   (Ape, 1997-2000, 2004)


A sexy–cool, space faring pirate lady named Lily and her kooky cohort of talking animal–men hunt for treasure on far–off worlds. Smoking Frog the savvy panther man and Buford the wise–cracking Beaver get equal time with the leading lady in writer/creator David Hedgecock’s frolicsome adventure stories. Plying their trade in high–end mercenary work, Lily and her ethically challenged crew land themselves in tight spots and dangerous situations. A Different Pace includes five such stories in 92–pages with black and white artwork by collaborator Tetsu Liew.

Confrontation with an embittered genie hints at Smoking Frog’s dark past in “Brotherly Love.” Gilbert, an ally turned nemesis, narrates “Gilbert’s Story” about betrayal in the underwater deep. “Rule of the Egg” recasts popular conspiracy theories surrounding 2000’s disputed U.S. presidential election in a fable about a bejeweled egg. Rare “Saschwan Seeds” seem like more trouble than they’re worth for Buford. “Momma’s Amulet” offers a humorous lesson in respecting cultural differences.
