The old cliché that it has to be seen in order to be believed definitelyi applies to this novel. As we learn in the opening pages, after Santa Ana was shot at the Alamo, history takes a vastly different turn. A hundred years later, something has happened in Roswell, TX. The President of Texas, Charles Lindbergh Jr., sends Wild Bill Bear to investigate with three Texas Rangers.
The United States, California, France, and Mexico also send agents, including pink-wearing Nazis, Madame Curie, and a host of other characters. The Pope is involved, an internal spy group in Texas keeps tabs on most of the players, and the mystery deepens when Bill Bear encounters the rancher in Roswell where events took place, a drop-dead gorgeous brunette from Tennessee, called Bettie.
... Historical characters blend seamlessly with fictional ones, and this has to be one of the funniest, most enjoyable alternative histories I have ever read.

From straight outta Round Rock's own Big Head Press comes this rollicking and thoroughly Texalicious misadventure involving spies, counterspies, extraterrestrials, cowboys, commandos, and bikini-clad sorority girls from the galaxywide territories of the University of Texas. Say what?
Say: It's an alternative history that begins with Davy Crockett surviving the battle of the Alamo, Texas remaining an independent republic, an alien spacecraft crashing in Roswell, and things getting weirder from there. Much, much weirder, with all manner of cameos from celebrities from our reality e.g., John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Gene Roddenberry, Marie Curie figuring strongly, in new guises, in an outlandish narrative that'll appeal to any pop-culture fans who like a bit of conspiracy theory sprinkled on top of their flakes of sci-fi goodness. Scott Bieser and Jen Zach's artwork, classic comic book rendering, effectively nails the tone and the times to each grayscale panel.
