Thaddeus hates his new baby sister. He comes up with a conspiracy theory that she is an alien because she says "ga" in prime numbers (she'll say it once, twice, three times, five times, etc). He starts monitoring her closely, interpreting everything she does as evidence that she is an alien. His sister loves the time they spend together and babbles to him even more. Then one day, she starts puking up these rather large capsules, which are actually space ships for an alien race hellbent on bringing peace and happiness to Earth! Thaddeus is vindicated. He was right! He tells his parents, he tells the FBI, he tells everyone! Then his sister is taken away to be studied....

I loved this comic. It's pretty short, but such a cool take on sibling rivalry. Very different from the author's other work and I liked it the best, maybe because it's more for kids.
