Synopsis [Spoiler alert]
Native girl Fala is studying edible plants in the wilderness. A jester-like Trickster appears, entices her with a "Who's on first?" line of double-talk, and scampers off. She eats a mushroom and finds herself in a company town-style rez with a Queen of Hearts-style "Diva" in charge. She steals a car and crashes it...is brought before Diva, tried and sentenced...is locked in a file room but escapes with Trickster's help...and goes home.
Again, this may have been the intent. But dreams generally don't provide satisfying stories, much less useful "life lessons." I want the comics I read to be a little more meaningful than someone's kooky dream.
Overall, I think FALA is better than THE WEST WAS LOST. At least it's supposed to be surreal, whereas THE WEST WAS LOST was supposed to be a straight post-apocalyptic adventure. If it cost $3.99 like DOG EATERS #1, I'd probably say skip it. But since it's a free Web comic, I say check it out.
