Should we be afraid? Be very afraid, even? Can any sequel avoid vomiting upon our memories, dissolving them, and then sucking them back up?

Well, this five-issue miniseries will focus on the son of Brundlefly, so it’s already most likely ignoring The Fly II, which is perfectly fine with me.

Years ago, a scientist had a horrific accident when he tried to use his newly invented teleportation device and became a human/fly hybrid. Now his almost-human son continues to search for a cure for the mutated genes. But a breakthrough turns into a breakout, and anyone exposed risks turning into a monster as well…

Oh, so it’s Dawn of the Planet of the Brundleflies? I can dig that.
