There are two sides to even the Space Invaders’ story

You monster. You boot up your Atari 2600 (or iPhone) and begin blasting away at those amalgamations of pixels with abandon. Not a moment’s hesitation to sit back and ponder that perhaps these foreign creatures, who we are so quick to xenophobically label as “Invaders,” might have parents that love them and hopes and dreams which they aspire to achieve.

After reading the comic at the link below, I guarantee you will never view these so-called Space Invaders the same way again. Perhaps next time you position your ship to take out that first line of alien beings, you’ll take a moment to think about what they are leaving behind.
