reMIND by Jason Brubaker

Cripple Peaks has one claimed to fame.  Sonia's dad maybe saw a lizard man in 1984.  Sonia would be so out of her little town now that her father's died except that she's really well paid to maintain the lighthouse.  One day, Sonia's cat Victuals goes missing.  When he reappears days later, he's changed.  He has stitches in his head...and he can talk.  The story he tells Sonia has her rethinking all the stories her father ever told her.

So.  This was pretty weird, but I think it has the potential to be really good.  This is only the first volume though, so it ends on a cliff hanger and many questions are left unanswered.

It seems that the ruler of the lizard people (yes, they're real) who live underwater has been switching the minds of some of his people with those of common household pets.  But why?  Why?  Well, we don't really know yet!  But for something nefarious most definitely.

Sonia, lucky, just so happens to have an underwater suit that she'd designed for her father before he dies which she refits for Victuals so he can go back and figure out what's going on.

While the focus is mostly on the lizard people, I hope there's more of Sonia too, who seems like a really cool character.  Volume 2 is being published page by page online.
