Rest Area 51 Launches February 24th from Studio Tapas

Rest Area 51

Tapas Media, leading digital publisher of webcomics and novels, have a brand-new original series from Studio Tapas. Rest Area 51 debuts for free on the platform next Wednesday, February 24.

Rest Area 51 is the first ever collaboration between Coleman Engle and Caleb Goellner, two respected members of the comics community. Engle is one of the lead artists for the acclaimed Steve Universe series from Kaboom!, and Goellner is a contributor for IDW Publishing’s hits Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Sonic the Hedgehog, along with a number of other titles across the industry.

Here is the premise, according to the press release:

Rest Area 51 follows the delightful adventures of Grayce Green, a pre-teen who moves to her late grandma’s Area 51-themed rest stop. Thinking she was about to have the most bummer summer ever, Grayce soon discovers this is anything but your typical gas station: it’s an intergalactic alien rest stop! Together with her super-smart space engineer best friend Starla and the half-cactus turtle in an alien half-shell Torctus, the crew go on out-of-this-world adventures. Stopping plant zombie apocalypses, defeating evil alien empires, Grayce and pals do their best to help extraterrestrial travelers on their way to a rumored paradise planet so long as the alien obsessed, super weird, government goon Agent Schwarz doesn’t catch them first…

“Tapas has an enormous, excited, and engaged global readership that the current physical market hasn’t reached and may not have thought about serving yet,” says writer Caleb Goellner. “I’ve watched some of my solo comics blow up on the platform after years of traditional convention tabling, and overall Tapas is simply a potent place to be as a creator.”

“Tapas offers an incredible opportunity for an immediate global audience!,” said artist Coleman Engle. “Working with Tapas has also helped me streamline my own production, taking traditional aspects and incorporating more digital steps in the creative process.”

Rest Area 51 touches down with the first three episodes on February 24th. The first season, consisting of 24 episodes, will be available for free on Tapas and publish twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
