Grandma’s House Is An Alien Rest Stop In ‘Rest Area 51’ On Tapas

by James Ferguson

Tapas Media is launching Rest Area 51, a new Studio Tapas original series beginning on February 24th. The series is the first collaboration between Coleman Engle and Caleb Goellner. It follows a young girl who learns that her grandma’s place is not a quaint alien-themed rest stop, but one that deals with actual aliens.

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.”

The first three chapters will launch on February 24th with new ones added twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The 24-episode first season will be available for free on Tapas.
