With a nod, if not a deep bow to Rick And Morty , this short by Stefan Schumacher tells the tale of Trevor and Gleb – two alien sharks who camouflage themselves to blend in after crash landing on a strange planet.
Codex Seraphinianus is strange, even for the most open-minded readers. Codex Seraphinianus is essentially an encyclopedia about an alien world that is clearly a reflection of our own, with each chapter dealing with key facets of this surreal place, including the flora, fauna, science, machines, games, and architecture. However, it’s difficult to be exact because no-one has been able to understand even the ‘Contents’ page.
Short on story but lovely to look at, Vitaliy Shushko’s short – influenced by many sci-fi predecessors and proud of it – is an action-packed side-scrolling tour of alien realms in the company of a fearless adventurer.
