The comic is about a group of scientists exploring a cavern filled with strange neonish colored bugs. They eventually figure out the cavern and creatures are parts of a giant alien creature that is absorbing them into itself. One of them becomes a brain person, and I think one of them has a missing daughter? Please help.

  • sound a bit like "Mystery Flesh Pit National Park", but that's more mockumentation than comic

    I reposted an "answer" with someone saying they're looking for the same story, with photographed pages, at scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/278626/… to see if it garners any answers.

This might be Mare Internum, by Der-shing Helmer.

The webcomic is complete and available online here.

Two astronauts fall into a cavern on Mars while trying to track down their lost rover. They find some crazy life forms, including one that claims it's the rover.

Mike, whose mental state is not great, ends up with multiple foreign ... attachments, so it does look like he's being assimilated. Bex, the other astronaut, has a husband and daughter back on Earth, but came as a permanent colonist so there's some discussion on that.


Robin posted some pictures of a comic book they read with a similar premise, which was identified here as being Image Comics's Unearth.

Cover of Unearth #1

When a flesh-warping disease ravages a remote village in Mexico, a scientific task force travels to the inhospitable area to investigate the contamination. Tracing the source of the disease to a nearby cave system, the team discovers a bizarre, hostile ecosystem and a supernatural revelation from which they may never escape.

The cover of issue #5 looks like it could be depicting your "brain person".
