Alan Moore called it "a pitch-perfect narrative from two of my favourite creators." Jeff Lemire called it "One of the most charming and wonderful comics being published today." But hardly anyone reads it. That is going to change, fast. Resident Alien by Tom Strong's Peter Hogan and BoJeffries Saga's Steve Parkhouse is published by Dark Horse Comics. fairly under the radar. And Peter Hogan has been out on set watching the TV adaptation being filmed starring Firefly, Doom Patrol and Star Wars' Alan Tudyk being filmed, debuting on SYFY later this year.
Early issues have recently been selling on eBay for $13 a pop, but Dark Horse has a much better way for those new to the TV series to get caught up – and maybe indicate when the TV series will air. Because the whole series is being collected in a series of omnibus paperback collections, beginning with Resident Alien Omnibus Volume 1, which collects volumes 1 through 3 of the series: Welcome to Earth!, The Suicide Blonde, and The Sam Hain Mystery. 288 pages long, Resident Alien Omnibus Volume 1 goes on sale August 18th. Look for the TV series around then.
Living undercover as a semi-retired, small-town doctor, a stranded alien's only hope is to stay off humanity's radar until he can be rescued. When he's pulled into a surprising murder mystery by the town's desperate mayor and struggling police chief, "Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle" learns more about the human condition than he ever wanted to. Acclaimed creators Peter Hogan (2000 AD, Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (Milkman Murders, Doctor Who) deliver a truly unique sci-fi adventure tale with heart and humor!
