Resident Alien #1

by lucstclair on May 25, 2012

After the events that lead the alien visitor to conceal his true appearance from the townsfolk using mind tricks (see Resident Alien #0), he settles in as the new temporary replacement doctor after the local doctor was murdered. The murder of Dr. Hodges points to a small time dealer junky who was at the scene of the crime, but the alien, with his empathic abilities believes the true killer is still out there.

 

A whodunit with a sci-fi twist as the plot thickens in this very enjoyable little mini series from Dark Horse Comics. I like how the alien interacts with the people and his curiosity & fascination with the crime that was committed. Will this E.T. find his way home? Written by Peter Hogan (Terra Obscura) & illustrated by Steve Parkhouse (The Milkman Murders).
