Paul Cornell launched his new alien political thriller last month as part of the Vertigo “relaunch” initiative, and while I doubt anyone expected the book to flop, it was a shockingly refreshing take on alien conspiracy and the U.S. government. There is an insane amount of potential behind Saucer Country and we can hardly wait until the hard sci-fi aspects start to show.
Expect this month to be a big set up issue, planting the literary seeds for big events to come in the future. Below you can check out the four-page preview.
