Aliens! They’re coming back into popularity, it seems, after a hiatus brought about by B-list 90s movies. Dark Horse has a new adventure/comedy/sci-fi story titled Resident Alien (not to be confused with the Capcom game) about an alien who has been living as an undercover doctor on our planet for years in any town USA. But all dirty secrets are bound to surface eventually…especially if you’re an alien. When his secret is revealed to the town, he’s forced to live in the limelight. The series is written by Peter Hogan of “Tom Strong”, with art by Steve Parkhouse. Check out the wacky preview of issue #0 below from Dark Horse.

Surviving a crash landing that ruins his spaceship, a stranded alien hopes to quietly live out his life in the sleepy town of Patience, USA, masquerading as a semi-retired doctor.

After three long years of living below the radar, something in Patience is about to pull him out of hiding and into an uncomfortable spotlight! An alien adventure with humor, heart, and mystery—from acclaimed creators Peter Hogan (2000 AD, Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (Milkman Murders, Doctor Who)!
