The elusive Dr. Vanderspeigle is progressively becoming a crucial town figure in Resident Alien #1, which is incidentally not a debut, but a continuation. As it says at the very beginning of Issue #1, in order to fully get the gist of what’s happened, one should read the true debut, Issue #0, first. That said, you can still understand what’s going on from issue #1. Creators Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse, who have already collected critical acclaim for impressive work on comics, such as “Tom Strong” (Hogan) and “Doctor Who” (Parkhouse), have created a highly engaging science fiction story about a stranded alien recluse who starts to live amongst us humans.

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.
