A stranded alien scientist hides out in the sleepy town of Patience, Washington, while federal agents begin to close in on him. Secrets about his home planet—as well as his first months on Earth—are revealed! This special #0 issue collects Resident Alien: The Sam Hain Mystery chapters 1 to 3, originally serialized in Dark Horse Presents Volume 3, #1 through #3, published in 2014
Resident Alien has been around for awhile and this is a great opportunity for readers to get a refresh on the characters before moving on to newer stories about our distinguished interloper and part time country doctor. He may even solve a mystery or two with the help of his plucky native american nurse.
Issue 0 takes you through Harry setting up shop in the town of Patience after obtaining a nest egg of legal currency in Vegas to throw off the Government agents circling in on him. This comic is not a slam bang ride but a leisurely cruise in an Aston Martin. The muted colors set the tone of an involved narrative that will draw you in on a subtle but sure ride. Ready for a slow steady pace that will leave you flipping pages with rapt anticipation, come join displaced alien Harry Vanderspeigle for a little clue gathering whodunnit.
