UFOlogy #4

As Malcolm recalls a fond memory of his long-gone mother, he and Becky bond and finally team up to investigate the alien technology he found the night before. But someone is wise to their activities and looks to remove them from the equation.

Becky is now having visions of aliens all around her and Malcolm is doing his best to help her through it, sadly Becky won’t let him electrocute her, so he has to do some brainstorming and wire up a few Star Wars toys.   Off they go to investigate the odd machine that Malcolm found a few issues previous to this one, but someone is there waiting for them.  There are also a series of flashback giving background on events leading up to current day and a long vision Becky has that gives us some additional information on the aliens.

The story of Ufology continues to evolve at a snail’s pace.  It is interesting and seems to have a great deal of potential, but it just doesn’t feel like this book is getting there.  For the fourth installment in a six issue limited series, It’s a bit lackluster.  In a movie, we wouldn’t care about the slow development but as a monthly comic, Ufology just comes off as more than a little boring.  This series will have a hard time keeping the attention of all but the most avid conspiracy Science Fiction fans.

Matthew Fox’s colors light up this series, but his pen and ink work could use a great deal of work.  There are a few panels we see Becky and Mal in that other than her alien tattoo, their faces have little to distinguish them.  The use of symbols in the world balloons toward the end of the issue is inventive and entertaining.  All in all, a sub par outing for this issue, but with some hidden gems for deep lovers of the X-Files and other conspiracy UFO series.
