Welcome to an exclusive preview of Resident Alien: An Alien in New York! If I'm not mistaken, this is the fifth volume of the Resident Alien series. I have followed and reviewed damn near every issue of this series, and it is one of my favorites from Dark Horse. Now, I'm not going to drone on and one about what the series is about because it's worth reading on your own, but the title, tends to do most of the work. I will say that if you've never read the series, you can pretty much jump on with any volume. There is an over-arching story that's being told, but every mystery is self-contained to that volume.
Synopsis for Resident Alien: An Alien in New York
A stranded alien continues to hide in plain sight in Patience, Washington, posing as the small town's doctor. When a startling new mystery catches his attention, he takes a trip to New York City with one of his only human friends, a Native American shaman. Peter Hogan (2000 AD, Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (Milkman Murders, Doctor Who) continue their unique, acclaimed science-fiction/murder-mystery series!
