Today, Dark Horse sent out word that Peter Hogan (2000 AD, Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (Milkman Murders, Doctor Who) will be returning to Resident Alien for a new stand alone science-fiction/murder-mystery series. Resident Alien: The Sam Hain Mystery #0 is on sale April 29, 2015 and is just the first of a four part series from Dark Horse Comics.
Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle is actually a stranded alien explorer hiding out in a sleepy town in the Pacific Northwest. His short time as a doctor in Patience, Washington, has kept him busy solving mysteries, though! With a few successes under his belt, Harry tackles another one after the contents of an old briefcase hint that a murderer could be hiding in town in plain sight—using an alias. Sound familiar?
In an interview this week Hogan talked about coming back to the series saying, “We always have a lot of other material to cover with each series and we certainly don’t want to wrap this whole thing up anytime soon. We’re having too much fun.”
Expect to hear more about the book and other announcements from Dark Horse this week as New York Comic Con gets officially underway Thursday.
