    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Oct 9, 2013

    This is one of the best ongoing mini-series in comics right now. I'm very much looking forward to the ending in the next issue, but I know I'm going to be bummed out when I'm forced to wait for the next installment. In that way it's like a good mystery novel always leaving you wanting more even after giving you so much already. If you missed out on the start of this volume or series then I would highly recommend you track down all the previous issues for purchase. If you enjoy mysteries and a bit of sci-fi then you'll love this genre defying series that nails both. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sam Roche Oct 2, 2013

    But alas, a comic should not only be judged on it's door-quantity. The writing in this issue was exactly right for the book. Peter Hogan did a great job of giving us a good sense of what his characters were really like, more so than in the past two issues. The dynamic between Harry and Asta shifts and progresses, all of the people interrogated have very different and defined personalities and we even get a glimpse at Harry's love-interest back on his home planet.The writing in this issue was exactly right for the book.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 9, 2013

    This is a solid issue in the middle of this mini-series and it drives the story forward well. For fans of murder mystery shows with a twist, Resident Alien will be right up your alley. Issue #2 is well crafted and a strong issue for readers to dive into. Resident Alien is as strong as ever, and fans of the first series will be right at home with this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Oct 18, 2013

    As I mentioned last time, Resident Alien: Suicide Blonde is a wonderful read for its quiet approach and use of space to show rather than tell. It operates very differently from Dark Horse's other output this month, which shows off exactly how narcissism can take over a narrative. Here, writer Peter Hogan lets things play out, gives characters an opportunity to speak for themselves, and, especially important given the story's mystery premise, allows readers a space to put things together.

    Florida Geek Scene - Mark Viola Oct 30, 2013

    The story is still good, and the writing still stronger than a lot of Dark Horses other offerings, so this continues to be a must read on my list. For those of you who have read the other installments, youre already reading this, and what I say here has no importance to you whatsoever, so lets just end this thing. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Oct 8, 2013

    It's too bad Hogan has effectively cleaved the murder mystery from the alien story in this first arc of Resident Alien. Together, these two elements might have offered a compelling new take on two very familiar narratives. But separated, neither is developed enough to stand on their own. Read Full Review
