Stranded and living undercover on our planet, the alien now known as Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle races to solve a small-town crime before federal agents close in on him and discover his secret! Biding his time in the sleepy town of Patience, USA, Dr. Harry has masked his existence with a form of alien telepathy. There are those who are resistant to his strange powers, however, and Harrys time is running out. Someone very close to him is about to blow his cover! Acclaimed creators Peter Hogan (2000 AD, Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (Milkman Murders, Doctor Who) deliver a truly unique sci-fi adventure tale with heart and humor!

    If you missed this series then you really need to check it out from the beginning because it’s very different and interesting. It focused on one element of a Sci-Fi world, but in doing so it created a larger much more rewarding world in its wake. I was happy with this series and it’s ending and if it ended here that would be okay, but thankfully it continues on. Read Full Review

    If you haven't been reading Resident Alien, start. This is a great finale to the first volume of the series that I hope to see more of very soon. Read Full Review

    The good news about coming to the end of this fun mini-series is that Dark Horse is planning to bring back the friendly alien doctor in the pages of Dark Horse Presents and eventually in a new series entitled Resident Alien 2 : The Suicide Blonde. If you’re looking for something different to read, than I highly recommend this series, hunting for back issues shouldn’t be too hard to find, or you can always wait for the tpb which will eventually come out. This issue gets a 4 star rating and the entire run gets a 4 star rating as well. Here are my reviews of Resident Alien #0, #1 & #2. Read Full Review

    You should really pick this series up if you have any interest in either SciFi or crime and mystery. The series plays well on both sides, and with amazing dialogue and very solid artwork, I am looking forward to more series of the Resident Alien. Read Full Review

    "Resident Alien" #3 is a satisfactory conclusion to the mini-series, but it's not as good as the previous chapters were. Hopefully now that Hogan and Parkhouse know for certain that more "Resident Alien" comics are happening, we'll see a slightly stronger conclusion to future stories. Still, it was enough fun that I'll read what the duo serve up next. For an "alien hiding on Earth" story, it feels just original and intriguing enough that it stands out and needs to be read.
