It's the news story of the century! Oliver Flores - the kid on the face of every milk carton in New Mex-ico - has been found.

Recovering at the hospital, Oliver is finally able to reveal where he's been for the last nineteen years: Along with his stepfather, he was abducted by aliens. And the only real problem with that is...no one believes him. Not the detectives from his case, not the doctors who treated him, not even his biologi-cal dad. They're all convinced Oliver is suffering from massive trauma.

Meanwhile, no one seems to notice the suspicious Strangers in Black trying to silence Oliver for good.

    Midnight Vista definitely has some good hooks to it with its abduction story, the lighter tone with a serious streaking that it has, and the visual design of it. Meath's artwork tickles a particular fancy for me with what it does and it feels very appropriate for the story at hand with how it's being told. Rahal's script works well to move us along and fill in some of the blanks while at the same time easing some expansive concepts that you're left wondering if they're real or some fever-dream still to be realized. The second issue expands on the story and moves it forward with a healthy dose of violence bursting in at the end that feels surprisingly appropriate. Read Full Review
