    This review ended up being short and sweet because what's left to say about this mini-series? It's been a fantastic read and I really enjoyed how the creative team switched up their usual murder mystery and really just how different each mystery is. What's very impressive is how human all of these stories are and when you consider the lead is an alien, well it's even more impressive that they manage to keep that feel why still making him a stranger in a strange land. Yet another impressive story from the creative team. Read Full Review

    I’m stoked to see where this series goes. We’ve got one mystery solved, and a lot more we need to figure out. Hogan sure knows how to get our interest! I wish there was more coming soon, but we’ll have to wait until 2016 for Resident Alien Volume 4: The Man with No Name. Get ready! Read Full Review

Plus, given the note that it ends on, it does seem that therere interesting things in store for our hero. If youve already invested, youll get a kick here " otherwise, its passable. Read Full Review
