    A return to the political drama/UFO conspiracies for Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly and it is as if they haven't been away. The style, the pace and the brilliance picks up straight from where Saucer Country left off. A wonderful read for old and new fans alike. Read Full Review

    If you're into political stories and/or UFO/extraterrestrial mythology, this series is one that you can't afford to miss out on. IDW will also be publishing the first 14 issues of Saucer Country, so be sure to read up on what happened before the events of this series, too! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 24, 2017

    As a fan of the first volume, Saucer State has been a comic I've been looking forward to since it was announced and can't wait to see where Cornell and Kelly take us as far as this conspiracy goes. If the end of the first issue is any indication, it'll be a wild ride as already I'm caught off guard with the unexpected. A solid return and debut and I'm excited to see what happens next.

    Word Of The Nerd - Megan Rae May 25, 2017

    Saucer State #1 started off strong with an intriguing premise and a few opening pages that introduced the alien plot. However, this first issue felt disjointed and aimless. Hopefully, within the next few issues, more characters get a chance to develop within the context of the plot and give us an idea of where the book is headed. With a clear direction and well-developed characters, this multi-faceted plot line may have a chance to shine. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Eric Cline May 23, 2017

    The nuts and bolts of a solid narrative are here, but with ineffective character drama and a lack of alien involvement, this debut issue fails to make much of an impression. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Erik Koehn May 24, 2017

    Whatever hope you might have had about this being either a challenging, entertaining or inventive story ends with the final page as this book, while not only box checking for resonance with the current political zeitgeist, goes for the most obvious cliff hanger. This is less Terence McKenna or the "Jose Chung" episodes of The X-Files. It's more Whitley Streiber by way of Oliver Stone. Read Full Review
