Saucer Country #6 (There's your Alien reference Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Aug 19, 2012 4:42 pm

This issue seemed to me like Cornell’s mission statement for this series. He’s going to take all of the random UFO mythology that’s out there, and explore it, order it, and turn it into a really exciting story that aims to be the definitive fiction on Flying Saucers. Maybe that’s a bit high-minded, but I just loved seeing him bring in stuff from real supposed UFO sightings, and tying it in with elements from films and TV shows to make a crazy whole. And yet it still feels like we’re only just scratching the surface. After an only OK opening arc, this issue is the one that really sold me on this book, you could just feel Cornell’s passion for this subject seeping through every page, and I can’t wait to find out more about the UFOs and what his take on the ‘truth’ is. Cornell’s Knight & Squire co-conspirator Jimmy Broxton provided the art for this one, and he did a very good job, especially as he had to draw things from all sorts of different timeframes and loads of different types of alien. This was the best issue of Saucer Country so far, so bring on #7!

It's good, but not great so far, this issue was the best yet.

If you are interested in politics or UFO lore, you should definitely check it out, and the art is very good.
