Alien Doctor hides out in small town.  Sounds solid to me.



DARK HORSE COMICS' OWN RESIDENT ALIEN!
THE DOCTOR IS IN!

February 1, MILWAUKIE, OR—Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse bring their epic Dark Horse Presents tale of an alien hero named Harry to a fully fledged series beginning with Resident Alien #0!

"I blame Steve Parkhouse. Having collaborated with him long ago on a couple of stories for The Dreaming, I was keen to do so again—and anyone who's ever seen Steve's work (on The Bojeffries Saga or The Milkman Murders, to name but two) already knows the reason why: he's stunningly good," stated Hogan. "We introduced our friendly alien to the world in the pages of Dark Horse Presents last year, and those installments have now been collected into Resident Alien #0. Over the next few months, you'll learn a bit more about Harry and his supporting cast and watch as he attempts to catch a murderer—and that's just for starters. This alien is here to stay."

A stranded alien seeks refuge in the small town of Patience, USA, where he hides undercover as a semiretired doctor, masking his appearance using his unique mental abilities. Now known as Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle, all the alien wants is to be left alone until he's rescued. However, when the town's real doctor dies, "Dr. Harry" is pulled into medical service—and also finds himself smack dab in the middle of a murder mystery! He'd rather be fishing. Acclaimed creators Peter Hogan (2000 AD, Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (Doctor Who) deliver a truly unique sci-fi adventure tale!

Resident Alien #0 is on sale April 18, 2012.

Resident Alien #1 is on sale May 23, 2012.

About the Author - SuperginraiX


SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
