I think this comic deserves a nice topic where we can all discussion the latest issues as they come out. The rest of the Vertigo stuff gets their own topics, so why not this underappericated gem?
So, the latest issue, issue nine, came out this week and I really enjoyed it a lot. It wasn't as good as issue 8, which started off this new arc, The Reticulan Candidate, but was still pretty enjoyable. Here's my quick thoughts and be warned SPOILERS be found below:
Saucer Country #9
As Arcadia and her team prepare for the debates in Las Vegas, they have a rather and more realitisic close encounter. Meanwhile, Professor Kidd continues his investigation into “Mork” and “Mindy”, trying to figure out what exactly is going on.
Oh I like her attitude about this debate.
Aliens! Those other black suits must be aliens!
Our Side Characters:
Professor Kidd… you do realize why that cab driver didn’t stay right?
Surprisingly, there is! Gun shots!
You magical helpers are useless! Damn your hinting!
Page 2, Last Panel: That’s one hell of an expression you’re having.
Most Memorable Moment:
Only aliens have that big of foreheads!
So wait he’s going to die? Oh, I kind of liked that bodyguard guy.
What We Should Take from This Comic:
This conspiracy is getting bigger and bigger as apparently and trouble is ramping up as Arcadia moves forward towards the presidency.
What We Do Take From This Comic:
So mysterious government officials in black suits showing up at people’s doors are really just hazing rituals done by the army? Who would have guessed!
Yay or Nay?
Enough about my thoughts, what did you guys think of the issue and of the series so far?
