    It s still difficult to tell what is real and what is imagined about aliens The political setting with all its intrigues provides a down to earth story The feeling that the main characters are part of a conspiracy is still present even at the end, after a major revelation, but Arcadia intends to pursue information regardless if she wins the presidency or not.The history of UFO sightings is a fun read Its modern age started in 1947 yey, 47 , but professor Kidd interprets data from over two mill [...]

    Whut the whut This is like if Lost finished halfway through the second episode This is how I felt when HBO prematurely yanked the plug on Carnivale Nooooo It s not finished Did Paul Cornell see a squirrel and just decide to be done Yes, I know that makes no sense That s the point Vol 2 zips through the entirety of the presidential race, occasionally flashing some insightful commentary on the process of campaigning but never pausing to breathe It s a highlight reel, and it could have been so much [...]

    This comic is on the upswing from the first volume Having introduced the characters and the wacky premise, Cornell is now able to offer depth to both The result is intriguing, especially as Cornell rapidly jumps the timeline forward I m left wanting and thus hoping that they find a new publisher.

    Collects Saucer Country issues 7 14The mystery continues to be built in this volume, but there were times where I felt like the writer was spinning his wheels I couldn t feel the story moving towards a destination Then, all of the sudden, things were in fast forward, and the story had a sort of wrap up There were definitely story threads not fully explored, but if you stopped reading after this volume, there is the feeling of a full story between Volumes 1 and 2 This series was cancelled after I [...]

    This second volume of writer Paul Cornell s political science fiction thriller delivers a deeply satisfying finale to a series that went criminally under appreciated in the superhero obsessed American marketplace As in the first volume, Cornell manages to deftly balance the political elements with the fantastic and the conspiratorial, giving us one of the most unique and satisfying comics series in recent memory I have to warn you, though, that not all readers will appreciate how Saucer Country [...]

    In the days after the election of Trump, reading this has all sorts of odd resonances An X Files meets The West Wing mash up or, rather meets The Candidate, I suppose about a Hispanic Governor making a run for the White House who has a traumatic alien abduction experience that throws her and her staff into a strange and shadowy world of illusion and half truth and sinister doings that can t be properly explained It s intelligent, stylish, and plays masterfully with the imagery and conventions of [...]

    The A.V Club pull quote on the back of this trade is An intriguing concept Yeah It is.And there were times in the middle of this trade, where I was thinking it was so much , that, unlike most big concept books that this one was going to deliver on STORY, even though it lacked on fun and excitement and comic bookiness But then the last two issues and really the last issue just didn t.I don t like the way it was resolved at all I know the series got cancelled and they probably did all they could w [...]

    This was a great story, continuing, expanding, and even improving on volume 1 despite the absence in a couple of chapters of artist Ryan Kelly Governor Alvarado continues her run for the presidency and the political stuff in itself is pretty fascinating while the story of UFOs and alien abduction is woven throughout The presidential election story comes to a conclusion at the end of this volume, but the alien story leaves lots of threads dangling and questions unanswered It s too bad this series [...]

    This actually manages to improve itself in the second volume While on the campaign trail, Arcadia uses the traveling to research various alien claims That s the main story, but the focus is on her staff and their experiences especially her Professor There are twists and turns in every story, and they all go to very unexpected but satisfying places If I had one complaint, it feels like everything wraps up too quickly The series ends with this volume, and it feels like they had to speed up the sto [...]

    Volume 2 puts focus on the political element but also expands on the various factions involved in the story, all of whose loyalties and agendas are shrouded in mystery, not to mention the fact that it s unclear how much of what they believe to be true is true Although the series was canceled, Cornell does reveal the answer to at least one major mystery and provide a somewhat satisfying ending to the series.

    A perfect mix of the paranoia, fun, and strangeness of UFO stories with a backhanded look at our manufactured, image driven political process that was thought provoking and thrilling at the same time Saucer Country was largely overlooked, and has unfortunately ended The story arc concludes, but there is so much fertile ground left that could be covered I hope it finds new life from another publisher or Kickstarter

    West wing meets humanoidit Nokkelaa ja ironista ufomeemien py rityst Harmi, ett sarja lopetettiin ennen aikojaan.

    Meer politiek, minder ufoisme maar al met al als strip niet buitenaards genoeg Wel inventief en vermakelijk.

    An extremely disappointing ending Makes me wonder if the entire story was a planned bait and switch, even despite it being cut short.
