Harry returns to Patience in 300-plus page collection
Dark Horse Books returns to the small town of Patience, Washington in the Resident Alien Omnibus Volume 2. Written by Peter Hogan (2000 AD, Tom Strong) with art, colors and lettering by Steve Parkhouse (War Birds, Milkman Murders), this omnibus collects the Resident Alien graphic novels Volumes 4 through 6: The Man with No Name, An Alien in New York, and Your Ride’s Here, along with the Free Comic Book Day 2022 short story “The Ghost.” The beloved comics are the inspiration for the hit SYFY series Resident Alien, starring Alan Tudyk as Harry Vanderspeigle.
A stranded alien explorer—hiding in plain sight—has been posing as a doctor and solving crimes in the small town of Patience, Washington. After Harry accidentally reveals himself to investigators who are on his trail, a mysterious arsonist and a stubborn federal agent arrive in town to heat things up! The local sheriff must decide if he’ll remain loyal to his inquisitive friend Harry, and nurse Asta finally realizes the danger she and Harry are both in.
The Resident Alien Omnibus Volume 2 trade paperback will be in bookstores May 16, 2023 and comic book shops May 17th, 2023. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore. The Resident Alien Omnibus Volume 2 will retail for $29.99.
