    One thought on “Resident Alien Volume 3: The Sam Hain Mystery”

    1. The series featuring an alien doctor/detective continues to be fun. The format for the volumes is great, it is basically a classic murder mystery but if features an alien on earth as the protagonist. There is a slower bigger story going on with Harry our alien about his backstory and goal to stay in hiding. I have to say the backstory arch is pretty slow, i wish they would infuse a bit more. The thing about this series is there isn't anything really like it and to incorporate a classic murder my [...]

    2. Well, I'm not sure how to begin with this one. This is the 3rd collected volume of this series and I doubt anyone would be looking at it unless you've read the other two. In which case you'd already know how good this series is. It takes a real quality of storytelling skill to maintain a readers interest for only four issues a year, but that's what these three volumes amount to. On the other hand Resident Alien would make a perfect TV series. Kind of Twin Peaks meets House, M.D. meets My Favorit [...]

    3. I love the "Resident Alien" series more with each volume. The government is starting to close in on our favorite alien doctor but aren't found him just yet. I appreciate the author taking the time to let the net slowly get smaller and smaller.The good doctor loves mystery/spy novels and finds out that one of his favorite authors may live/have lived in his town. Little does he know his efforts to find this long, lost author will uncoverwait for itMURDER! Bum bum bummmmmmmm!I love all of the chara [...]

    4. I really really love this series. I love the doctor more and more and I love Asta more and more. I've said it before, but it has a lot of depth and I love that.

    5. What becomes more noticeable as Resident Alien develops is the larger narrative threads bring all of arcs together. In this volume we learn more about the authorities searching for Harry, as well as his possible life back on his home planet. These facets, nestled on top of the overt mystery to be solved in each volume, makes for narrative depth you may not find in other crime ongoing series.

    6. There's something really special about these Resident Alien books. It's very much a slow burn, there's an overall story building with the Federal Agents slowly closing in on Harry, but in the meantime it has almost a Twin Peaks feel, with the small town mysteries.This volume embraces the pulpy noir detective adventures, Harry once again getting dragged into a murder, but one very different from his previous.Harry is such a likeable character, he has this quiet solitude that is really tragic at t [...]

    7. This vol goes deeper into our wonderful alien friend's home world and his progression of adapting to his new home. I love the relationships between all the cast members from Patience and how they all interact and relate. I can't wait to dive into the next chapter and see what happens with those seeking him out, those protecting him, and those who end up on the wrong side of his quick wit and observations!

    8. Pros: Great mystery and interesting characters. I like the pacing and the interactions. Cons: A bit confusing for someone who hadn't read the others but not too much. Seems like it might not be too interesting to teens.

    9. I love the way that, though it's a sequence of miniseries which usually centre on a suspicious death, this comic ticks along with such a gentle, small-town feel - cosy crime meets Area 51.

    10. Calling this a mystery is a bit of a misnomer, and the titular alien is more human than most, but this is another delightful entry into this deeply enjoyable series.
