Resident Alien: Suicide Blonde #0 Review: Back in the Game

Fans of Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse’s under the radar, but über cool “Resident Alien” series can finally breathe easy.

Harry is back and the drama in Patience is only beginning.

After the events in the series’ first run, the comic’s newest adventure, “Suicide Blonde” gets started quickly. In recovery from a gunshot wound, Harry spends issue #0 more in reminiscence than action. Regardless, the thorough backstory shed on the intriguing character, Hogan’s intimate writing and Parkhouse’s signature art make the latest addition to the series instantly comfortable to returning readers.

While this issue is more a tease and setup for what is to come, the drama thickens in issue #0. Harry’s insistence to stay in Patience plays an equally as important role as the goings on of his nurse, Asta. More than a supporting character, her will and strength look to be tested this go around. How that will affect the series moving forward remains to be seen, but it makes things different.

Harry, too, looks to face his own enemies as the government begins to look closer into the events that culminated with his arrival on Earth. With trouble looming, the eventual collision of multiple storylines looks to be a feast for the eyes and mind.
