Arcadia Alvarado, the leading Democratic candidate for President of the United States, says she was 'abducted by aliens.' As the Mexican-American Governor of New Mexico, she's dealing with immigration, budget cuts and an alcoholic ex. She's about to toss her hat into the ring as a candidate for President in the most volatile political climate ever. But then...a lonely road and a nightmarish encounter have left her with terrible, half-glimpsed memories. And now she has to become President. To expose the truth--and maybe, to save the world. Arcadia's quest is at the heart of this new title from writer Paul Cornell (DEMON KNIGHTS, ACTION COMICS, Doctor Who) and artist Ryan Kelly (NEW YORK FIVE, NORTHLANDERS, Local). With the help of her quirky staff, Arcadia will pursue the truth of her abduction into danger, mystery and awe. Saucer Country is a dark thriller that blends UFO lore and alien abduction with political intrigue, all set in the hauntingly beautiful Southwest.… (mais)

Intriguing premise and definitely a strong start (even if it's a little too layered with "I've got a secret!" characters and almost too many antagonists compared to the protagonists herein. Still, solid enough that I want ot read the next collection. ( )

My friend Mac Tonnies would have either loved our hated this comic, passionately. Me, I'm admiring the ideas more than the execution (though the art is pretty great). ( )

Amazingly weird doings set around a new Mexican Governor's campaign for the presidency, complicated by the candidate's unexpected abduction by aliens. She resolves to keep her experience secret, but intends to use the power of high office to discover the truth and prepare for a possible alien invasion. This is an awesome comic, even though unfortunately the series was cut short, there is one more volume which hardly seems enough to develop and conclude the ideas set up here, but what the heck, bring it on.

This is another one of the Hugo nominated graphic novels and it is something I don't think I would have read otherwise. The author is trying to work within the UFO mythos while at the same time telling the reader that it is all wrong and humans can't process it at all. The story seems well written but it just wasn't my cup of tea. ( )

Paul Cornell takes us to New Mexico, where the governor has just announced her candidacy for President, and at the same time she and her husband are mixed up in a peculiar incident of apparent alien abduction. It isn't utterly dissimilar to his London Falling, which also has establishment figures from unusual backgrounds (his varied police squad) having to deal with the unexpectedly sfnal in their work.

Cornell deconstructs the lore of UFOlogy entertainingly (largely through a massive infodump in the last of the six issues collected here, issued by a character who talks to the Pioneer plaque people); meanwhile sinister political forces which want to bring down the governor are at least partly aware of what is going on, and conspiracies simmer. It's good fun. ( )
