Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse are back with the latest chapter of Resident Alien – and it’s all about love.
Presented by Dark Horse Comics, Resident Alien: The Book of Love follows the beloved alien detective Harry on another thrilling ride, as he attempts to move on from the events of the previous volume. Only this time, he attempts to navigate one of the most thrilling journeys of all – love!
As the government agency that was trailing Harry decides to back off, his life in Patience quiets down a little. Harry and Asta grow closer, romance blooms, and guards are let down. Life always has a way of keeping things exciting, and big things can happen in small towns…
