      I received this book as a GiveawayE GOOD:Awesome Latina protagonist!Artwork is realistic. Characters have distinct facial features, heights, etc, which is helpful given that the majority of the cast are middle-aged white men. Proper anatomy! Huzzah!No excessive sexualization of characters. Nudity/skin shown is logical (character is in shower, nightgown, whatever) and poses are natural, rather than contorted into a pin-up pose. Arcadia dresses like a politician, with a minimum of cleavage. X-fil [...]

    • William Thomas says:

      Paul Cornell went too clever by half here with Saucer Country, whose premise sounds like the most promising new title Vertigo has to offer. However, Cornell's execution leaves everything to be desired and what we are left with after having been grabbed by the synopsis is little more than wacky antics and hallucinatory diatribes. Writing: DArt: C

    • Tyler Kroon says:

      A governor running for president believes she was kidnapped by aliens, and her staff tries to help her piece the clues together while avoiding those trying to ruin her career. Definitely a fun read for those interested in the UFO narrative.

    • Zedsdead says:

      Paul Cornell's horrifying witch tale London Falling was simply terrific. His fantasy comic Demon Knights was awful. A Better Way to Die, his short story contribution to GRRM's anthology Rogues, was uneven, a promising effort that fell flat. The guy is just all over the place.He dekes again by taking what bodes to be a pulpy crapfest of a concept--flying saucers--and somehow crafting from it an intelligent, thoughtful exploration of UFO mythology combined with a fairly shrewd study of an unlikely [...]

    • Shannon Appelcline says:

      I spent much of this comic trying to decide whether I liked this comic or not. I appreciate the characters, and I think the use of political drama is good as a contrast to the science-fiction. However the alien elements of the comic seemed a bit cliched -- which may be the point. I felt like it had started to shape up by the end, when we were focusing more on Arcadia and on figuring out what's going on, and I thought the last issue, with its look at a possible UFO mythology quite good.I'll defin [...]

    • Jenny (Reading Envy) says:

      I wasn't sure what to think of this at first, but by the fourth of six, I was hooked. Alien abduction, Latina presidential candidate, and things are not what they seem. I'd definitely jump to vol. 2 to find out what happens next.

    • 47Time says:

      This is a weird subject, but the execution is pretty good. The dialogue is intelligent and flows nicely, even if the story has a twist that I'm not a fan of: alien abductions are real. Anal probes included.Governor Arcadia Alvarado is running for president of the United States, but her nightmares are haunting her. She and her ex-husband, Michael, think they were abducted by aliens. This needs to be kept secret during the campaign, so Arcadia's staff hires professor Kidd who also believes aliens [...]

      Collects Saucer Country issues #1-6In this graphic novel, a woman with a political background gets abducted by aliens. Believing that, with the right political power, she can fight against the aliens and learn the truth about what happened to her, she decides to run for president.

    • David says:

      The premise has a better storyline than our current political climate.

    • Charles says:

      First Reads Review - Saucer Country Vol 1So I honestly don't know exactly what to make of this. I mean, I like it. The writing and the art are solid, and it's quite weird. But beyond that, I'm not entirely sure what to make of it. I suppose I should explain a bit more than that, though, as DC was nice enough to give me a free copy through First Reads. I guess I signed up for it largely because of Paul Cornell, whom I am a fan of. And in that respect I am not disappointed, only a bit confused bec [...]

      A mix of sci-fi and politics that starts strong but peters out a bit towards the end.Aracadia Alvarado, governor of New Mexico, is destined to be a groundbreaking candidate for president. She's running at time when America's ready to consider a divorced, Latino, pro-immigration woman for president. Except for the fact that she thinks that aliens have abducted her on the eve of the announcement of her candidacy. And thinks that the aliens are the threat to national security.Paul Cornell and Ryan [...]

    • Michael says:

      Paul Cornell legt hier hier eine Graphic Novel vor, die sich mit einem der großen amerikanischen Mythen des 20. Jahrhunderts beschäftigt: Die Entführung durch Außerirdische.Die mexikanisch-stämmige Gouverneurin Arcadia Alvarado will als Präsidentschaftskandidatin kandidieren. Die Chancen für eine Wahl sind ohnehin nicht rosig für sie: eine weibliche, nicht in Amerika geborene Präsidentin mit einem Ex-Mann, der sie mißhandelt hat? Aber dann kommt etwas hinzu, dass eine Wahl vollends unw [...]

      Won this via First Reads.The Democrat Governor of New Mexico, Arcadia Alvarado, who is also running for President of the United States, has a very trippy experience while driving home from a party. Did she and her ex-husband, who was also in the car, get abducted by aliens? Or maybe it was all in their head, all a dream? Or perhaps the truth is somewhere in between the two ideas?Then there's also a former Harvard professor who has two miniature people, a man and a woman who are very naked and hu [...]

    • John Wiswell says:

      A fun, brief story to read in the middle of my X-Files marathon. Saucer Country is the story of a governor and her ex-husband, who believe their "lost time" was an alien abduction. This introductory volume spends half its length setting up all the characters, the politicians who support or undermine her, conspiracy theorists, mad men who might also have been touched by aliens, and one great hulking bodyguard. The governor's core group, of that bodyguard, an elderly strategist who's devoted his l [...]

    • Sonic says:

      My experience of this book vacillated back and forth between "it was ok" and "really liked it" but I must admit that I ended up at "really liked it." The last chapter being a sort of trippy reader of the abduction phenomenon was absolutely fantastic, and the fast and loose (and like I said, "trippy") handling of this material, was itself a kind of explanation for why this was such a perfect way of handling this type of material.I will never forget a conversation that I once had with a friend who [...]

    • Sunil says:

      Saucer Country puts a new spin on aliens by putting the focus on politics. Governor Arcadia Alvarado is set to be the first female, divorced, Hispanic President of the United Statesbut she'd also be the first President who claims to have been abducted by aliens and wants to protect the country from an invasion. Surrounding her are Harry, her supportive Chief of Staff; Chloe, her skeptical campaign strategist; and Professor Kidd, her UFO lore consultant.This first volume spends a lot of time unpa [...]

    • Markus says:

      I have enjoyed a recent Vertigo titles like Scalped and Unwritten, but that last essence of something has been missing. That missing piece is UFOs, but my friend always says 'all you need for good story is Ninjas, explosions and boobs', not those things yet, but you never know. Story revolves around a governor who announces her candidacy for a president of the USA, but has encounter with aliens or something weirder. There is couple groups with hidden agendas, one want's to expose the government [...]

      nwhytevejournal/2085325ml[return][return]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.

    • Crystal says:

      Pretty interesting premise, but then, I was sold on premise before I even picked it up. In case you don't already know, the premise is Arcadia Alvarado, a divorced Latin woman and governor of New Mexico is deciding to run for president, and oh ya, something about aliens, actual dun-dun-dun flying saucer aliensIn any case, the first issue wasn't mind-blowing, probably mostly because the narrative is broken up a bit between what looks like a couple of different storylines, each with its own protag [...]

    • Travis says:

      Pretty much any book from DC's Vertigo interests me since they cover territory you won't find anywhere else. Still, the first book of any new series needs to do an excellent job of hooking me to continue, though. Saucer Country's first volume has plenty of intriguing ideas and memorable scenes. Enough is given to the reader to get one thinking without revealing everything. It almost feels like an unreliable narrator except it's not first person. And like any good alien abduction story, you're le [...]

      New Mexicon demokraattikuvernööri Arcadia Alvarado ilmoittaa ryhtyvänsä kandidaatiksi kun seuraavaa presidenttiä valitaan. Alvarado on nainen, eronnut ja latino, sekä hänen suvustaan löytyy Yhdysvaltoihin laittomasti muuttaneita muukalaisia - aikamoinen takamatka kenelle tahansa USA:n presidenttiydestä haaveilevalle, mutta siinä vaiheessa homma alkaa käydä mielenkiintoiseksi kun mieleen alkaa nousta hämäriä muistoja avaruusolentojen suorittamasta sieppauksesta.Paul Cornellin käsi [...]

    • David Mcangus says:

      This first trade reminded me a lot of John Michael Greer's UFO book: 'UFO Phenomenon: Fact, Fantasy and Disinformation'. It explores the various theories relating to the UFO mythology and seems to settle on a similar mystical perspective. Some readers who aren't already versed in this may find the information a bit overwhelming and therefore damaging to the story. But the creators try to lessen this by offering a well balanced cast to reflect the different reactions a reader might have. Due to a [...]

    • John says:

      As a resident of New Mexico, I was attracted to this title since it contained some elements of reality concerning our state. We do have a Hispanic female governor, although she is a Republican, not a Democrat, and of course, the Roswell incident and alien encounters are a major part of local folklore. Unfortunately, this is one of those volumes that seems to be all set up for much more complex plotting to come. We are introduced to some intriguing characters, and some interesting concepts, and w [...]

    • James Sorensen says:

      Disclaimer: I won this book as part of the first-read program.Arcadia Alvarado, a Latina, is the Governor of New Mexico and is also the leading Democratic Candidate for the U.S. Presidency. And she has been abducted by aliens. This is Volume #1 in an interesting Graphic Novel series with very good graphics and an interesting story but I'm not sure I'd buy Volume #2. She becomes involved with a Harvard UFO-ologist, who might be crazy and a duplicitous Doctor that will violate her confidence in o [...]

    • Alex Sarll says:

      The female, Hispanic Governor of New Mexico runs for President - and you could consider that plot enough, what with the awkward ex-husband and the Tea Party types determined to bring her down - but on top of that, she's had an alien abduction experience. Except it's already been strongly implied that they're not anything so simple as little grey men from another planet - I suspect we're headed into Grant Morrison territory here, with aliens as a visitation from the cosmic overmind. Cornell seems [...]

    • Norman Cook says:

      A divorced, latina running for president? Definitely science fiction. Seriously, this volume, which collects the first six issues of Saucer Country, sets up an interesting situation. Did Arcadia Alvarado really get abducted by bug-eyed grey aliens who anally probed her? I trust that popular writer Paul Cornell has something a bit more clever in mind than these overused tropes; there are certainly hints that there is more than meets the eye. Unfortunately, as with many serialized comic books, the [...]

    • Andy says:

      You think you know where this is going, but you really don't. At least I didn't. New Mexico governor Arcadia Alvarado is early into her presidential campaign when she begins to suspect she was recently abducted by aliens. Alvarado is convinced that she must become President in order to help prevent an alien invasion.Sounds pretty silly, right? And it definitely sounds like something you've seen before. But it isn't. I'm going to have to re-read this one soon because it so completely goes where I [...]

    • Geoff Sebesta says:

      This book should have been a blog post. The comics format does not do much for it.Now that I'm rating it, I'm really surprised this is volume one. I was assuming that I had missed something and was trying to decipher the story.I'm not disagreeing with this guy about his ideas about UFOs, I find them cogent and lucid. But this is not an exciting story. There is an entire chapter that's basically about watching a TED Talk. A wide variety of characters are introduced and not much happens with any o [...]

    • Cale says:

      I lost track of this as a monthly, but it works better collected. A Hispanic divorced governor of New Mexico is planning to run for President, but she's got a big secret - she thinks she was abducted by aliens. The story does not play out as you would expect, and all of the characters are interesting and deep. Everyone seems to recognize just how close to the edge the story is, and plays it accordingly. There are lots of twists and turns and political maneuvering, and separate organizations with [...]

    • Crystal says:

      Hm. Still liking it enough but I feel like so far it's all peas and potatoes. Seems like the meat is gonna take a few more issues. I still don't care about any of the characters and the plot is a bit watery; that is, the story doesn't really stay with you.Merged review:I'm still sort of "meh" on this one. It seemed so promising so I'm clinging to that, and there is certainly still some room for some interesting things to happen -- I mean, for crissakes, we're talking aliens showing up in odd pla [...]
