In this graphic novel, meteors bring more than space rocks. Alden, a teenager is watching a meteor shower on his family farm when one crashes into his property. Inquisitive, he encounters an alien and soon the government and the whole world gets involved. It is the classic tale of humans fearing the unknown. This reads like a story from the fifties or sixties and not in a bad way. I enjoyed the story and the illustrations enhanced it. The twist at the end makes one think. This can be enjoyed by young and mature readers alike.
On a summer night, Alden Baylor sits in a field watching the largest meteor shower in human history. What begins as teenage adventure becomes something more--the celestial event brings travelers who will change the world completely, and Alden discovers a connection to one of them.
How does a young man who had to grow up fast handle the invasion of his planet? Can Alden keep humanity from oblivion? From writer Jeff Parker (AQUAMAN, HULK) and artist Sandy Jarrell (BATMAN 66) comes this story of adolescence, friendship, and hard decisions.
