IDW Publishing To Revive Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly’s Saucer State
Announced at San Diego Comic-Con, this one has me excited. IDW Publishing announced that Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly‘s ongoing comic series Saucer State will be released in June 2017.
Saucer Country, created by Cornell and Kelly, was published by DC/Vertigo and ran for 14 issues. The series has found a new home at IDW Publishing with a new title name, Saucer State.
Saucer Country told the story of Mexican-American Arcadia Alvarado, the former Governor of New Mexico, has been elected President of the United States… and brings with her a veritable closet filled with bizarre skeletons. As Governor, she dealt with immigration, budget cuts and an alcoholic ex. Oh… and she claims to have been “abducted by aliens.” The nightmarish encounter has left her with terrible, half-glimpsed memories and now as President, she’s determined to use her new political powers to expose the truth—and maybe, to save the world.
IDW will release The Complete Saucer Country, a collection of the entire previous series, in a special edition to coincide with the release of Saucer State #1 in Spring 2017.
