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?
A meteor-type disembarked in Alden's field property. It was like how Superman came to earth, but ofcourse in this book the aliens weren't hot and handsome guys like Clark Kent. They were like classic big-head aliens. The meteor was empty, but an alien inside had already gone somewhere. It wasn't only happened in Alden's property, but also around the world. The aliens were threatened people, a war happened. But one alien was connected with Alden. Did they come to destroy the world? Or they had other reason? That was what Alden would discover through the book.
I had never read comic before. It was a different experience than reading a manga (I thought it would be the same!). Reading this comic was like going to a paintings exhibition. The way the story was told through the arts was an artistic experience. The drawings were undoubtly very good. My favorite was the backgrounds! It was very stunning that I wanted to frame it. The colors were also neat and picturesque.
There weren't many characters involved in this story, and most of them were forgetable. It was focussed on Alden and the alien's relationship. It wasn't like a friendship. The alien protected Alden in some incidents. The reason would be uncovered later in the book. It was sore truth, guys.
