A thought provoking look at what would happen if life was found on another planet.

We will never visit a planet that has Aliens on it. However, half a movie was made with Americans finding new Alien life on another planet? We would ask them about free energy, other planets with Aliens, show me your car, how old are you, do you want to visit Earth and a million other questions. I would also answer any questions they asked since this is only a movie. What will America do when they don’t find alien life on another planet? We will write a letter to our president and tell him that we would like to visit other planets and see if any Aliens are there

Will Eisner wrote in July, 2000: "This wa. n attempt to produce a graphic novel that was constructed in the same structure as a classic literary work. By taking what would be a science-fiction plot and treating it from a more humanistic viewpoint, I hoped to come up with a book that would deserve adult interest.

I hate to review a book so negatively but this current edition (W.W. Norton, 2018) is truly awful. The pages look out of focus, the ink is faded, and you can SEE PIXELATION similar to a low quality image file. I am truly shocked that someone could butcher an artist's work so thoroughly and still have the gall to sell it for $19. I ordered one copy from a third party seller and didn't know what to think. Was this a poor copy of an Eisner book? I returned it and ordered a new copy straight from Amazon which is just as bad. Such a disrespectful reproduction of Eisner's work.

Makes you wonder about people. I get the feeling that this is what would have actually happen - or will actually happen; if it haven't happened already. Am I making sense? Makes you really wonder about the selfishness that drives all of us.

Eisner's graphic novels are a joy to read. His drawings, insight and dialog are brilliant. I would highly recommend his books to anyone into graphic novels, or anyone just plain interested in fascinating reading. The book arrived quickly and was packaged very protectively. Highly recommend!

This story is not really about life on another planet, but on how the idea of life (Once it's confirmed and not just a vague idea) on another planet will affect our global society. Specifically it seems to focus on those elements which will attempt to exploit the news. From the third world dictator who secedes from the planet, to the Heaven's Gate style cultist who sees a quick buck to be made. This books gives some all too human reactions to what might happen if/when such news breaks on the world. Remember this is all happening before an alien is actually seen. It is about the psychological impact of the news, not lasers and spaceships.

It's like a 60's science fiction movie. Will Eisner's science here is awful. There are spelling mistakes (Bernard, Barnard) and basic terminology mistakes (year, light-year) BUT his human interactions are amazing, and his panel breakdowns are the best (at least most complex) out of any his stuff that I've seen. (I haven't had the opportunity to read many of his later Spirit stories.) His best work is to be found elsewhere (check out his brand-new full-length hardcover book from DC for a trip), but this book is certainly good. Lots of intrigue, politics, spies, murders, humor, and that's where he shines. And it's pretty cheap, so check it out!

A signal comes in from space. Are we alone? Full of espionage, intrigue and classic Will Eisner art, this is a gem for any collection, and great reading in graphic novel format (from the father of graphic novels). Two thumbs up on this one.
