Dark Horse have posted an interview with writer Peter Hogan about Resident Alien, which launches today with issue #0.
Hogan talks of his ideas behind lead character Harry and his experience working with artist Steve Parkhouse:
“[Harry is] the ultimate outsider, and outsiders by definition make good observers. The fact that Harry has more sensitivity than a regular human being—he receives more information, if you like—means that it’s a little bit like sticking a god in a small town. Most people are pretty transparent to him…but he’s also fallible. Sometimes he gets it wrong…
Steve provided the initial impetus, in that he wanted to work on something involving an alien, and this is the story that I eventually came up with. Beyond that it’s largely been a case of me winging it and Steve encouraging me, though I’m sure he’s also probably told me which aspects of it he’s really liked, and I’ve probably developed them more because of that.”
