It's the touching tale of an adorable alien who comes to our world and ... wait, wrong story.

Resident Alien chronicles the Earthly misadventures of a stranded extraterrestrial masquerading as a small-town, crime-solving doctor (hey, there are worst day jobs to have while you're awaiting a rescue that may or may not be coming), and he could care less about Reese's Pieces. 

While you're waiting for the original TV series starring Alan Tudyk coming to SYFY in 2021, acquaint yourself with Dark Horse's comic book created by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse. Resident Alien Omnibus Volume 1 chronicles the first three installments of four-issue miniseries that have been on our planet since 2012. It's genuinely out of this world ... and ready to invade your home.
