TIMING 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 and will return in 2017 with the all-new 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.
PAUL CORNELL, WRITER/CO-CREATOR: “I’m hugely delighted that Saucer Country lives again! I’m even more delighted that Ryan Kelly is once again drawing it. And my delight overflows that it’s at such a good home as IDW.”
SAUCER COUNTRY was nominated for a Hugo Award in 2013.
TOM WALTZ, EDITOR: “Anyone who knows Chris Ryall and me, knows we are UFO aficionados to the Nth-degree. When we found out Saucer Country was available, we both started plotting diligently to get it at IDW. And now, as Saucer State, our plans have come true and I couldn’t be more ecstatic to soon be a part of a series I’ve been such a huge fan of it from the first mind-blowing issue!”
RYAN KELLY, ARTIST/CO-CREATOR:
