About the Book:

This book presents two separate stories, both are very well done.  The first one is about a couple driving at night, which is a common time for most alien sightings, another is set in the 1800’s and talks about a tragedy with an elephant, but more specifically is about a sighting of a flying creature in the year 1889.

Reviewer’s Notes:

Project Blue book, is a phrase that is synonymous with extraterrestrial.  Everyone knows about it, as it is a government program that was started with a semi mysterious event that happened in Roswell, New Mexico.

This book is something that goes down a similar trail.  Dealing with stories from real life perspective and presented in comic form.  Being that I have always had a fascinating interest in the extraterrestrial.

Both stories are a wonderful collaboration of the mind and interests of James Tyrion as well as non-fiction encounters.  If you are interested in extraterrestrial life at all then this book series is definitely something to up and take a look at!

The cover art is eye-catching and imposing at the same time, showing what is commonly known as the grey alien archetype.  Which is the most common visage.  It is definitely something that sparks interest in the books series itself.

The interior artwork is done in two seperate styles, the first story is done in a 3 tone presentation as it is mostly at night.  Considering the story that is presented, it is done very well to go with the story at hand.  The second story is done in an old style dot fashion, but also fits the story that is presented with the story.  Both stories are presented in a pleasant way that makes the stories easy to follow in the visual presentation.

I see this book leading to a series of individual stories that both enlighten and spark the imagination and interest into the extraterrestrial. Which in my own individual opinion is an interesting topic worth reading!

Growing up in the 80s and 90s I grew up as an eclectic geek, a fact that still holds true today. I grew up watching all the classic cartoons of the 80's and had many an adventures with the toys that went with. Played tabletop RPG's and still enjoy computer gaming as adulting allows. On top of making time to read comics, and spend time with family and friends.
