Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly’s excellent UFO series, previously published by Vertigo, returns next year at IDW.
Back in 2013, Vertigo cancelled the excellent UFO series Saucer Country by Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly after 14 issues. Cornell at the time wrote on his blog about the Hugo-nominated series:
“I know that’ll disappoint our loyal audience. So I make this promise to you: I will, one day, finish Saucer Country, in one way or another, in a dramatically satisfying way. That is to say, I won’t just put up the remainder of the plot on my blog or something, I’ll find a professional means to actually complete the story, ideally in comic book form, or as a novel or, hey, go on, a movie. The rights revert to me reasonably soon. We’ll work from there.”
