War Of The Worlds: Second Wave #1

*** 1/2 (out of five)

Reaction No. 1 to hearing Boom! Studios was unveiling a new monthly comic based on last year’s War Of The Worlds: No… more… Tom… Cruise!
Thankfully the actor formerly known as Maverick isn’t the star of this new book and it’s actually pretty decent. Written by Michael Alan Nelson and illustrated by Chee, this first issue is basically a recap with a new man, referred to only as Miles, in place of Cruise. It’s mainly just a setup for the catchphrase of the series: “The second wave landed on a Tuesday.”
Whether or not this batch of aliens thought to get their flu shots before invading remains to be seen, but there’s certainly plenty of hopeful signs this series could be a good one.
