On Inauguration Day, newly elected President Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and a failing health care system. But in a letter penned by the outgoing President, Blades learns the truth that redefines “critical”: seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close – assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination.
Today, President-elect Blades has become the most powerful man on the planet. This planet.
This comic starts when the new President of the USA, Stephen Blades, finds a letter in his new desk from the previous president about a secret space mission. He does everything he can to get involved and tries not to forget the changes he had in mind before. On the spaceship, we find a group of people eager to discover what the alien construction is.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t really connect with the characters. I couldn’t memorize any names and the story didn’t grip me. It was not for me.
The plot was well thought but I just couldn’t get into it.
I won’t be continuing the series.
