The final cut off for orders are today for MIDNIGHT VISTA #2, so for any retailers and readers on the fence, we have a four-page preview for you to check out below thanks to AfterShock Comics.

About the issue:
It’s the news story of the century! Oliver Flores – the kid on the face of every milk carton in New Mexico – has been found.

Recovering at the hospital, Oliver is finally able to reveal where he’s been for the last nineteen years: Along with his stepfather, he was abducted by aliens. And the only real problem with that is…no one believes him. Not the detectives from his case, not the doctors who treated him, not even his biological dad. They’re all convinced Oliver is suffering from massive trauma.

Meanwhile, no one seems to notice the suspicious Strangers in Black trying to silence Oliver for good.

Based on a true story from writer Eliot Rahal (HOT LUNCH SPECIAL), with out-of-this-world art from Clara Meath, MIDNIGHT VISTA will make you believe in little grey men.

MIDNIGHT VISTA is a science-fiction drama from AfterShock Comics about a young boy who gets abducted by aliens, is brought back as an adult and remembers everything. Although the story itself is a fictional meditation on alien abduction, the series was inspired by the writer’s (Eliot Rahal) real-life close encounter.

Now, Rahal will release an extended one-shot podcast that explores the non-fictional aspect of his experience, which will include edited interviews from Eliot’s stepfather, mother, and himself. The recording will be free to download through a QR code that will be included in the trade paperback for Volume 1 of MIDNIGHT VISTA.

MIDNIGHT VISTA was created by Clara Meath and Eliot Rahal, with colors by Mark Englert and letters by Taylor Esposito.
