    One thought on “Meteor Men”

    1. Meteors containing aliens crash on Earth. Are these extra-terrestrials peaceful or hostile? They’re actually peaceful but the US Military knows one goddamn thing – it’s got some goddamn missiles and it’s gonna goddamn use them!As everyone freaks out about an alien invasion that isn’t happening because the aliens are too busy walking on air (literally!) as if they’re stoned superheroes who’ve just figured out their powers, one alien befriends lonely American teen Alden Baylor, a kid [...]

    2. 'Meteor Men' is a perfect story for the graphic novel format. It's mystery and wonder are perfect for this medium. Some slight spoilers follow.Alden Baker lives on his deceased parent's farm until he's old enough to own it. On the night of the Perseid meteor shower, he and others are out in the pasture to observe it. Along with the shower, meteors crash on Earth, including not far from where he is. A fight ensues over who owns the meteor, but what are they really and why did so many land? The my [...]

    3. There is nothing remarkable about the story or artwork for Meteor Men, except possibly its consistent blandness. Aliens come to earth in a meteor shower and co-opt human bodies for their use. Fairly typical or at least as typical as sci-fi can be and certainly more than a little boring. The most interesting parts of the story are brief tidbits about Alden Baylor’s history and previously mundane life. Yes, that’s right; the mundane parts are about as exciting as it gets. The author appears to [...]

    4. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.5 of 5It is books like Meteor Men that have restored my faith in the graphic novel as a literary form.  This book is beautiful to look at and delightful to read.  To me, this is precisely what the graphic novel medium is intended to be.  I know that the bulk of the graphic novels out there are compilations of superhero comic books, but the more I've been reading lately, the more I really appreciate the non-superhero graphic [...]

    5. This is a strong piece of pure science fiction (something I don't come across often enough these days). Aliens arrive on Earth during a meteor storm and the author brings a mature variation on the alien invasion theme. I found this to be a quick read and a story I was quickly hooked on. Usually when aliens arrive on earth one of two things happen: the aliens are bad and earth has to find the elusive way to kill them or the friendly, peace-loving aliens are misunderstood by the bad army/governmen [...]

    6. One night during the Perseid meteor shower, thousands of meteorites make contact all over planet Earth. One of those meteorites crashes in the farm of young Alden Baylor. After investigating, he makes contact with an alien that came down inside the meteorite. What does the alien want? Is it peaceful? These and many more questions are ones that both Alden and the world's ever-twitchy and defensive governments and militaries would like answered. It's not the best alien invasion story I've read but [...]

    7. This title was originally brought to my attention by the artist whom I met at Heroes Con months before the book was published. After he heard I was a librarian he showed me a copy and thought it would be good for teens. Fast forward two years later and ComiXology has it on their unlimited service!This was a quick read; I almost finished it in one sitting. For the most part it feels like a typical "boy meets alien" story. The last bit of the 4th issue makes it stand out a little bit and definitel [...]

    8. Ok so this was just weird, and not my cup of tea. But I'm sure plenty of others will enjoy it. This was just the weirdest alien species premise ever! They look like octopi but then morph and completely cover their host living being (usually a human) so they end up looking like humans just with big heads. Anyway, it never was adequately explained why Alden was connected to the aliens when no one else was, and I was confused as to why some people could hear the aliens thoughts and then later only [...]

    9. It's always nice to discover a new, original science fiction comic and this one has something rare: a grounded story with a satisfying twist. The art is a good fit with the somewhat contemplative mood of the narrative while also delivering strong action sequences. In short, I wish there were more comics like this.

    10. This was fine. For me, the characters were a little on the shallow side and the plot a little thin, a little typical, but it was still entertaining and the art was cool and: ALIENS! I think this would be a great comic for younger sci-fi readers.

    11. Boring to read. I didn't fully finish it because it was hard to get through. It had potential to be good sci-fi, but failed.

    12. A not so unusual premise handled in a unique way. This is a nice sci-fi story that actually made me think!

    13. One of the reviews on the back of the book called this an "optimistic" story, which I don't particularly see. I suppose that's an Earth-centric view; if you step outside of humanity and look at the story from the wider universe's perspective, or from that of the alien invaders, there's certainly a sense of community. But at what cost? The conclusion seems to be that humans don't really deserve to maintain our hold on this planet when our instinct is to destroy the unusual rather than attempting [...]

    14. My son picked this up at the library on a whim. Three hours later he told me "you've GOT to read this!!". He was right, it was a great story about a kid who has a meteor land in his back yard. I have a tendency to be very linear in my reading: I read these authors and these series in order but, my son broke me out of that with this book. Indie comic company called ONI Press made it. Definitely worth checking out their stuff.

    15. Would you think less of this if I tell you that while I was reading it--in the back of my head--I kept thinking of The Host? *face palm*Anyway, this was a super quick read, and I never felt that I quite connected with the characters. The art helped me through, but something wasn't quite there for me.

    16. I know this was published well before The Girl With All the Gifts, but it is very much that kind of book. Except instead of hungries it has aliens. It's neat.

    17. A very satisfying read. Although I enjoy most of Jeff Parker's books I always prefer it when he deviates from the super-hero malaise of the larger body of his work and just tells a really good sci-fi, mystery, or adventure story. Underground, Interman, and Meteor Men are great examples of this. Great characters, art, and solid storytelling make this (and the others) a strong reccommendation. Check this one out, you won't be disappointed.

    18. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/Meteor Men is a beautifully presented, engaging, and sophisticated graphic novel featuring a perfect marriage of story and art. I was greatly reminded of the movie "The Iron Giant" due to this title's distinct style, sense of adventure and wonder, underlying message, and appeal for both children and adults. If but for a somewhat abrupt ending, this would be a perfect title.Story: When a group of kids go outside to see a yearly meteor [...]

    19. Pretty straightforward alien landing/only the kid knows what's up story (and largely drawn/written with similar straightforwardness) but reminded me a lot of Arrival by the end, in that it suddenly became something very uniquely special and genuinely touching/thought-provoking toward the very end.

    20. I can't really pinpoint exactly what it is about Meteor Men that I liked, even though I've been thinking about for a little over a day now. If I had to take a guess, I'd say it's the fact that this graphic novel captured my imagination. I'm sure we've all had moments where we wonder if we're alone in the universe. Where we truly debate what would happen if we weren't. More than anything, I felt like this story was something different from tales of aliens I've read previously, and I appreciated t [...]

    21. Meteor Men freaked me out. I thought that someone had given me a time-turner to the 1970’s or I was witnessing a Roswell episode, yet with this time not really having aliens do that well at blending in: It was like watching one of those classic alien shows, that you want to click off, but you’re intrigued so you keep watching. IF my teen self had of met that, there would be no “oh” there would be an “AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!” But no, he gives us an “Oh.” Anyway, it’s quite entertaining [...]

    22. Beginning with a group of young adults watching a meteor shower, I immediately knew Meteor Men was going to be both familiar and different. The expected dialog between teens ensues, with one teen (the underage owner of a rather large farm) standing out as a bit of a loner; forced to grow up before his time by the death of his parents, we meet our young protagonist Alden.Quickly we come to realize this was no ordinary meteor shower, and Alden ends up being the sort-of-owner of one of these myster [...]

    23. *Got this free from netgalley in exchange for honest review*A meteor-type disembarked in Alden's field property. It was like how Superman came to earth, but ofcourse in this book the aliens weren't hot and handsome guys like Clark Kent. They were like classic big-head aliens. The meteor was empty, but an alien inside had already gone somewhere. It wasn't only happened in Alden's property, but also around the world. The aliens threatened people, a war happened. But one alien was connected with Al [...]

    24. This graphic novel by comic book veterans Jeff Parker (Aquaman, Hulk) and Sandy Jarrell (Batman '66) is geared to the young adult market. Teenager Alden Baylor is watching a meteor shower when he encounters alien. It's a life-changing experience for him as he learns why aliens would visit Earth and deals with interfering adult authority figures.The adults seem more realistically portrayed than does a teen such as Alden. The book is far-fetched beyond the possible idea of aliens (if you are an al [...]

    25. Trending high on the 'it's been done before – just not like this' scale is this comic, which has a great simplicity to it – and in a good way. Alden kind-of owns a farm, even though he's only at secondary school, when a meteorite lands at the start of the Perseid shower. While he also owns that, the local scientist wants it for the planetarium, and science might be the winner – but the rock has secrets beyond science. When it's found to have burst open, there is a chance that something has [...]

    26. Jeff Parker, Sandy Jarrell, and Kevin Vold team up for a unique look at the worlds beyond our stars. Teenaged orphan Alden Baylor is enjoying a meteor viewing party with classmates. When one crashes onto his acreage, Alden's professors light up at the possibility of fame, fortune, and scientific grandeur. Alden finds himself feeling more alone - until he encounters a strange being that came from the cracked rock. Caught up in a groundswell of fear and curiosity as the alien makes its presence kn [...]

    27. Meteor Men, by Jeff Parker, Sandy Jarrell, and Kevin Volo, is essentially a first contact/alien invasion story focusing on a lonely teen, Alden Baylor. Alden is an orphan, and when a series of strange meteors strike the planet, Alden finds one of them in a field he inherited when his parents passed away. It doesn't take long for Alden to figure out that there's more to the meteors than most people thought, and for the government to start investigating the reports of strange beings showing up acr [...]

    28. The most low key alien invasion story ever, Jeff Parker and Sandy Jarrell's Meteor Men is just as much a coming of age story as it is an invasion story. While watching the Perseid meteor shower on his family's farm, orphaned 16 year old Alden Baylor comes in to contact with a meteorite that crashes nearby and it's surprising inhabitant. What follows is an interesting story of acceptance and fear as the world begins to realize what exactly happened that night. Freed from the constraints of writin [...]
