First published in 1999 and revived last year, Michael Cherkas and Larry Hancock’s The Silent Invasion, is back with another revised volume of the original material. Filtered through the lens of period anti-communist witch hunts, alien flying saucers, and loopy cult conspiracies, The Silent Invasion is a byzantine sci-fi mystery/thriller that stylishly recreates 1950s middle class America in all its kooky, paranoid glory. In this 13-page preview, dogged reporter Matt Sinkage is on the run from mysterious forces, determined to uncover the truth about an alien invasion he believes is getting ever closer to the White House. The Silent Invasion: The Great Fear Vol. 2 by Michael Cherkas and Larry Hancock will be published this month by NBM.
