What I thought of Wild’s End: The Enemy Within #2

Thoughts about #1.

We pick this issue up with Clive being questioned by the pair of science fiction writers we met in the first issue of this splendid twist on the alien invasion story by Dan Abnett.

There’s a nice growing sense or paranoia in these pages as the survivors of the first series are question one by one, and there’s also a nice echo of the paranoia over things like the Iraq War, not to mention the callous insensitivity of the the security services.

All throughout the questioning the survivors keep making the point the invaders could come back at any moment, or indeed, there could be more coming to attack them and they’d not even notice it. Sadly for them, this is the case.

After eventually deciding to let Fawkes the poacher let an army expedition to the landing site, the others take the opportunity to make their escape, not before they encounter Cornfelt who apart from being Susan’s ex-husband has also been detained by the military after realising he was lying about who exactly wrote his books. In fact his ex-wife did.

This issue really makes it clear that the threat isn’t just alien, but that the paranoia is building up slowly to panic and that nothing good is going to come to it, not to mention our main main cast face an uncertain fate at the hands of the British military and the invaders….
