Goodreads Synopsis: 
When a white orb washes up on the shore of a remote Latin American village, a group of children poke at the strange object to see what it is. The orb explodes, leaving the children completely blind. And when a beautiful young woman who may be an alien is found wandering the seafront, she’s taken in by the townspeople, but soon becomes a person of interest to a pair of CIA agents, and the target of affection for a young scientist.

Collecting: The Twilight Children 1-4
I am so confused... but the art was beautiful and vibrant. Small village life is derailed by the appearance of a giant floating light orb and the residents are trying to figure out what it is. There is a scientist, some CIA, maybe an alien, and a bunch of townspeople that all get in the way. I am so confused about this plot and what was going on - there was a wife that was sleeping around that seemed to have something to do with it but in the end really didn't - but I am still not completely sure about that. That all being said I really liked the art and the depiction of the town and the residents it was very vibrant and the paneling was done well to show off the village, beach, and town. I give this 3/5 because the art was on point but the rest was just all over the place - I am not sure why the orbs were there, who was a alien, and what was going on...
