"For the first time ever, legendary comics creators Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) and Darwyn Cooke (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER) have joined forces for a surreal project unlike anything you've ever read before! When a white orb washes up on the shore of a remote Latin American village, a group of children naturally 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 quirky pair of undercover CIA agents, and the target of affection for a young scientist. Can they come together to prevent an all-out alien invasion and save the souls in this sleepy, seaside town? Collects THE TWILIGHT CHILDREN #1-4 of the four-issue miniseries"--

The co-creators share a widescreen cinematic storytelling sense, which results in some nice sequences. (The story, however...) A bonus section of production sketches by Hernandez at the end shows Cooke's contributions included making all the characters significantly more attractive!

Fantasy themed, garish colours, cartoonish child-like characters, silly juvenile story.

I feel like this had all the elements needed to be good, but completely failed to capitalize on them.

Good art, interesting setup...and a story that, in the end, does nothing and means nothing. Disappointing.
