Strange Skies Over East Berlin Reviews
The first issue, written by Jeff Loveness, starts out with an American spy named Herring helping several people escape out of East Berlin in 1973. Just as they are about to climb over the wall, they’re spotted by Soviet guards and they try to get away. One of the escapees gets shot and others get captured by the guards.
Picking up right where the first issue ended, Strange Skies Over East Berlin #2 sees Herring meeting Russian Inspektor Keiner and imagining being revealed as a spy leading to his imprisonment by the Soviets. Herring wonders if the man spotted him the other night or was too distracted by what flew over the Wall to even pay attention.
Strange Skies Over East Berlin #3 starts out with Herring, tied to a chair in the corner, being interrogated by Keiner. The Soviet officer knows who he is as he already spoke to the other people that Herring tried to help back at the wall. Herring tries all he can to deny this accusation as Keiner wants to know what his purpose is in there.
With the alien wanting to escape the base, Herring must stop it before it can harm anyone outside. When the spy comes upon a dying Anzhela, she reveals that she had suspected Herring from the beginning. While disgusted by his offering to help her, Anzhela informs Herring where he can find more weapons and to blow up the tunnels so as to kill the alien. With Anzhela dead, Herring goes back to the armory and a long the way his fear and doubts continues to grow.
