This Spoils the Ending
In the Comic Book In the TV Show
   The mayor is his early 60's and single. The mayor is late 20's, early 30's. Married with a young son named Max.
   The people looking for Harry are not violent. But one of the agents does drug a nurse to gain entry to a house and spy on Harry. Two of General McCallister's civilian agents, David and Lisa, arrive in Patience to investigate. They talk to a man who saw Harry in his alien form when he was traveling towards Colorado shortly after his crash. Lisa murders the man and steals the manuscript of the book he was writing about the encounter.
   Asta's ex is not abusive after she leaves him. Harry does not appear to be stronger than humans. Asta is confronted by her ex-husband; he starts beating her. Harry comes to her rescue, beating him up severely by punching through a house wall and choking him. Asta stops Harry from killing her ex.
   Asta eventually feels there is something unusual about Harry and tells her father. Her father (a shaman) talks to Asta in her dreams to say that Harry is an alien and being chased. Asta's father is not a shaman and does not appear in Asta's dreams. Dan works at a diner.
   Harry's ship is found right away after the crash. They have not located Harry yet although they do have several video and photographs of him in various places and are trying to locate Asta (based on her appearance, not her name) to track Harry. General McCallister's people eventually find Harry's spaceship and put it in a building to examine it. There they determine that Harry might be there to destroy humanity.
