The first thing I thought of when I heard the theme for this week was "Visitors" was the 1983 mini-series "V."

I'd also forgotten the cool sunglasses and the space-age swastika logo.
In my research on the topic, I found V's creator's website. Lots of great photos there.
I got the title for my illustration, from this poster. The Garp poster dates it nicely:
