    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson Dec 23, 2014

    This is a finalissue that – in stark contrast to the frantic, panicked threat of the previous three chapters slows things right down and lets the deep-seated psychological horror of the situation drip from every page. Once again, each of the strands in the Fire and Stone event manages to hit its own unique tone, and once again Reynolds and Robersoncombine here to paint a suffocatingly bleak picture thats likely to linger in the mind of the reader for a long time to come. This is Aliens done to absolute perfection. Take a bow, gentlemen. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 24, 2014

    This storyline has definitely had its good stuff to it, though having it running at the same time as the other three properties really made for some confusing moments as both Derek and Francis do very similar things along the way in different periods of time. With this issue, giving us a look at just what Derek is going as the last survivor, the things he comes to understand, really does work well. While you may want things to go out with a bang or some big moment, a true last stand, the truth is what we see here is far more likely as it goes down with a whimper, punctuated by a scream, as the unstoppable enemy wins once again.

    This story never seemed to fully reach it's potential. The meeting of the habitants of LV-223 and LV-426 acted more as a point guard for the other series. There areplenty of highlights to talk about too. The shifting of the dynamics between the survivors and how each reacted was presented in a logical manner, and the xenomorphs action was satisfying.

    Creepy Xenomorph tale artfully done, but I wish this team could have been used on a book that didn't have a pre-defined outcome. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Dec 23, 2014

    Im a sucker for questions. Prometheus is my favorite movie because of that, and every story in this Fire and Stone shared universe has followed in footsteps that remind me of Prometheus. But while Im stuck waiting for an Engineer-knows-how-long amount of time for Ridley Scott to create the sequel to my favorite movie, I dont have long to wait for Dark Horse to finish what theyve started.
